3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Eye: pours a coke like murky brown color with a big lasting beige foamy head and medium carbonation.
Nose: coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, dark malts, vanilla, cereal and yeast
Mouth: coffee, earthy leafs, red currant (after second sip) and unfortunately just a bit watery
Palate: roasted hazelnuts, herbal, earthy malts, redcurrant as well, starts to get dryer in the end
Overall: nice porter with a lovely texture and a superb nose. Taste is good but nothing in comparison with the complex nose.

I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in Geneva. I drank in the hotel in Paris. In my point of view, it is a delicious porter and it is better to drink it not so cold to enjoy the ingredients. The body is brown and black, thin and white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is well balanced, roasted malt, bread and the dates, hop and there is a perfect mix between the dry finish and the dates. It is a nice porter, next one please!!!!

Bottle from drinks of world. Aroma with roasted malt dried fruit and dark chocolate. Taste is rather light for 7% even a bit watery. Lacking complexity. But a nice sweetness from dried fruit combined with dark chocolate bitterness at the end.
