Smooth, dark, and very, very drinkable. Not often I give 10/10 but this perfect porter deserves all the praise it gets. - Recommended

Idiosynkrasie (3815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
330ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma has notes of chocolate and blueberries, a herbal touch. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, chocolately with notes of blueberries and belonging shrubs; long lasting finish adds some hop bitterness. Simple (in the sense emphasising a rigid scope of flavours) but extremely tasty.

Garrold (1336) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Very dark brown. Thin, sticky, tan head. Dried, vine fruit. Coffee grinds. Light cocoa. Taste is full, chewy, dark chocolate sweet. Roast dryness on top. Palate is thick, chewy, but manages some airy lightness. Finishes long, roast bitter. Just a little too bitter for me, but nevertheless this is a lovely beer.

Benzai (8228) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Sampled from draught. Opaque black color, small light brown head. Smell and taste malts, a slight sweet hint, lightly a touch of roast, light to moderately bitter. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

Ferris (4211) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Draft - Dark roast and bitter chocolate, with a slight bitter/sourness. Jet black with a decent brown head. Tastes as it smells, no bells or whistles. Pretty straight forward.
