Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-09 getrunken. Hier domminiert ein kaltes Kaffeearoma in Nase und Gaumen. Nach dem Abgang bleibt ein recht trockenes Mundgefühl was später wenn das Bier nicht mehr kalt war deutlich abgenommen hatte. EIn spannendes und doch solides Teil.

PowY (993) - AUSTRIA - SEP 30, 2017
From tap at Muted Horn, Berlin. Very dark mahogany color with a beige head. The aroma is full of roasted malt with lots of coffee, some caramel, burnt wood; slightly earthy and peaty - very nice aroma. Medium body with a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. Very balanced. The flavor is again full of roasted malt - coffee, toffee, caramel, some chocolate. Finishes lightly bitter, roasty with some burnt notes. Very nice porter!
