I really liked this beer until the tobacco flavor hit me. It’s an intense tobacco flavor on the back end. I could only finish one.

355ml bottle from BeerMa. Pours a deep cola brown, big tan head that stays around. Chocolate and roasty aroma, a little nut or oat. Great full taste as it warms, roasted barley and chocolate. Simple yet very pleasing. Good smooth feel, medium bitterness with a dry finish. Not huge in flavour range but you can’t fault the execution in the slightest.

550ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma: light roasted malt, liquorice, raisin, chocolate. Taste: light roasted malt, liquorice, caramel, hint of chocolate and a slight sugary sweetness, finish is bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice smooth easy drinking porter.

Pours a very deep brown with a medium, foamy, tan head that settles pretty quickly. The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate, licorice, lesser raisin, and hints of nuts. The taste is dry, mildly bitter, and kind of underwhelming actually. The chocolate along with a fairly heavy caramel are the most pronounced flavors, while undertones are barley, licorice, and hints of coffee. Weak chocolate aftertaste. Light in body, smooth in texture, and a bit softer in carbonation. This isn’t bad at all, but I get the feeling that this one is lacking something.
