3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub shared by Erwin Van Moll. Nice dark red-brown color with a dark red hue coming through, medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, roast, toasted malts, chocolate, a bit earthy. Tastes about the same: malts, roasted malts, toasted malts, bitter, earthy, some caramel and brown malts, earthy bitter. Medium body, medium a bit fizzy yet suitable carbonation. Good porter. Style wise this would score 4+ imo, but since that’s not the way we rate on RB my score is a little lower.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. BB 15/04/2015. (Cava Π)
Dark reddish brown colour with a small frothy light tan head.
The aroma is delightfully hoppy, chocolatey, roasted malty, mildly bitter and marmalade sweet. Yummy! The flavour is also very nice. Fruity hops, mild bitterness, mild roasted malt and chocolate in a dark flavour. It’s just a tad thin - but hey - it’s only 5.5%. This beer really flips the Greek ratings to another dimension. Well done!

Bottle from Greek SM
Brown with dark amber tints, nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel malts. The same in the flavor, nice but not very complex. Finish is just the same, a bit thinner bodied than expected and a bit higher carbonation.
Good brew but nothing special...
