rami_pl (1370) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 19, 2016
butelka, warka do 28/04/2016 (czyli w polowie okresu). Ladne, bardzociemnobrazowe z fajna piana ladnie brudzaca szklo. aromaty palone, zbozowe, ciemnej czekolady, kakao, likieru wisniowego. w ustach popiolowe, dosc pelne, raczej wytrawne, leciutko kwaskowate, nisko+ wysycone, zniewysoka goryczka i dlugimi posmakami glownie gorzkoczekolado-palono-zbozowymi. tego "stronger hop character" nie poczulem... Zarowno aromaty, smaki jak i posmaki bardzo intensywne. Klasa.

koshack (1134) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Ciemno brunatne, prawie czarne. Piana drobna, obfita, beżowa. W aromacie wyraźne nuty palone. Trochę nut ziołowych. Całość bardzo przyjemna. Trochę pachnie jak Black IPA. W smaku kwaskowate, palone. Czekolada, trochę słodyczy, ale na bardzo niskim poziomie. Bardzo dobre piwo, ale nie do końca smakuje jak porter. Bardziej idzie w stronę stouta. Niskie wysycenie.

rafax (47) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown appearance with nice, big, almost brown, but short head. Aroma of coffee, first, then chocolate, licorice and roasted malts. Very pleasant medium bitterness. Body rather light to medium, light watery mouth feel. Good porter, but knowing other BBN’s stuff was expecting sth even better.

johndoughty (4731) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Black with a small head. Some hops surface straight away and there is a trace of chocolate. Not a lot of alcohol is present which is surprising considering its relatively high strength. A pleasant beer but compared with some of the others from this brewery it does not stand out. Which probably reflects how high they have set the bar.
