Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana opada dosc szybko, ale jest, bezowa i drobna. Ladnie zdobi szklo. Aromat gesty, czekoladowy, wrecz risowy. Dosc szybko sie jednak rozwiewa. W smaku palone, co ciekawe z nutami gumy balonowej, moze lesnych owocow. Palony, dlugi aftertaste.

smroush (137) - Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Roasted aromas, quite a bit of chocolate, a bit sweet - just nicely so. Color is black, with a fairly small tan head. Taste is a bit sweet with a nice general bitterness. Full bodied; oily/creamy texture; a long finish, with roasted coffee and chocolate. Overall this is a quite good beer. Good complexity, with roasted coffee, chocolate and some sweetness that works well, providing some balance.

huineman (423) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours darkest brown. Rocky moka head. Aroma is intense: coffe, lemon peel, rucola, beef jerky, caramel, black olive, even squid ink. Dense, fresh and quite long, with an aftertaste that reminds of coffee beans.

Bottle. Pitch black with big, light brown, densed head. Average head retention, good lacing. Strong roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Taste is medium bitter, mainly dark chocolate in the aroma, also roasted dark coffee and some earthy and caramel notes. Medium to full body, thick texture soft carbonation Long, roasty, semi bitter finish. In general good raw porter with strong bitter notes. Enjoy.

An almost black beer with a coffe aroma. It’s too roasty for me and uneasy to drink. The end is too long as well. Not for everybody

SinH4 (1132) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 20, 2015
Dark brown color with beige head, good lacing. Smell is dark coffee, dark chocolate. A bit chalky. Taste is the same, really really dry with hints of coffee, chalk and chocolate. I like dry, but this is too dry for a porter. Feels like powder in your mouth. Not easy to drink.
