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.
