Is this a porter? Looks like a porter, but that’s where it ends for me. There is a sour raisin type smell that permeates. The flavor is smokey and burnt in a bad way. This actually reminds me a lot of Celebrator doppelbock.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light brown low but lasting head. Very dark, almost black, red body. Sweet burned malt aroma with coffe caramel notes. Complex flavor, relatively sweet coffee, raisin, plum and a bit of choccoloate. Interesting and different. Not much carbonation or bitterness. Long sweet bitterness, maybe a bit too sweet for a porter. Alcohol well hidden.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, orange-tinted, khaki head. The hearty, earthy nose is a whirlpool of malt, esters and phenols... caramel, toffee, chocolate, molasses, medium sherry, seared beef, dark raisins and tobacco. Sweet, lightly acidic flavor with gobs of chocolate, raisins, tobacco, medium sherry and caramel. Earthy hops endeavor to pare the malt’s cloyingly sweet edges. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and chocolaty.
