Ragnampiza (333) - Rome / Lecce, 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 (82) - 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 (99) - 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 (718) - - 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 (12167) - 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.

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.

ShivanDragon (1427) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2013
Fles 75cl, met dank aan @Countbeer de Secret Sinterklaas. Veel dank! Zwart met minimale fijne bruine kraag Aroma: zoet, chocolade, koffie, caramout, gebrande mouten, licht rokerig Smaken: redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, licht fruitig, stevig moutig, geroosterde en gebrande mouten, chocolade, mocca, lichte koffie, melk chocolade, rookmout, en af en toe komen de tabaksbladeren door de smaak. Vreemd maar past toch wel bij het bier. Medium tot volle body, romig, lage co2, afdronk zoetig, zeer lekker en zacht bier! Zou ik graag nog eens willen drinken.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap @Luppolo 12, Roma 20.7.2013
Dark brown color, small steady brownish head, lace. Milky, toasted nose and some iron. Medium-bodied. At Luppolo they claimed this 8,5% beer - well it was too weak for that. Toasted, caramelly sweetish well not really sweetish but like licorice candy sweet and salty. Some spiceyness. A bit messy.

Garrold (1078) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Tap at Sheffield Tap. Darkest brown. Tight, lasting, beige head. Aroma is light roast malt. As others have said there is a woodiness, too. Some smokiness. Taste is dry, dark fruit. Light, bitter finish. Had to rush this, mores the pity, but definitely one I’d like to try again.

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
On tap at the Sheffield Tap. Black mit a bugt head. Smells of cocoa, sweet, liquorice, malt. Tastes like a milk stout - sweetened malt. Easy drinking.
