kerenmk (2001) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Very dark brown with tan head. Vinous, cocoa liquor, roast and a little coffee in the nose, bitter, a little tobacco-ish taste. a little roast too. Smooth, full-bodied, a little syrupy finish with a little wood.

Ragnampiza (218) - ITALY - MAR 22, 2014
750 ml bottle from Birsciop, served in a nonic pint glass. Dark brown, looks black in the glass, with a small, non persistent, light beige head. Fruity and toasted aroma, black berries, wild types of fruits, almost marmelade like, roasted malts and coffee notes. Taste follow suite, with a nice coffee bitterness, slightly less prominent compared to the milky, smooth and velvety sweetness. Tiny bit of astringency. Soft carbonation, light to medium body, oily texture. As much as I tried, I couldn’t really smell nor taste any tobacco notes, but it’s still a very nice porter without a doubt.

TommyFi (73) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2014
Di color marrone scuro con una schiuma fine e pannosa. Odora di tostato, di terra e legno, di affumicato. In bocca si ritrova il gusto del caffè, del cacao e una leggera nota salata. Notevole.

paologalloni (90) - ITALY - FEB 19, 2014
Aromi lievi troppo. Sapori maltosi. Ma non definiti. Si sente il dolce del malti. Un po di cafè e liquirizia . Molto watery

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 15, 2014
Porter degna dei campi elisi. Aroma intenso di caffé con sentori legnosi. Gusto di caffé, con punte dolci che ricordano il toffee, e sentori morbidi di tabacco. Lievissima amaritudine. Corpo denso e cremoso. Un’esperienza estetica che ha del sublime!

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Dark brown, aroma is earthy, choc...nice. Dry chocolate palate, earth, the tobacco shows as a balancing agent before it gets a bit thin.

Gramoit (347) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2013
Taster. Not normally a big Porter fan, however I enjoyed this one. Malt driven, with a hint of tobacco spice on the nose and the tongue. Needed a bigger body.
