4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Porter cremosa con un gusto ricco e intenso, dominato dal caffè e dall’affumicatura persistente, con note di cioccolato, malti tostati e un tocco di liquirizia. Davvero speciale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A colablack beer with a beautiful light brown and big head. The nose is strongly roasted, some salt liquirice and smoke, also coffee. Good aroma that is surprisingly fresh. Taste is strongly roasted that is balanced with a nice sweetness and the overall taste is not too dry, some chocolate, hint of bready malts. Medium bodied, quite smooth carbonation. Succesfully Porter, nice balance despite of strong roastiness.

50 cl bottle.Thanks lusikka!
Pours dark red-brown color, small off-white head. The first thing on the nose is charcoal from a overly grilled sausage, smoke and burnt malts, some wood and faint peat also. Malty and burnt flavor, ham and some caramel. Unique and quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - opaque brown to black with a nice fawn head.
Nose - smoked peat with some earthy chocolate notes. The combination goes down the charcoal route.
Taste - creamy, smoky & earthy. Just a little toffee that comes round more as the glass goes down.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish considering the style.
Overall - yep, does the trick!
