3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark cola color. A one-finger head of light mocha shading is formed, fading to a thin film rapidly. Not much lacing is left on the glass.
S: There’s a bit of dry chocolate on the nose, backed by very mild hopping, some fruity esters (even a hint of tartness), and some toffee. The aroma is a bit plain, but far from bad.
T: The start is quite fruity, before developing a chocolaty middle and vaguely mineral-esque finish. It’s easy drinking nature offsets its simplicity somewhat.
M: It’s a bit thin, and perhaps even watery. The empty finish is very disappointing, though it has a positive effect of creating fantastic drinkability.
O: Not a bad attempt at a porter - however, it still needs some work. Making it a bit more flavorful would be a great start, but I at least enjoy how drinkable it is.
From estucerveza. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Age. Watery, with a light coffeeness and some lemon acidness that feels a bit out of place without completely ruining it ShivanDragon (4643) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2017

Thanks! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ ZZT 2017. I have heard about these guys, interesting to see craft beer coming out of the Middle East besides Israel and a rare example in Palestinia. Dark brown amber. Nose is thin poor weak herbal leaves amber. Subpar weak herbal dry leaves, empty grainy, herbal coffee,.. Thin poor grainy,… Cool to get something different from that region, quality is quite low here honestly. Maakun (6543) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017

It has a milk chocolate and coffee flavour with malty, nutty and roasted notes on the smooth milk chocolate finish. Pretty good. Koelschtrinker (21757) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 17, 2017
Mild röstiger Antrunk, cremig, wenig herb. Leichte Schokoladennoten, unaufdringlich karamellig ohne sonderlich süß zu sein. Etwas brotig, angenehm hopfig, was immer hinter dem Malz bleibt, das Bier aber frisch und vollmundig macht. Gut. 9/10/10/10/8/10 Geiserich (4635) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 3, 2017
