17.07.2016 Şişe, İstanbul.
Görüntü: simsiyah renk, açık kahverengi, oldukça küçük kabarcıklı köpük. Yarım parmak altı kalıcı.
Koku: kavrulmuş malt, kahve, alttan ise vişnemsi kırmızı meyve tınıları geliyor.
Damak: çok dolgun değil, kahve, kavrulmuş malt tatları önde, kalıcılık hafif kavruk tatların dışında çok kompleks değil, kalıcılık da yüksek değil.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark pour with good head. Smooth silky texture, roasted malts, mild chocolate with a coffee like tang. Some berry notes as well. Good but not as transcendent as their Oatmeal stout.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet fruity caramel smell, hopsy taste, medium carbonation, no head, bitter aftertaste, chestnut brown color, dry to semi-dry, some nice citrus twist that makes it a bit lighter.
I drank it colder than recommend.
You get a bit more dynamic taste than from the standard porter.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost black with a solid and creamy off-white head which shows good retention and some lacing. Delicate but persistent aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate and red fruits. Taste has delicate roasted malts, a sweet milky feel, red fruits and a coffee note. Sweet and bitter notes are in awesome balance, both are vivid but none is standing out. Leaves a pleasant mix of coffee and fruitiness in the aftertaste. Light to medium body with light crispness. It’s very smooth but somehow still manages to feel pleasantly creamy and persistent on the mouth. A delicate, perfectly balanced beer. Top notch quality
