HammerTroll (335) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2014 Almost totally black color, nice brown head. Herbal nose. Strong herbs bitter kick at first (but not too bitter), rich taste that transform from bitter to long dark chocolate and little bit of coffee finish. Very good.

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle: Presumably clear, dark amber coloured with ruby spots, very stable creamy off-White to tanned head, vanilla, toasted malt, caramel and traces of port-wine in the nose plus a dash of bitter chocolate; moderate to solid bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, unfortunately not that smooth; fruity and chocolatey finish with a drier toasty aftertaste. Superb stuff...

Ganska trevlig porter. Mörk som natten med en fin skumkrona. Den har dock en konstig smak av päron. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
