3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Enormous, brownish head topping a pitch-black liquid and leaving some thin lacing. Strong malty aroma; caramel, berries, metal and hints of molasses. Bittersweet taste, mostly malty with a lot of berries, light chocolate, hints of liquorice and a tad of alcohol. Full body, slick/thick texture and soft carbonation. Finish is relatively short, medium-long at most, follows the taste but there is more molasses in it. Overall the beer is really good and surprisingly drinkable for a porter, could have a bit stronger character especially in regards to the finish which seems rather watery for a porter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a pint-sized bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a full, wet/watery black body with a big foamy-creamy dark tan head that had good retention, and great lacing and cling. Its aroma had a floral and dark fruit bend, with some notes of chocolate, licorice, and raisin, and light touches of molasses and candy, and some earthy hops. It had a deep fruity sweetness with some lighter chocolate and caramel, and a sour grainy and earthy component, with touches of licorice and molasses. Its body was wet and watery with a lighter and thinner mouthfeel, and lower carbonation and fizz.
