2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the brewery.
Thick light brown head that lasts. Red-black color that is clear.
Much dark roasted malts in the aroma, perhaps a bit too much for a porter. Very dark roasted malt taste that isn’t really balanced with any other tastes and it get one dimensional. Medium bitterness and a tiny sweetness.
