veceo (930) - CROATIA - NOV 21, 2015
Very dark brown color with reddish hue, giant brownish head but almost instantly disappeared. Aroma is heavy on roastiness, coffee, some smokey touches, lots of maltiness. Taste is all aroma suggested it would be. Pretty straight forward but damn enjoyable nevertheless. Medium body, soft carbonation.

MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Sample @ Brewpub. Pours a hazy darker brown, blackish beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is toasty, slightly smoke, roast and a hint of coffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, loads of cookie maltness in there, very toasted again and has a faint, bittersweet aftertaste. Soft carbonation, well balanced and just a decent porter.

ippopotamo36 (995) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 28, 2015
0,33 bottle purchased at The Hoppy imp. in Greece, aged and consumed in Kosovo. Bottled 14/10/2013 (2 years old). Pours dark chestnut skin color, initial brownish cap lowering fast and leaving a decent gassy lacing. Nose: coffee smoothie, silky coffee very balanced, some grassy notes in the background. Mouth: soft carbonation (aging helped in this I think), watery with a smooth coffee character but easy, medium low body. The end is bitter but not that aggressive, due to the aging became more peppery han grassy which I like. Surprisingly tasty this one.

dogbomb (1117) - ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle. Deep dark brown with a thin tan halo head. Nose is chocolate powder, earth. Taste is surprsingly unchocolatey, giving some red fruits... but then there’s a little chocolate tease in the finish. Give it a bit of play, and you can pull some chocolate berries too. A touch of banana too perhaps. Tasty!

Klassisches Porter mit einer schokoladigen Note, etwas an Kaffee, dazu ein bisschen Schwere, Vanille und ein wenig Rosinen. Nette Sache.
