ShivanDragon (1769) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
zwart met bruine kraag, kleverig aroma van volle chocolade, stevig moutig, gebrande- en geroosterde mouten.
smaken zijn die van chocolade, koffie, gebr- en geroosterde mouten, matig zoet, matig bitter, toch wat dun van textuur. matige body, vrij dun, glad en zacht
goede gladde zachte maar iets té dunne porter

Tap. Near black with small head. A little bit of alcohol warmth. Pretty generic porter with some chocolate, average or maybe a bit below average.

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Really dreadful looking label and a daft name to boot. Dark brown pour with a meek tan head. Traces of roast, malts, dark fruit and choc in the beak. Similar elements unfurled in the sweetish taste with some hops chipping in. Decent smooth fullish mouthfeel. Actually a very drinkable porter that has plenty of character.

FatPhil (9475) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2014
355ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Pours black, small tight head. Messy mashy grainy aroma. Smooth sweet palate, nice carbonation. Pleasant roast, hint of mocha and cakishness. Nice bitter hop finish, quite gentle, late finish has a gorgeous soft roasty finish. Bit of dark coffee - lovely. Totally covers the 7%. However, it’s a bit weak in some ways. That late finish is the best bit, easily.
