Dark Brown, almost black with a medium sized, quite creamy beige head. Aroma is soft smoked malt, licorice, caramel, hints of cocoa, sweet coffee and hints of ink. Taste is medium sweet, soft bitter. Finish is sweet caramel and licorice, light smoke, very soft bitter roasted coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied, slight creamy texture, average carbonation.
Soft smoked easy drinkable porter,
Had at Matt's when Theresa was round. Opaque black, beige fluffy head, big fluffy lacing. Smells of dusty (mothball-ish though not in bad way) dry roasted cereal malt. Taste is medium to heavy bitterness, roast/burnt malt, somewhat thin. Body is thin, burnt malt, small carbonation. Not that smoky, dusty nose, taste and palate kind of thin.

Appearance: clear amber-brown, one fat finger of creamy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: smoke, roasty malt, mild chocolate and coffee. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light smoke. (8/10) Medium-full creamy body, moderate carbonation, short duration slightly smoky finish. (4/5)
Good looking and nicely balanced, with the smoke being definitively present, yet not overwhelming. Pretty simple flavours, with just the basics on both the nose and tongue, but decently done. (16/20) melush (4718) - SPAIN - OCT 31, 2015
