The beer looks lovely. It looks like a Porter should. The beer has a nice very dark ruby red color. In the dark it almost looks like it is black. The beer seems to be crystal clear. In the light it has a nice ruby red glow. On top of the beer a very small layer of soft almond coloured foam is formed. Foam retention is low; only a minimal drape is left after only a few moments. Nice looks.
The beer has a rather mild smell. I wish it was stronger. The minimal aroma that is there, is very nice. I smell nice smoke, which is placed upon nice smoked malts, hints of chocolate and coffee, some nice fruity hops, dark fruit and a slight yeasty acidity, together with some oak wood. However, it is very mild. It should be way stronger.
The taste is way better. It is much stronger. I taste nice strong malts. The dark malts have some smoked and burnt flavours, but also chocolate and coffee. There is nice dark fruit like plum to. Lovely. It is enhanced by extra strong smoked flavours. Lovely. There are some nice bitter and slightly acidic hops, giving just that fresh twist. There is also a slight acidic touch of yeas. Very nice, I like it. It is well balanced.
The palate of the beer is fine. Full body, smooth texture, high carbonation. Lovely. The finish of the beer is nice. There is a nice full maltiness, with delicate smoked flavours. There is also a nice fruity touch of the hops. Nice. All in all, a very good Smoked Porter. Just my cup of tea, I like it.
(Thx!) Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark brown amber. Nose is sweet chocolate, sweetness & chocolate feels a bit artificial, Oreo in a weird way. Taste is sweet plastic, chemical cacao, chocolate, Oreo, sugar,… Body is plastic, overly artificial sweet. Not bad but felt a bit too artificially sweet oddly. Didn't get smoke honnestly. llucmaduell (295) - barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 18, 2017
A beer of a peculiar style and that in catalonia is very rare. The beer I liked, forceful, evolves into the glass, with contrasting tastes. A beer to have a good time.
