3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Appearance is black and bubbly, like cola without the foam. Aroma is not too strong but you get a bit of roasted malts. Taste is neutral, there is only a little bit of bitterness in it. Soft mouthfeel, carbonation is pretty easy as usual. It’s an OK porter but nothing to write home about. Easy to drink for people not familiar with porters because it’s not that strongly flavoured.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pub Edo. Dark chocolate, malt, molasses and coffee aromas present. Fairly well-balanced between bitter and sweet. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Once it comes to room temperature fig and prune flavors are also present while the chocolate and coffee tastes are still present. Nice smooth finish with some espresso bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to a plastic cup @ Nippon Craft Beer Festival 2014. Pours dark brown with a small layer of foam. There is definitely some roasted malts and coffee in the aroma. Taste is also multi-layered - at first there is more sweet malts and fruits, following by drier and more roasted aftertaste. Feels quite light for a porter but is quite enjoyable nonetheless. Dark fruits and coffee. Good beer in winter, would go well with pork dishes.
