MMJL (324) - Gliwice, POLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Zapach z butelki to intensywna czekolada ale też i całkiem sporo chmielu. Piwo nalewa się z piękną, drobną bujną, brązową i dosyć trwałą pianą. W barwie jest prawie czarne, całkowicie nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie ze szkła głównie czekoladowe, z lekkimi ciemnymi owocami i nutami wanilii oraz delikatnego ziołowego chmielu. W smaku wyraźna jest paloność i kawa, ale nie jest ona ostra ani długa, piwo jest dosyć słodkie z wyraźnymi ciemnymi owocami - głównie suszonymi czy nawet wędzonymi śliwkami. Pojawiają się nuty drzewne - aż trudno uwierzyć, że to piwo nie było leżakowane w beczce. Nisko wysycone, gęste, gładkie, pełne w odczuciu. Z intensywną, uderzającą głównie w posmaku paloną i tytoniową od chmielu goryczką. Alkohol leciutko grzeje w przełyk, ale jest to miłe uczucie.

Saeglopur (1436) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 20, 2015
355 ml bottled 5.14.15, from Mikkeller Webshop.
Black body, with a quite small, fluffy, coffee colored head.
Aroma of chocolate, nuts, cocoa, coffee, earth, liquorice, dark and dried fruits.
Tastes of cocoa, coffee, liquorice, chocolate, tobacco, dark fruits, quite a lot of citric and piney hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, dry, with coffee, tobacco, liquorice, cocoa, piney hop notes, subtle alcohol.

Very tasty. Nice balance of strong roasty and moderate sweet notes, with a lot of hops from the background and a pleasantly dry finish. Drinks quite easy for the ABV however. Not my absolute favourite Porter, but an excellent style example nonetheless.

Porter sind schon eine besondere Sache. Diese hier bildet keine Ausnahme, auch wenn es durchaus akzeptabel war. Mit Kaffee, etwas Schoko, einigen Fruchtnoten, dazu eine nette Alkoholtiefe. Kann man trinken.

TheJester (2303) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
355 mL bottle. Pours stout brown with a small, light brown head. Mild roast and chocolate milk in the nose. The roast is relatively mild in the flavour as well. Nice chocolate, though, and a hint of booze, which works, because of the solid body. And oatmealy smooth. Nice beer.

다크호스 브루잉 - 리절브 스페셜 블랙에일 7.5% ABV 코코아, 커피, 비터 초컬릿 등의 쌉쌀한 맛에 치중한 블랙 에일.이것도 그렇고 원 오트밀스타우&# 그렇고 비교적 높은 도수임에도 마시기는 매우 편하다 이 제품도 그렇고 어제 올린 것도 그렇고 이렇듯 허접한로고에 도수에 비해 밍밍한 느낌의 맥주들이 레이트 비어에서 98, 99점에 링크 되다니 조금 미스테리하기&# 하다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

BREWMUSKCLES (2473) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2015
big body and dark malt and cocoa taste that seems a bit dry acrid and with licorice. the foundation is superb and you can do anything with it. intense and satisfying you can fall over yourself describing how they do stout and porter right from the get go.
