3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. deep brown body, small tan head. oily black patent char in the nose with a milder sense of campfire wood/ash. medium body, somewhat oily texture, medium-low carbonation, sweet with lots of dark chocolate / coffee / roast, but combine the effervescent Belgian yeast with some burnt grain husks and chalky yeast, well, the texture and body could use some refinement.

This is a seriously good beer. This is by far the best porter i have ever had. It is mellow yet has really deep and complex flavours.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very interesting porter, very refinated and aromatic, even the coffee flavours are more sweet than others porters, and have hints of smoke as the german rauchbiers. And the best is that is way drinkable than most of porters.

Great beer, one of my favourites at the moment. Rich taste of chocolote, bread, subtle smoke en bitter coffee, interesting aftertaste. A little masterpiece actually.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Capones. Poured a good looking medium to thicker bodied dark black with a full foamy beige head. Aroma is nice, notes of smoked meat, pork and ham, campfire. Flavor is big and roasty with smoke and campfire along with pork and a touch of dark chocolate. Palate is spot on with a big full body that is slightly syrupy along with average carbonation and a creamy finish. This was probably the best beer of the trip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark bodied, stable head. Mocha, biscuit, bit meaty, earthy, some cacao, woody piney hops base. Nice body (to justify the 7%) for a straight proter, not overly foamy too. Yeast is clean enough. Very decent although somewhat uninteresting porter. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)
