Bottle. Nice brown head, but didn’t last too much. Strong (greek!) coffee and smoke aroma. Same at the powerful taste. Like the long lasting bitter finish.

jinroh (942) - ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2016
Bottle from European Secret Santa, thanks rouhlas! Dark as a night. Some beige foam fighting against leaving the party. Aroma displays roast, feels a bit sour and even some berry juice is giving extra character. Smoky and slight peat. Taste is sweetish sour at first. Sourness is only slight, so I don’t completely understand if it is as it should be or is it gone off a bit. Velvety but sour dry mouthfeel with some prickly hop character in the background. Definitely a good beer, well done.

ciocanelu (603) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 10, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Really dark pour with mocha head that goes away quickly. Aroma has dark, roasted malts and also some smoked meat. Taste follows with same notes, a bit on the sweet side and not too heavy on the smoke. Body is quite heavy and well carbonated. Overall it’s balanced and easy to drink smoked porter.

dnicolaescu (1519) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 25, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. Big chocolate and coffee in the aroma - like a baby impy. Some dried fruit and malts too. The taste is simple, dryer, but with notes of chocolate and coffee too, as well as some woody spiciness. Light bitterness and ashes in the finish. Would bine nice to have a less carbonates and smoother body. Still, very good.

bytemesis (5580) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to rouhlas! Pours clear black, small tan head, dissipates to a ring with decent lacing. Aroma is quite roasty with a lot of coffee notes, some burned notes as well. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, burned coffee, deep deep roasted malts, some smokiness, almost meaty in character. Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Burned aftertaste.
