Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. About a finger of tan head formed on a dark brown, almost black body. The head held solidly. Smells of roasted malt, tinge of burnt barley, black licorice, and dry barn hay. Milky taste, toasted barley, strong black licorice and dark chocolate. Alcohol in the breath at the end. Texture is creamy and smooth. Low carbonation. Extremely well made and balanced. A dark profile without left up. The licorice might be too much for some.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2014
A sugar bomb of a strong porter. Like dessert in a glass. A pint is way too much dessert for my taste. It would pair pretty well with chocolate cake or a mousse but on its own those sugars are overwhelming. Looks good: lush, pillowy head with a dark body. First sniff and I’m anticipating a sugar monster - very sweet. Dominated by molasses. Also marshmallows and some of those hard candy necklaces. First sip and it’s sweet alright. All I can taste is brown sugar. Bit of chocolate, spoonful of treacle, handful of raisins, faint alcoholic burn. No complexity, no subtlety - just liquid sugar. Lightly carbonated - under-done in my book. It’s not that it’s badly made, it’s just that it’s well-made in the sense that Coca-Cola or a Krispy Kreme doughnut is well made - if you can stomach either of those you’ll probably love this. (Pint bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 27/11/14)

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of ElDesmadre. Murky black color with medium frothy light brown head, poor lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of dried fruits, dandelion syrup, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste starts with sweet and rich roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate, follows by fruity acidity, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish.Full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Hell of a strong brew; you can’t taste much alcohol, but you feel it quickly...

Pours from a bottle a rich deep dark color with small head. Thick creamy mouthfeel, taste of sweet malt, chocolate, and brown surgar,nice warmth of alcohol with light hops and milk chocolate in the finish.

500ml bottle. Poured black with some flashes of ruby red and a dense beige head. Smells like toffee and fruity, molasses. Luscious mouth feel without being too full. Tastes very sweet and fruity. Smooth and easy drinking. Delicious.

Nalewa się z ładną, drobną i beżową pianą, samo piwo jednak nie jest całkiem czarne, ale ciemnobrunatne. Pachnie czekoladowo i karmelowo, głównie takie właśnie ciemne słody, ale nie palone. Nie czuć w aromacie paloności. Również w smaku jej nie ma. Jest za to ciemna czekolada, lekko kwaskowa. Całkiem przyjemnie smakuje, dość lekko. Więcej goryczki i palnoności by mu nie zaszkodziło, ale cóż, wtedy byłby jak inne portery, a tak przynajmniej się wyróżnia. Podsumowując, Grand do przyjazny i łagodny porter, o dość prostym profilu.

warhawk91 (291) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2014
16.9 oz bottle. Pour is a clean black with a modest light beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate with hints of coffee and hops. Taste is chocolatey sweet with a slight note of bitter coffee and cream. Touch of molasses. Very silky smooth mouthfeel. You do feel the booze kick on the way down to warm your chest. Nice sipping beer.
