Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma makes me think of milk with cacao or Nesquick drink with some toasted malt notes on top. Taste has sweet, toasted malt, some cacao and finishes roasty and bitter. Medium to light body. Quite good overall.

Pours really dark brown, almost black, with just a small frothy head, pretty short-living.
Roasted malt on the nose, light dark chocolate, bit of roasted chestnut, faint coffee bean. Quite adequate, actually.
Roasted, scratch that, burnt grain right from the start, feels just like burnt dark bread. A bit of cocoa powder. A weird nutty note, more like.. sesame oil(?!). A crisp lemon zestiness underneath that manages to cut off the weird notes, also the ashy dry finish helps too (mild hop bitterness to boost, too). A touch of oxidation too reminding of black olives.
Aftertaste has burnt bread crust, a bit of coffee powder, a bit of generic bitter hop. Watery, low carbonated.
Not a total train wreck, manages to hit some nice notes (the roasted, ashy finish), but pretty far from a solid porter.
