PabloZab (1720) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle 0.5l. Clear, dark-brown colour. Short, beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is full of dark, bitter chocolate, cacao and subtle note of vanilla. There is also a lot of cocolate and cacao in taste. Beer is medium body, bitter at the beginning and sweet in aftertaste with a little bit astringent finish. It warms inside and burns a little bit in the throat but all is very nice. Decent porter with very clear notes of added ingredients especially cacao nibs.
