Bottle, from Lidl. Deep red brown, thin but sustained off white head and low condition. Pleasantly woody nose with hints of vanilla and bitter sweet chocolate, quite metallic in the mouth with a little sweet vanilla and chocolate breaking through, with a roasted barley bitterness developing as it warms, along with a slight liquorice note, finish is quite dry and bitter with some lingering roast barley notes

Aragh (227) - POLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Kolor brązowy, pod światło przebija na pomarańczowo. Piany praktycznie nie ma, ale jakieś resztki nawet oblepiają szkło. Zapach mało intensywny, ale są nuty wanilii, czekolady, lasu i chmieli. W smaku rzeczywiście waniliowo, jest też czekolada i minimalna wędzoność, goryczka niska palona, z wanilią utrzymującą się w tle wychodzi całkiem ciekawie. Nieszczególnie skomplikowane ale dobre.

GothGargoyle (2354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Dark brown/black with a nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, caramel. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lightly sweet on the palate with a subtle hint of balancing bitterness, and a slightly thin finish. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, lightly roasted malts. Not bad

w_adwersarz (435) - Cracow, POLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Piana w miarę obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, prawie jak azot, zwarta, w miarę długo się utrzymuje, kremowa na powierzchni. Barwa brązowa, opalizująca, ładnie pracuje, prześwity w kolorze coś pomiędzy mocną herbatą a cocacolą. Aromat trochę palony, waniliowy, słodki jakby melanoidynowy, odrobina gorzkiej czekolady. W smaku podobnie, palony, słodki waniliowy, trochę czekolady gorzkiej. Wysycenie średnie, wytrawne, dość gładko wchodzi, goryczka niewielka z waniliowym finiszem.

Bottle - strong vanilla aroma. Clear dark red/brown with small beige head. Ok on tongue - in mouth. No carbonation. Good chocolate - vanilla taste - very nice porter.
