3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer in the glass is very dark brown, almost black, with a fine creamy head. It smells strongly coffee, with plenty of roasted malt, peat, toffee and chocolate. Starts with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, lots aromas of roasted coffee, with some caramel in the background, overall very sweet. The middle part shows a lot of burnt malts, combined with sweet chocolate and coffee. In the finish properly roasted malty, again with burnt malts and a slight berry-hoppy note. Awesome Porter!

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.

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)

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.

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.

Dark brown with huge foam, beige and hurried. Scents of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and ashes. The mouth is in the same way, roasted, rather round, with bitter chocolate flavours and a hint of toffy. It is dry but supple, point of acidity with notes of coffee, burned and its bitterness.
