3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep dark brown, nearly black, with a thin light beige head. Nutty chocolaty English aroma. Crisp and medium flavor with a lot of bitter cocoa and roasted black biscuit malt. Lots of roast. Aftertaste has a bit of bittersweet dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. The middle also has a certain mineraliness you usually find in English ales.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Deceptively hoppy/beer aroma, but delightful sweet porter. Very flavorful with light chocolate and malt flavors. Just goes to show you don’t have to follow the current trend of mega ABV to create a very satisfying, tasty beer.
