12 oz. single, $2 at Binnys. Id think more people wouldve rushed for this one to be able to tick off the heretofore unobtainable Lebanon on their stats. My experience with beers made in both Israel and Palestine have found they didnt travel well (in a friends luggage, anyway). But this has come over much better. A roasty malt smell, maybe more apt for a stout, perhaps. Black body with bubbles clinging to the sides like a cola, pours a thick head that dwindles away. Taste is also a bit more roasty than I expect for a porter, though not a stout. A little sweet, though. Mouthfeel is kind of light and thin. Still, many overseas beers without a lot of abv dont come over here in this decent of a shape.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a nice black color with a small tan head. The aroma is malt, plain and simple. The taste is smoky malt. A very enjoyable beer.

Alphadelic (2235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Pretty much zero carbonation. Reasonably sure this got lightly infected at some stage. Some light acidity in a bit of chocolate. Not for me.

wombat23 (1301) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Shared bottle. Pours dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is fairly malty, a little burnt, light roast. Taste is burnt dark malts, earth, ash, and nuts. Weak and watery for a porter. Lacks oomph.

rustbucket0873 (458) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Pours black with tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is spices, coffee, and some earthy and nutty. Not much to nose. Flavor is earthy, with caramel, coffee, snd chocolate, nutty, sweet, and sour flavor at the rear, co2 should have q bit more. Overall, bland not alot to pick out making it complex

floydslip (386) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Dark cola colored beer with a thin foamy beige head. Nose of unsweetened cocoa, brown sugar, and a little bit of smoke. Flavor is consistent with the aroma and is pretty good, although the thin mouth feel keeps the flavors from lingering. Certainly drinkable, but not the most flavorful porter out there.
