urobach (23) - Szczecin, POLAND - APR 1, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with brown head. Aroma of reisins and dark chocolate. Tastes sweet, a little bit sour. Body is way to light. At least for a beer drinker that’s used to Polish Baltic Porters. Carbonation is low, which is good. Drinkable, but leaves unsatisfied.

What he said…a decent enough porter but not outstanding. I haven’t added enough characters for my rating so you could say - like the beer - it lacks character(s).

Karol (599) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 20, 2014
Tapped at Hostinec Richtar Jakub in Bratislava/Slovakia. First of all I love plums, a plum marmalade, a plum pie. Secondly I love roasted malt and coffee and espresso. Hence this beer has it all! Aroma, taste, color, finish of plums and roasted malt with a dry dark chocolate finish and plums. Overall a really delicious porter.

mt_hall (102) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled. Dark brown/black colour with a medium-sized, but short-lived light brown head. Coffee, chocolate, and vanilla on the nose. Very smooth in the mouth, with just a touch of acidity to balance. A sweet start, then smoky coffee and cream flavours and a dry finish. Very good.
