3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It poured a dark brown and yields a black body. A nice white foamy half inch head appeared and lasted for about a good minute. Some spotty lacing appeared here and there along the sides of the glass. The smell was some chocolate, hints of cofee and a bit of hops.
The taste had the chocolate come back with the coffee and hops as some toffee comes out slightly. It left a dry aftertaste. The palate was about medium with a slight creaminess in my mouth. I would say it was mostly drinkable. Overall, this is a good brew that I would come back to. Everything is balanced very well.
*Bottle from Schneiders Getränke, Köln. Fantastic deep roasted chocolate malt. Coffee, not too bitter, not too sweetish. Round and intense with lots of chocolate and roast. Vanilla hints, nice bittered, extreme round and great! JaKeAFC (1150) - ITALY - AUG 12, 2017

Tuoksussa hieman paahteisuutta, suklaata ja maltaita. Maku on tasapainoinen, mutta ei toisaalta valtavan rikas. Mallasleipä maistuu ja myös hieman humala. Perushyvä porter, joka ei petä, mutta ei tuo valtavaa yllätystäkään. Dervock (1370) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2017
