Ratings

The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

Dark blackish-brown in colour, pouring a nice 0,5cm head. Aromas of roasted malts & coffee, dark rye bread and iron (!) hints towards a brown ale, even though this is a porter. Carbonizationlevel is quite low, which makes it less refreshing than desired and the beer itself light-bodied. In regards of taste, it’s very watery and thin for a porter to be- without tasting foul in any way. I find hints of dried fruit such as prunes/raisins and very subtle coffee. The beer itself is not much to write home about, but the afMalditatertaste is nice and sweet though.
