A very nice porter, excellent for the abv in fact. True to the (American) style, big in flavor, dominated by roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, hint of coffee flavors. Delicious and quite dry in the finish. A touch thin, perhaps, but it’s only 5.6%!

W aromacie kwaśna kawa, czekolada, spieczona skórka czarnego chleba, delikatna paloność. Barwa ciemno brunatna, bardzo dobra piana początkowo, dość szybko opada. W smaku lekki porter w punkt. Jest grzecznie gorzki, słodowy, palony i czekoladowy. Świetny wyznacznik stylu. Przez to jednak nie jest super powalający. Bardzo bardzo solidne piwo bez fajerwerków.

Tends to be a bit light compared to the great porters such as Victory at Sea and Founders. It’s very good, but not quite outstanding.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: A sour, alcohol aroma. Slight notes of malts, and raisins.
Appearance: Almost black, with suspended yeast, and a lingering caramel head.
Taste: Malts, currants, and brown sugar.
Palate: Quite bitter at first, with a smooth and sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Light carbonation.
Overall: Not bad at all. I’m not a porter fan, but this was decent. The yeast suspended in the beer didn’t make it look too appealing, but the taste was there!
