3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy dark brown colour with a thin broken tan head. The aroma is of liqourice and malt, leading to a stong bitter flavour with lots of alcohol inspired liqourice and dark chocolate. It’s a rather nice porter, but the alcohol is starting to take over a little which does not improve the flavour.
