Una vera Porter, le storiche birre scure dei facchini londinesi.

Caratterizzata da sentori e gusti di caffé e liquirizia, con note tostate e affumicate che, a seconda delle interpretazioni, possono essere da moderate a intense. In questa versione tradizionale, al palato morbido si coniuga un intenso profumo di luppolo e note di alcool.

É una birra infaticabile che si abbina a formaggi robusti, piatti tradizionali tipo polenta integrale, carni o pesce al forno e naturalmente alle ostriche.

Da gustarsi ballando fino allo sfinimento al ritmo di James Brown.

czar (7890) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
sample at mondial de la bière, mtl. unclear very dark brown with a small light beige cap offering some retention and lacing. strong hazelnut coffee, tia maria *TM, burnt caramel and berries, raisins and figs, floral tingling eau-de-vie alcohol - grappa-like; dust, spices. moderately low carbonation, medium body - oily; boozy spicy finish. like some boozy raisin and pecan tartelettes. very nice but nothing funky, although it may be, should you consider disco music funky.

Ambro206 (360) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2016
Una Porter con tutti i crismi. Scura con cappello di schiuma nella media. Sentori principali di caffè e cioccolato con un pizzico di spezia dal luppolo che bilancia tutta la bevuta. Corpo medio e carbonatazione lieve rendono la birra abbastanza piacevole e mai invadente.

Silvan7 (1106) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 29, 2015
On tap @ birre di natale sotto la torre (vigevano). Marrone velata, con schiuma beige fine e mediamente persistente. Aroma fine, di cacao, frutta secca(nocciola), leggermente caramellato ed erbaceo da luppolo. Al gusto ritrovo la tostatura e la dolcezza maltata con un retrolfattivo che ricorda la liquirizia.acidità appena accennata. Finale erbaceo, amaro da luppolo. Corposa, poco carbonata, piuttosto morbida, lievemente astringente.Poco calda. Equilibrata

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
330 ml bottle from Hop Corner. Very dark brown, hard to see through, with a tiny and bubbly light brown head which dissipated very quickly. Intense and spot-on aroma, definitely sweet smelling, with notes of milk chocolate, quality espresso coffee, very roasted and almost smoky. A hint of vanilla and cinnamon as well. Nice velvety mouthfeel. Rich and full but very drinkable and quaffable at the same time. Almost no warming at all, the alchool is extremely well hidden. Decent coffee bitterness, slightly dry, lingering aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Very good porter.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Draft sample @ Birra Expo’14 Piacenza. Brune foncée, col café au lait. Arôme malté moyen sur un agréable caramel chocolaté et légèrement bready. Houblonné modérée voire discret sur un fruité léger. Palais est malté, noté grillée et une pointe de réglisse. Légère et complexe avec une bonne épaisseur de grains rappelant l’avoine. Palais mitigé avec un penchant sur le malté légèrement amer et une fin de bouche gardant se léger côté réglisse. Le houblon arrive en retrait et ajoute une complexité fleuri et fruité et une pointe d’amertume.

Theydon_Bois (17245) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle at home, from BOE, 08/12/13. Black with a good sized tan head that dissipates to a thin covering and finally thins to a swirl. Nose is light roast, metallic nip, light cocoa powder, earthy, chocolate biscuit crumble. Taste comprises roast malt, milk chocolate, cookies and cream, light mineral tang, earthy biscuit base. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry roasty finale. Decent enough porter.
