3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Dark fruityness, dry grainy vibes and notes of cocoa powder in aroma. Dark chocolatey bitterness in taste, even if there’s some milk chocolate sweeter vibes present as well. Some campfire too.
It’s feels a bit dry in mouthfeel. Vague cold coffee notes in the end. More of that soft, but yet quite dark chocolate towards the end. Quite filling considering the abv. Tasty one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 bottle. Black color and a small, beige head. Strong aroma of dark malts, wood, dark fruits, plums, and licorice. Taste is also sweet and very malty although here the licrocie dominates with its salty character. Medium to full body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Apart from the obvious dark malts finish is also full of somewhat bitter plums and hints of dark chocolate. Overall pretty good beer; it gets bonus points for that excellent plum aroma and flavor.

It has a pretty strong aroma of roasted malts and you get some hints of nuts in there (the ones who grows on bushes/trees, not the... well..). When you taste it you get the standard roasted malts, maybe a bit more peat (smoke), caramels leading into a very dry finish. There is a light hoppiness in here also. Pretty standard Porter if you ask me, even if it is above average. It’s OK, nothing more, nothing less.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a tan medium head. Classic porter aroma but with some more medium roasted malty notes, and I also find some stingy oily notes. Taste is mostly chocolate and roasted notes, not very complex. Nice bitterness which ends with a soft sweetness. Overall OK but not very exciting.
