3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the Rake. It pours murky dirty brown with a tiny white head. The nose is salted caramel, earth, leather, coffee, cocoa, earthy roast and smoke. The taste is dry, earthy roast, coffee, toasty, dirt, peppery spice and charred stuff with a pretty dry, charry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Decent porter, but not a looker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330. Pours a murky dark ebony with faintly dark amber edges and a gigantic surging tan head that mousses all over the counter if you’re not careful. A big salty, smoky nose, lots of campfire and sea air. Would have guessed this for a smoked rather than a porter. Delicious though. Creamy light body, soft carb. Campfire and a bit of marine brine on the mid palate, along with bittersweet chocolate and some toasty black bread crusts. Quite nice. Long smoky finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Przyjemny, niskowoltażowy porter. Aromaty palonej kawy, żyta. Lekka kwasowość w smaku. Poza tym znów palona kawa i ciemne pieczywo na podniebieniu. Niezłe, sesyjne piwo, w dobrej, jak na zagranicę, cenie (10,5 za 0.33 w Das Bier)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear mahogony (stored for 2 years) with a big white-grey head that reduces to a layer that stays all the way. No lacing. Aroma of coffe, tobacco and ash. Creamy but watery mouthfeel. Taste of coffebeans, burned toffe and dried fruit. A very nice sweetnes in the aftertaste that stays looong. A well balanced porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Deep brown with creame head. Sweet chocolate and some coffee in aroma. Very pleasant taste - same chocolate, caramel, coffee with medium-high body. But it was bit hazy closer to bottom of bottle, probably yeast.
