3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Very black, not much light shines through this in the glass. Light brown very creamy head leaving laces on the glass. Pronounced burned, dry bitterness - probably not only from the hops but also from the black malts. A very solid Porter. 150405

Bottle at home ... Thanks to Pat ... Deep solid black ... nice roast and lots of alcohol in nose ... roast malt ... bit bitter ... some hop character ... bit over powerful with the balance a bit off but still ok.
