3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A deep dark brown colour with cinnamon coloured thick head. Some lacing sticks to the glass as the head dissolves. Aroma has lots of forest-like qualities, sweet malty notes and chocolate. Taste has this forest-like flavors too, a bit too much in my opinion. Then there is lots of roasted flavors, chocolate and some grassy hops. A slightly oily body and medium-to-low carbonation. The original Koff Porter is still the better one, but I have to give Sinebrychoff some credit for trying something new for once.
