look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark brown with a light mocha head, pretty frothy and messy.
There's a bit of oxidation on the nose, but also nice roasted malts, an unexpected fruitiness, not just the generic dried dark fruit, bit of chocolate and faint coffee. Doesn't really scream anything in particular.
Zesty sip, with a nice berry note, fresh plum, but quickly getting drier and drier, with raisin and faint dried fig. Roast, chocolate biscuits, sweet dark caramel malt, with dry dusty hints of walnut and coffee in the finish, with the zestiness still lingering.
Aftertaste has sugared toast, light prune, burnt sugar and a touch of hop. Medium to light body, medium carbonation, "soft" and pretty smooth.
A refreshing porter, nothing too complicated, but no reason to be disappointed.

Aroma is dark malts, fruit and bananas. The flavor is bananas, chocolate, malts, fruit and a mix of acidity and tartness in the finish.
