sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2016
Draft @ Barborteur Beerdays #1, 14.5.2016. brune foncée, col fin beige doré au verre. Arôme est léger mais plein de belles notes de malts, retrouve un léger grillé et caramel. Palais est plaisant et restant dans un style tout à fait classique de stout anglais, léger chocolaté et grillé apportant une certaine sécheresse et longueur de bouche. Je note aussi une fine note de fumé et un fini finement aigrelet de baies rouges. Classique revisitant les grands styles anglais, serait bien de voir cette version au cask poussé à l’azote.

Flaske 330ml. Delt med Rune i WC-veien 25 Apr 16. Svart. Lavt mokkafarget skum. God karamellaroma. Tørr. Smaken sjokolade & lakris. Lettere tørr etter hvert.

Rune (10906) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2016
330ml bottle bought at BottleDog, King’s Cross. A decent, bubbly, fawn-coloured head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Jet black body. Nicely roasted dark chocolate aroma, mid-sweet. Well made taste profile of earth and chocolate malts. Lingering roasted bitterness to the aftertaste. Fine bodied. Fits the style very well (Shared with Finn, Tromsø 25.04.2016).

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2016
Small brown head. Opaque black body. Delicate milky roasty aroma with chocolatey earthy notes. Sweetish earthy roasty mealy taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish roasty chocolatey fruity aftertaste with mealy earthy notes. Nice, drinkable, harmonic, and full of flavour. (0.33l bottle, from a Clerkenwell store.)

Wonderful aroma of black berries. Black. No head but good carbonation. Low hopping. Nice buzzing mouth feel. Sweetish, black berries, hint of dark chocolate. Nice.

edsspoon (855) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle at home - deep dark black with a very large, foamy light brown head. Lively body. Aroma is lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Very rich. Taste is smokey, vanilla and roasted malts with a creamy finish. Silky smooth body, dry, medium to prickly carbonation.

Ktwse (3825) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, German sausage, chocolate, light coffee. Very classic porter. Taste is rich chocolate and vanilla, sweet, before a roasted malt and dark chocolate bitter finish. Light, roasty body with soft carbonation. A very good example of a classical porter, updated nicely.
