3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Think it’s past is BBE, so I’ll forgive the over-carbonation. Pours black, thick beige head. Aromas of liquorice, molasses. Taste is more of the same, slightly sweet. Full bodied though. Not bad.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma bom, lembra café e até olivas (azeitona e azeite). Aparência razoável, pouco cremosa e vim pouca espuma. Coloração típica de cervejas escuras. O que né desagradou muito foi o sabor e o retrogosto. Achei amarga em excesso, difícil de deglutir. Uma das poucas cervejas que achei desagradávelmente amarga. E o gosto permanece. No geral, não achei uma boa cerveja.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A colablack beer with a dense, creamy, quite big and beige head. The nose is balanced. Dark chocolate, liquirice and roastiness, hint of coffee. Taste is quite dry and roasted, some sourness and salt, coffee in the end. Quite light to drink but it’s not bothering too much. Aroma is good but then the taste is slightly too thin and simple. Anyway, good beer.

Turussa, kotona. Decent roasted porter. The end of the bottle turned out to be a bit watery, anyway this was enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pours black in color with a tan head. Milk chocolate and fudge in aroma with hints of roasted coffee as well. Roasted malts, minerals and salty licorice in taste, perhaps even some notes of burnt wood or smokyness is present in there. Overall a quite nice brew with a dry and bitter, just slightly burnt chocolatey finish.

A bit odd aroma with strong buttery tones and some toffee. Flavour has butter, some toffee, distant ashy notes and some licorice. Too much butter here.
