3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks!
Look: pitch black, beige frothy to creamy head.
Aroma: light licorice or minty (hops?), light smoke or rather ashy, black malts - some coffee and black chocolate. Some acid fruitiness is revealed when it is warmed up.
Taste: very dry roasted and ashy, thinnish body, and dry moderate bitterness in the finish. Again, a drop of sweetness appears by the time you finish the glass.
An ’Irish stout’ kind of porter.
