This is my favourite beer style ,what a great 4 pack from this brewery. The bottle poured an inky black with a fluffy tan head, very tight bubbles. The scent of this beer was coffeeish and chocolaty with hints of ripe plums. The creamy rich head was followed by an intense flavour dominated by roasted notes and sweet caramel, finishing with a lovely chocolate sensation. The lingering flavour was still around well after the bottle was gone. This beer is truely a stand out in their range and accordingly this is the brewers favourite style.

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 (1164) - 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!

Bottle from Yamaya. A little old. Soft, chocolaty malt, rich, caramel, some berries, a bit oxidized. Cloudy dark brown, low thick head. Lots of cocoa, berries, light roast. Very well balanced, great chocolate malt but not very sweet. Peppery, bitter finish works well. Body is a bit light, but smooth. Nicely done overall.

Nice porter. Good balance of chocolate and nuts with long aftertaste. Didn’t try to do too much
