3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark seal color, clear but non-transparent. Medium quality tanned head. Very pleasant aroma, full of dark notes - bitter chocolate, espresso coffee, even a bit of smoky notes. Really nice. Itís definitely a bit over carbonated which make it even more drinkable, which is not the thing Iím looking in porters. Itís watery more than I was hopping it will be. In taste very nice roasted notes, dark coffee with tiny touch of chocolate. A bit of roasted bitterness in the end and in the afterates. Itís very nice in overall but I would say itís like a small porter with itís taste, aroma, bitterness and abv.

Draft - Another jet black Porter with no head and very minimal carbonation. Really coats the palate and sticks around for a while in the mouth. Subtle malt and coffee notes on the nose. Good balance of roasted malt (coffee, malt, nuts) and bitterness.
