3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10cl sample at Fairbar, Aarhus. The bartender promised me a filthy, intense mighty porter. Though he didn’t convince me, i haven’t yet had a less smoked porter... At least i can’t recall which one it would be. With closed eyes i would have guessed that it was a 30/70 mix of porter and IPA. Fairly easy to see through. Perhaps it would be good for food, but it didn’t impress me. I enjoy most beer though! ;)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Ølbaren. Black with a golden-tinged head. I’m loving the spicy aroma from the rye malt. Works really well here. Tastes like a very well executed porter/stout, with lots of roasted, chocolate and coffee flavours, but the constant presence of rye keeps it interesting. Well balanced and drinkable. Put me down as a fan.
