355mL bottle, courtesy of Gilberto. Pours a dark cola-brown color with a medium-tan head; well formed with nice lacing. Layers of molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, and wood, with an herbal and alcoholic layer underneath. Aromatic and generous throughout. Lively, velvety carbonation with a lean-feeling, medium-full body; following the aroma, notes of molasses and cinnamon, "light but not wimpy," as my wife put it, with a touch of spiciness, ginger, and fruity alcohol (certainly) poking through, keeping things alive and light on the palate. Really nice, rich wood character (like notes of bright oak), and an interesting, assertive presence on the palate. Candied notes and some crystallized brown sugar in the finish, some lingering bitterness.

A decent barreled porter. Pours a thick black with absolutely no head. Smells of rum, sugar cane and vanilla. Taste is almost like port, quite viscous, almost no carbonation, with some rum, wine and slight vanilla. This particular bottle may have been a bit flat.

On tap at the brewery. Solid black with beige persistent thin head. Amazing aroma, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, coffee, wood. Taste is toasted malts, coffee, brown sugar. Sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, quite thin for the complexity of the beer. Very nice imperial porter, specially on tap.

Courtesey of Kraddel. Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ De Rampkrot. BBF 30/03/2015. Blackish dark brown with no head. Nose is soy sauce, herbal, pure fish guts, overly umami & flat. Taste is weird combination of vanilla upfront, plenty of it and sugar sweet followed by flat soy sauce, fish guts, umami, herbal,…. Nearly flat, nope this isn’t it.

denisconrado (23) - Montezuma, BRAZIL - FEB 9, 2015
Aparência: mais um belo rótulo da série Extreme; ausência de espuma em baixa temperatura, mas na adequada apresenta espuma cremosa e café; coloração negra, com nuances de castanho. Aroma: só libera na temperatura adequada, muito café e amadeirado. Paladar: continua o café e o amadeirado, mais suave do que uma maturada em carvalho, ou seja, o mesmo resultado de uma cachaça maturada na amburana e outra no carvalho. Ah, nem lembrei do álcool, só quando levantei da cadeira! Achei o custo-benefício muito bom aqui em Minas!

statnia część przygody z piwami z Brazylii. Porter zostawiliśmy na sam koniec. Aromat czekolady dość intensywny. W smaku również. Do tego dość słodkie. Moc wcale nie była bardzo odczuwalna, przynajmniej w smaku, co sprzyjało pijalności. Piwo wydawało mi się też nieco wodniste jak na porter, ale wypiłem ze smakiem. Dobre, ale bez szaleńczego zachwytu.

felip989 (103) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 28, 2015
Black with a very small beige head. Aroma is quite simple and not very pronunciated: wood, earthy hop, cocoa, some light caramel, toffee and molasses. Taste is cocoa, wood, roasted malt, some smoked and alcoholic notes, some hoppy bitterness and vanilla. Bitter aftertaste with some spiciness and whisky mouthfeel (booze, malt, wood...). Nice strong Porter!
