3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Stale coffee, harsh roastiness, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. Not a fan of the aroma. The flavor is really no better. Quite bitter with tons of roasted malt and coffee ground flavors. Some bitter dark chocolate, a bit of earthiness, maybe some slight malty sweetness. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown colour. Full rich character is chocolatey, a bit nutty. Hop bitterness is moderate, which I find appetizing in a porter. Very full, smooth body. Goes down reaaaaallly easy. Great stuff, an old favourite.

Bottle, 5.3%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour. Seems hazy. Small light brown head. The flavour is bready, has a mild coffee note. Low bitterness, it seems, but actually a little unpleasant.
