Pffft. The consensus is a philistinic ass! You put this stuff in a bottle that says "Ayinger Celebrator" on it, the consensus won’t know the difference, and it’ll rate a 4.1+! Wow. Just wow. <shakes head>

It’s a dead ringer for the Celebrator, I swear on any future children that I have, it’s the absolute truth. Even the head and retention rate is an exact match.

Pours with an okay head. Color is typical porter color, that is, coffee-like. Aroma is again typical porter: plums, dates, other dark fruits, burnt notes, coffee, mämmi, dark chocolate. A little bit of alcohol, but it’s not too distinct. Nothing surprising here, but the aroma is still very good. Palate is balanced and has both dry and oily parts. A surprisingly good palate that I’ve used to in porters. Taste is light compared to other porters I’ve had and its not overwhelmingly "portery", but rather has the sweetness and oversweet malt notes more compromised, which leads to a lighter and less "heavy" expression of the porter style. The beer is thus rather easily drinkable and one doesn’t get that "full feeling" that one gets with very rich porters, where just 2 dl might be enough to make you satisfied. This beer can be enjoyed in larger quantities without feeling full of it, so it’s in some sense similar to Guinness-style stouts. So the taste has typical porter flavours, but in addition few interesting notes like honey and vanilla. A very interesting porter that I would buy again just because of the lighter expression of the porter style, which enables one to enjoy this beer in 0.5l to 1 liter or more quantities, rather than 0.2 dl.
