COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 17th century Britain beer was the drink of the common man. Wine was for the wealthy, tea was for the weak and water was usually quite poisonous. Men, women and children drank beer morning, noon and night. The most popular type of beer was porter because of its modest price and its nutritional value. One of the most popular porter brewers, and often incorrectly credited with the invention of the beer, was Ralph Harwood. This beer is inspired by the brown porter made at the time. TASTING NOTES Enters the glass with a deep mahogany with a small tan head. The nose quickly fills toffee and sweet chocolate. Smooth in flavour and with a big mouth feel without significant bitterness from the hops. Ends full, creamy and lush. FOOD PAIRING Should be paired with food as it could have been served at Harwoods time. A steak- and kidney pie should work well or for the slightly more modern touch serve it with a porter house steak smothered in a wild mushroom and oyster gravy.

Savagesteeler (48) - Warszaw, POLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Aromat, głównie toffi, lekkie nuty czekoladowo rumowe. Barwa czarna, klarowna, piękna beżowa obfita piana. W smaku od razu uderza moc tego piwa, alkoholowe, ale dobrze wkomponowane w całość, potem dosc spora goryczka, paloność. W tle uwydatniają sie nuty rumowe. Podsumowujać jest to świetne piwo, bardzo treściwe, pełne, złożone. Do końca pozostawia z takimi samymi wrażeniami jak po pierwszyn łyku, zdecydowanie polecam

Pinball (11365) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2015
Tap at fermentoren pith dark smooth white head. Aroma is roasted malty with bitter malty notes . also licorice. Flavor is roasted malts and a little wood and licorice. Thick mouthful and very complex , notes of figs and Italian chocolate ice cream. It reminds me flavor wise of a slightly less brutal version of nørrebro seven which is one of my all time favorites.

alteregoo (311) - POLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Piana drobna, gdzieniegdzie pojedynczy większy pęcherzyk, kremowa, ładnie oblepia szkło, barwa ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat wypełniony przede wszystkim czekoladą, kakao, kawą zbożową i wydaje mi się że czuć laktozę, również w smaku. Jest lekka słodycz o czekoladowym profilu, akcenty likieru kawowego, prażonego ziarna, lekka paloność i popielniczka w posmaku. Goryczka średnia, chmielowo-alkoholowa, przyjemna, fajnie balansująca mleczną czekoladę. W odczuciu piwo dość pełne, treściwe, z moją ulubioną ziemisto-popiołową strukturą osadzającą się na języku i dodającą "gęstości". Nagazowanie średnie. Świetny deserowy porter, bardzo dobrze zbalansowany, intensywny, wyrazisty, mimo swoich 19° Plato wydaje się, jakby miał ze dwadzieścia parę. Pomimo początkowej czekoladowej słodyczy szybko do głosu dochodzi goryczka, typowo brytyjska, szorstka i ten tytoniowy aftertease... Alkohol dobrze ułożony, daje o sobie znać tam, gdzie należy - rozgrzewanie w przełyku i wzmocnienie goryczki, natomiast nie czuć go w smaku.

Holmen1 (3536) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 21, 2015
Fra fat på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: Brunsvart med fint beige skum som varer. Kaffe, sjokolade og solbær i en lett syrlig, superdejlig aroma. Naturlig nok de samme elementer i smaken, men med litt mer sødme. En delikat bitterhet både i smak og ettersmak gjør dette ølet til balansekunst verdig en linedanser. Dette ble den store fatølkvelden!

On tap at Cardinal. Pours almost pitch black with a small tanned head. Aroma of weak roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Taste is smooth, medium sweet roasted malts and chocolate, a pleasant beverage indeed.
