3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at EBBC12. Coffee and treacle nose, body is smooth with liquorice, treacle and coffee notes and hints of smoke and tobacco (not tobacco smoke!).
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 Arômes de noisettes et café. Robe noire, mousse beige stable. Liquoreux, mais peu goûteux pour le style: torréfaction, grain, alcool. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, clear beer with a small light tanned head on top. Aroma has notes of tobacco, leather, woody notes and nuts. Flavor is light sweet, vegetal, some notes of tree bark, definitely some leathery tobacco notes in there. A quite thin and light body, light in flavor and short in light sweet aftertaste. Decent and easy to drink, low in carbonation and just ok without being extraordinary. alex_leit (5018) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUL 24, 2017

Handpump at Osteria del Borgo (Rome-Italy). Black color, tick beige head with retention. Nose: wow! Peat, leather, old leather belt, roast. Mouth: rich and easy, charming roast, end is watery, mild bitterness. colui72 (1083) - HONG KONG - APR 3, 2017
Pours black with a nice beige head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, and spicy tobacco. Tastes of toasted malts, pepper, tobacco (yes they added tobacco leaves here!), notes of coffee. Quite a rich porter, medium-light bodied, taste doesn’t linger much, though. Decent overall. L_Lovecraft (695) - - MAR 29, 2017
Some smoked notes but no intensity in my bottle, dark brown with a thin head, light/medium body, smoked and roasted, some coffee...not as good as i thought. stefgrig (13) - kalamaria, GREECE - MAR 22, 2017

Ce palais est doucement cajolé par des notes de malt, de tabac et de fumée grillées dans un goût légèrement acide qui satisfera les fumeurs. Les amateurs de Porter apprécieront sa texture épaisse et grasse.
