Bottle - thanks, J! Pours nearly black, minimal head. Roast, chocolate and coffee aroma with a little cardboard thrown in. Taste: moderate sweetness, light roast bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, texture is slick but a little thin. Overall: I’m surprised they call this a porter, but to each his own, especially when it comes to arbitrary classification boundaries.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
So after almost two years since I have tasted it on tap at Csakajósör, finally ran into a bottle of this beer at the same bar too. Pours black with a near red foam, this beer mesmerises me with heavy roasted chocolate, almond and surprisingly a hint of coconut aromas. Body is heavy as well, kinda espresso-like; it lefts you with a very dry dance of flavours derived from the roasted malts and hops. A true classic obviously, and according to the head of Csakajósör, new kegs are going to arrive soon.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a short tan head. Aroma of rich roasted espresso, smoke, and licorice. The flavor features expected dark chocolate and espresso flavors upfront but nearly shares the stage with the anise and light floral hops that are on the finish. Medium bodied. This is a world class porter.
