22 oz. bottle. Pours deep brown-black with a 4x humongous spongy foam that takes an annoying amount of time to settle. Nose is cocoa, caramel, oats and a touch of tart berry. Tastes of dry cocoa, lactose and berry with touches of caramel, light ash and espresso. Near-medium body has a little too much fizz. Nicely balanced with a dry-roasty finish. Good beer but over-carbonated for my tastes.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours nice deep brown with clingy cream head. Aroma of mocha and vanilla. Then the taste hints of choc and coffee but a funky floral fruitiness that detracts from the essense of a porter. Some malt sweetness returns at the finish but the florally fruitiness never goes away

The coffee/chocolate flavors are very subtle...I even get a bit if a sour taste. It’s a nice looking porter though seems a bit watered.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Porter piuttosto classica, caffettosa e tostata come atteso, con una parvenza lattiginosa al palato che non guasta... se fosse una Stout ricorderebbe una Oatmeal.
