2.78/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A - A very brownish, opaque black with little head and some visible carbonation.
S - Mostly smells of hemp, chocolate and coffee, with a little yeasty hint.
T - First very sour and weedy with lots of hemp flavours. Raw and leafy, and not nearly as much coffee or chocolate flavours as the nose suggests. Quite bitter hops and strong in alcohol. Too much hemp taste.
M - Drying and slightly watery, but decent.
D - Quite low. Having a hard time finishing just the one.

341 mL brown bottle. They call this one a Belgian Porter, so I had a tough time fitting this into any traditional style.

Pours a murky dark brown with a vanishing off-white head.

Aroma is of coffee and molasses with some musty notes.

Sweet and thick, with lots of dried fruit flavours. Dark chocolate and coffee notes are present as well as black pepper and some earthiness. A bit hot on the tongue from the alcohol and high carbonation.

Overall, not so great. Definitely something off about this one.
