Draught. Pours dark brown in color with a foamy tan head. Licorice and light salty seawater in aroma. Flavor is quite similar at first. Some sweetness is there as well, might be some fudge perhaps and some milk chocolate notes appears. Light spicyness with some roasted coffee notes in finish along with some licorice as well. Quite tasty.

Very dark red, you can now see through it with a bright enough light. Nose is more stodgy malts, and cheap milk chocolate, however, there’s a subtle hint of bacon too. But where are the hops?!?!? TOffee and coffee taste - lovely. Some sherbet, so the hops are there somewhere. Long hoppy finish, with toffee and some burntness living on. Not as good as batch 1, the aroma let it down a little. (6-4-7-4-15=3.6) Maybe that’s a bit stingy?
Roasted malts, hints of chocolate on the nosefeel. Pitch black colour, small head. Quite sweet flavor, roasted feel from aftertaste. Quite ok porter. olio (10265) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2013

Kaatuu lasiin mustana ja niukalla vaahdolla. Haju on valtavan savukinkkuinen, lisäksi paahteisen puinen, hieman suklainen ja lievää hedelmäisyyttä on ehkä taustalla. Maku on paahteisen savuinen, hieman kinkkuinen, puinen, havuinen ja valtavan suolainen. Suutuntuma on täyteläisen katkera. Kokonaisuutena ihan ok porter, ei sen enempää, muttei toki vähempääkään.
