4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Dempsey’s. Pours like motor oil, shiny and black, with a sizeable, firm beige head. Lots of roasted malts and dark chocolate in the aroma. Flavor was somewhat sweet, but the bitter chocolate, almost like baking cocoa, held things in check. Full bodied, chewy, with fine, soft carbonation. Lingering roasty dryness. Excellent.

(1997 bottle) Black with nice mocha head. Chocolate licorice aroma. Rich coffee chocolate flavor. Little if any bitterness until the aftertaste, which also has a slight alcohol tinge. Very stouty porter, quite delicious.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As Sinebrychoff Porter IV. Bottle from Ledger’s Liquors. Top fermentation! Go Finns! It pours like oil. It smells like dark fruit with a hint of coffee. The color is opaque black with a tan head that didn’t stay long. Thin to medium body with creamy, near chewy, carbonation. The flavor is dark roasted malt, coffee, and light stone fruit? Mouthsmackingly good. It’s going really well with lox, but the lox smoke may affect the ale flavor. Maybe there is some cola in this. It is very tasty. The finish is not all that dry, has remnants of dark roast, and a hint of hop. Maybe light stone fruit, and more than a hint of hop. I think this ale changes from moment to moment. It’s really very, very tasty. Try this before you depart this mortal coil.

Danke an den Doppelbock für die Tauschabwicklung! Süßer, etwas kaffeeartiger Geruch. Cremiger Antrunk, ein süßer Unterton ist immer vorhanden. Von Anfang an ist das Bier röstmalzig, nähert sich gegen Ende hin auch einem Kaffeegeschmack. Ein herbes Aroma scheint nebenbei immer auf der Zunge zu liegen und ergänzt das Bier sehr gut. Weiterhin angenehm cremig. Köbes, noch eins!
