MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2013
(bottle, as Black Isle Organic Porter, 4.6% abv) Dark brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Slightly tarry roast-malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate, mocha and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Moderately roast-bitter and delicately sour flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Quite dry roasty malt character with notes of dark chocolate and coffee; dry and moderately roast-bitter finish with notes of coffee and a tinge of berries. Decent Porter. 11.VIII.13

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a unclear dark brown / blackish colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of bittersweet chocolate and croissant. Taste of bitter unsweetened espresso, strong coffee, nuts and malt. Hints of brown sugar. Finishes quite dry and bitter but definitely tasty and nice.

MichaelAwesome (6471) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
Not a bad one. Starting off a bit sourish with some coffee in the back. Middle is bit watery. Ends with roasted malt and roasted nuts. Definitely one of the better beers in the world. Could be a bit heavier with some more depth.

Imaena (2231) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - AUG 11, 2013
England: South Littleton. This is a lack luster porter that feels thin and lacking in the flavour dept.

Foffern (1695) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is deep and dark reddish brown colour with a medium light beige head. Roasted aroma with nuts, coffee, wood, roasted almonds and leather. The flavour follows with a nice roasted touch, but is also sweet with some caramel. Has a slick and light mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and easy-drinking porter.
