3.39/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours very dark brown color, black like a cola. Very little beige head, almost no retention or lacing.

S: The smells are very Porter like. You get leather, smoke, chocolate, biscuit-y malts and a light mineral twang.

T: Very porter like again. Follows the nose quite well but sweeter than expected, a bit too much I'd say for the balance of the beer. You get a lot of leather, sweet chocolate, smoke, biscuit malts and minerals from the water.

F: A bit heavy and sticky for what it is, which is expected considering how sweet it is. At 4,5%, it should be less

O: This is a decent beer. Nothing to go crazy about, but not necessarily something to avoid either. One thing is sure, this feels a lot more like a Porter than a Scwarzbier if you ask me. It should have less residual sugars, it should be more hoppy, it should use a less mineral water (which is typical of UK beers if you ask me) for it to be more of a Schwarzbier and less of a porter.

Pours a brown/black body with a very thin head and minimal lacing. Strong mineral flavor mixed with cold strong coffee, quite nice. Body is medium and lacks a little but if they could clean up the appearance, this is a good first showing...especially for a rarer style.
