4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In aroma it has dark, tanned, sweet malts. It’s totally black, non-transparent, nice beige head and lacing. In taste it’s very tanned and has a notes of dark chocolate. It has rather small body and it’s a bit to much carbonated, what I don’t like so much in porters. But in the end it has this super cool aftertaste of this dark chocolate.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a creamy beige top. Cigarette buds, coffee grind, a bit of creamy sweetness, burnt caramel. Not my cup of tea but a well crafted beer.
