3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Very deep red, large self-supporting beige head, some sinky bits. Plenty of CO2 in the aroma due to the high carbonation. Aroma like a
belgian bruin. Quite refreshing palate, lively carbonation. Not a big taste at all, again like a belgian bruin, but slightly watered down, and not at all sticky. Pleasant rubbery burnt corner to the taste. Fairly spicy too, cloves, a touch fruity, and some sticky raw hops,
Has a slightly tingly hoppy finish. Very refreshing, I prefer this
to many bruins despite the fact that the flavour profile is very
similar. No hint of 6.5%, drink this by the pint.

Ceramic swing top bottle poured a clear amber with a small off white head. Aromas of brown sugar, fruity, and light spice. Palate was light and dry. Flavors of straw, honey and spice with a dry finish. Sure does’nt seem like a porter to me.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled @ DBF2004: Dark amber coloured. Light brown head. Malty and sweet nose. This is some shitty porter without any flavour what so ever. I can sense some vague smoke notes, but thats all. BORING.
