2.75/5  rDev -4.8%
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.

This beer calls itself a Porter Belge or belgian porter..what is a belgian porter anyway ? let's see

A: dark reddish-brown colour witth no head retention (it has dissapear in 2 mili-second)
S: closed nose of burn, not too inviting
T: burnt flavor, not much body, bad bitter aftertaste,
D: at 2,59$ it's very expensive for a porter that doesn't have much to offer.

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.
