COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

Ładna, ciemna barwa, aromat słaby, ciężko wyczuwalny, w smaku jak na porter kompletnie brak ciała, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Liczyłem na więcej, może ze względu na ładną etykietę i kapsel firmowy ale jak się okazało nie oceniaj piwa po etykiecie.

Bottle at home. It has weak notes of all of the tastes that you’d expect -- coffee, chocolate, toasted grain -- and a surprisingly clean, mildly thin mouthfeel. Interesting to try, perfectly pleasant.

SanfordBrewer (1500) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2016
opaque mahogany with very thin beige head. medium-full body with high carbonation which harshens the acrid burnt character.

aroma: charred malt/grain, roasted acidity, subtle cacao, sweet mocha, leafy herbal hops, licorice.

taste: leafy hops, char, acrid character from roasted grains and coffee. Rather one-dimensional.

No amber, brown, or crystal malts coming through, so this is much more stout-like than porter-like.

Hopmaestro (1279) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2016
Aroma is milder roasted malts with some dark choco’s and coffee. Taste follows the same formula. Very clean and straight forward porter with a dry sensation. Almost too clean.

rafael52 (928) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Kolor: ciemnobrunatny, klarowny.
Piana: obfita, drobnopcherzykowa, trwała.
Zapach: sporo aromatów słodowych, opiekanych, melanoidynowych, ciemnych owoców, kawy, czekolady, kakao.
Smak: średnia pełnia, gładkie, dokładnie to co w aromacie, lekka słodycz dobrze współgrająca z goryczką o kawowo, kakaowym charakterze.
Wysycenie: śrdnie.

ben4321 (5688) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the Taphaus. Dark brown color with a thick, creamy head and fairly heavy lacing. Roasted and burnt coffee, toasted caramel, and some licorice on the aroma. Tastes fairly strongly malty and fairly heavy bitter as well. Finishes with a bit of a peat type flavor. Soft feel and a long, fairly dry close. Pretty interesting stuff with a ton going on.

dark brown, nice color, head. Quite bitter. I would like it a little bit sweeter, but it’s fine!
