The witch is back and looking sexy. I don’t recall her ever leaving but I wanted to come in strong with the intro. Very wonderful looking beer, all but completely opaque with a small hint of dark ruby mingling in the darkness. Beige is the head that leaves fine lacing. Smells a bit of the forest, dank, leathery and earthy as well as roasty malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is the same, leaves a bitter and dry finish. The mouthfeel suffers a bit, not the usual slightly oily, thicker body I look for in a fine Porter. All the same, she’s a spellbinder and I’d drink this any day you’d buy it for me.

Black beer w nice aroma and great appearance. It tastes nice as well, however maybe a bit too weak in mouth feel and alcohol to get the best of it.

Look: almost black with faint red highlights, big beige creamy head with good retention.
Aroma: licorice, sweet chocolate, blond malt and spicy herbal hops.
Taste: light sweetness on a mostly dry body with spicy herbal hop bitterness. Not much roast or fruit. Quite a hoppy stout (which was labelled as a porter).
