3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Very dark ruby brown colour, very close to black. Aroma is yeast, hops, mild roasted malts as well as some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet and mildly acidic fruityness along with roasted malts. As it warms up also some coffeeish and chocolateish notes become present in the flavour too. Nice, but still quite watery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, almost opaque color with small expresso head. Sweetish, chocolaty aroma with some hops. Crisp, tickling carbonation. Starts a bit toasted malty, but then suprisingly flavor leans more towards to bitter and hoppy side. Some menthol in the aftertaste. Dark malts are there, slightly watery finish anyhow. Interesting, although not a really top class porter.

Dryish, good porter, but not a standpoint. A bit of hopsack in the aroma.
