Портер, в котором совмещены и жареный ячмень, который дает прекрасное, известное всем любителям английской портерной классики ощущение на вкусовых рецепторах, и новомодный шоколадный солод (называемый так по типу обжарки), который отвечает в нашем ‘Black Magic’ за шоколад, кофе и прочие кондитерские атрибуты.

500ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Black color with beige head. Aroma is roasted malty and quite hoppy, pine, gold crest and spruce, oat, bread, some chocolate and coffee when it gets warmer. Sweet and light bitter taste. Light watery body with soft carbonation.

Scopey (9998) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Keg at Redrum. It pours darkest brown a decent beige head. The nose is rich roast, coffee, creamy, toffee, coffee cake and some stewed orange. The taste is bitter, earthy roast, toast, bitter-sweet, coffee, orange rind, cocoa, peppery, waxy citrus fruits, marmalade and dark chocolate with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Almost like a black IPA. Solid.

Позитив& настрое& хорошее крепкое пиво. Отличне& фирменн& горечь, можно было бы немного плотнее. Плюс, вроде как была заявлен& кислина, поправь& если не так. Не заметил.

The coffee aroma. Bitter chocolate. Excellent body. And hop bitter aftertaste. Good hopped Porter

BOTTLE 50 CL from Sharky Dodson. Some vinegar out of the bottle, that fortunately goes away rather fast. What’s left is a very faint aroma of fresh cut pumpkin and green grassy homebrew-ish hops. The flavour is dry burnt malts (no coffee or chocolate), light body, and (surprise!) quite a hoppy and bitter finish with notes of citrus. Not bad, but rather simplistic, and lacking the fruity chocolaty goodness that we like in a porter.

Tasted it couple of times and every time it was nearly a disaster - no complexity, bitter, no sense of chocolate or coffee

the aroma of caramel malt and toast with shades of chocolate... the taste is caramel and chocolate with good hopping... aftertaste is dry and bitter... nice porter in American traditions...

Dzhigga (281) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottled. Medium caramel head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and some citrus (it seems to be unwanted, but it plays brilliant role in flavour). Strong bitter in taste and very long-lasting bitter aftertaste. Dark bitter chocolate in flavour. Beer’s body is full, texture is thick. It’s hard to drink a lot of such beer, but it’s definitely interesting to be tasted.
