3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown beer with brownish quickly disappearing head. Interesting idea to brew a Porter with rye and Pumpernickel. The dark bread taste is easily noticable with roasted malts and some nuts in the finish. However I find some punch is missing. Not enough intensity and body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit weird and unbalanced. Yet tasty and ok.
Dark color with a tan head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Decent body and an ok carbonation. Bready like pumpernickel, some toffee, some spices and mild roasted.
