3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a thick, shortly lived tan head. Aroma is unique, nutty, soy sauce, poly-glue, spice and hint of chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, vinegar, deep roasted malts, soy sauce. Palate is slightly oily and moderate to full bodied. Overall enjoyable but perhaps needs a tweak on the aroma.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Near-black beer with a thick foamy head. Sweet malt and chocolate aroma. Flavour is a hit of hop followed up by a slightly smoky combination of fruit, malt and the chocolate again. It’d be nice if it had a bit more aftertaste but it’s an absolutely delicious beer anyway.

Bottle shared by chriso at RBWG - thanks! Pours a deep brown with a beige ring for a head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted and roasted malts, and earthy hops. The flavor goes the same way. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, bitter mouthfeel. Really nice hoppy porter, more like a black IPA. Excellent beer.

Lightly dry finish. Dark chocolate, light molasses. Moderate sweet, light bitter taste. Good light earthy, herbal citrusy hop. Impressive black IPA / hoppy porter. Good stuff. Up my alley.
