Piwo czarne z lekkimi refleksami z obfita bezowa piana zostawiajaca ladny lacing na szkle. W aromacie mleczna czekolada, palone slody, i kakao. W smaku kawowa goryczka z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Bardzo gladkie i kremowe, polpelne cialo i wszystko swietnie ulozone. Naprawde solidny porter.

330ml bottle (Ales by Mail)
Lovely rich roast aroma, lovely and spicy, some zingy bitter hops there, but also a milky softness too. Almost black nice tight tan head, fairly persistent. Lovely smooth rich palate, pleasant carbonation, nicely low. Maybe a bit of a butteriness to it. Taste is a great roast again, but a bit dusty, just a hint of ash in the finish. Pleasant level of sweetness, no sugariness or stickiness, just a natural chocolate malt sweetness. Finish dry, a bit of old dry bittering hops. Leaves you wanting to take another sip, would be very easy to drink this too quickly. Really solid stout porter.

olio (9288) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 18.01.2017.
Pours truly pitch black color with a small beige head. Very nice roast on the nose, dark malts, cocoa, subtle licorice, mild hops and some coffee. Roasted malts, slightly burnt even, licorice and cocoa on the flavor, coffee bitterness as well as some dark chocolate. Full-bodied, slightly creamy mouth feel, lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Balance couldn’t be any better. Refined and all-round excellent Porter, surely one of the best I’ve had in a long time.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks troubles. Black with a bit of tan head. Aroma of roast, coffee, dark chcoolate, nuts. Rather dry flavor, slightly sweetish, roasty, with coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, nuts, and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Good.

sebletitje (9313) - 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 (11120) - 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).
