330 ml. bottle shared with Kraddel @ Rampkrot. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Cool Magic the Gathering style label. Very dark wood blackish brown, solid dark mocha head. Nose is sweet oily, umami, leaves, smell is rather weak. Taste is weird mushroom, leaves, umami, lots of basic cheap mocha powder sweetness, cacao powder, good deal of soy sauce. Lower body & powdered cacao body. Okay for what it is but nothing close to impressive for a porter. kraddel (8876) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2015

Small coarseish beige head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque black body goes dark brown at edges. Herbal vinegary grainy aroma with perfumy notes. Dryish mealy earthy chocolate taste with vague acidic tinge and herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish herbal perfumy aftertaste with vaguely roasty mealy notes. No good.
