3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Santa Barbara
My father picked this one out; I donít think Iíve ever seen it in Washington state. Dark pour, very little head. Pretty nice nose, chocolate and just a touch of porter vinous sourness; a belgian yeast thing and more smoke than I would have expected. Flavor is just a little bit sweet, bakerís chocolate and again those vinous notes. A bit thin would be my main complaint. My wife was very impressed and stole my glass. I go a bit against the grain here and actually think this was nice.

Pours dark brown with a fairly large head that however dissipates quickly, leaving an uneven thin foam on top of the beer. Malt, roasted coffee aroma. Pleasantly roasted flavour, though the flavour seems a bit alcoholic for "only" 6Ĺ%. Decent enough, but not earth-shattering.

Swing top bomber bottle. Aroma is sweetly skunk with some darkness. Appearance is dark brown with a tan head. Taste is European sweet with some dark skunkiness. Palate is pretty neutral. Overall, a decent beer. Very European.

Pours a dark black with fizzy light brown head. Aroma is a mix of toffee, prunes, and other dark fruits. Taste is watered down (but flavorful) with prunes, raisins, other dark fruits, and sweet malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Chiamiamola porter belga o dubbel molto originale, ma niente di eccezionale comunque. Gusto che riechegga i malti tostati, con note di frutta scura e una dolcezza pervasiva da canditi. Gradevole.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at esbls. Medium brown with a ligjt tan head. This has the distinct flavor of a porter from that region. Grape jelly flavor with roasted notes. Not a gret porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark ruby amber with a big frothy 4" head that slowly goes away, thick curving sheets of lace. Taste is lightly spiced sweet caramel malt with a twist of dark fruit and earthy bread. Slightly chalky on the roof of the mouth, but still drinks easily. The finish includes a carbonation edge that brings things back into balance. Slightly off the beaten path,...and quite good. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like a brown ale in the glass as opposed to a porter. Funky fruit and some leather aromas. Spicy yeast and toasted dark bread notes followed by a dryness on the palate. Overall, nice... I dig the large ceramic bottle too! Thanks to jmoore102 for bringing it to the tasting.
