durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Rich, nearly black pour with a tan head. Nose of toasted nuts, complex coffee, chocolate, toffee, huge fruits--plums, prunes, raisins. So much going on here. A big, big beer, but not boozy or overwhelming. Palate was lighter than expected for the ABV as well. So tasty.

Tap @ BGM2, Wrocław pitch black, medium, brown foam; chocolate aroma with dark fruits and cherries, roasty; high- sweetness, medium- bitterness; full body, thick feel, average carbonation, very long chocolate sweet finish; Overall: well-made, without flaws just a bit too sweet for me

scirtes (84) - POLAND - MAY 1, 2015
On tap at WFDP ’2015. Black beer with almost brown head. Complex aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, dried plums etc. Very sweet, like chocolate liqueur. Smooth, creamy, full bodied beer. Very interesting, although a bit too sweet for me.

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 30, 2015
Negra, espuma marrom abundante, de longa duração, linda! Aroma de café, chocolate amargo, alcoólica, torradas, adocicada, couro. Paladar de dulçor médio, alcoólica, amargor discreto que intensifica no aftertaste. Corpo médio. Aftertaste intenso de café e álcool, toffe, doce de leite, chega a lembrar sabor defumado. Cerveja complexa e deliciosa!

PorterPounder (5972) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick Save - 12 oz bottle. Deep dark brownish-black pour, light, mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Prune-like fruitiness, a touch of chocolate, some dates and raisins in the aroma. Flavor is decadent with some chocolate goodness, some date-like fruity notes, some strong liqueur notes - cognac comes to mind. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent night cap.

Fukito (890) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 20, 2015
Luscious opaque black with a mocha head. Aroma is cacao with some sherry and licorice. Flavor is rich cocoa with capuchino and a hint of orange marmalaed. Short aftertaste, easy drinking rich palate, alcohol very well conceieved.

dpgjrnhcraftbrew (68) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2015
Almost black dark brown color that eliminates all light that bombards the brew. Mild aroma of molasses, alcohol, sugar, and chocolate. Really complex and well balanced flavor that entices the palate. Incredibly smooth and thick with a creamy mouthfeel that was fantastic. Overall, a sweet porter that was truly a treat.

geophagus (493) - Lubin, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
(on tap at BGM2, sample) Black, untransparent colour. Brown, small, stable head. Syrupy texture, full body, low carbonation. Aroma: Dark malts, dark fruits, berrys, sweet cherries, chocolate. Taste: Sweet, sweet milk chocolate, cocoa. Very long, chocolate finish. Very tasty, mayby a bit too sweet.

drpimento (2403) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2015
Ok, so the aroma is a bit mild, but the taste is so balanced and with a hint of salt to add intrigue - perfect! And the palate, ditto. Fabulous beer!

soolash (172) - POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Beczka, 0,2 l, Wrocław, zaklęte Rewiry. Aromat czekoladowy, wiśnie w czekoladzie, śliwki. Bardzo przyjemny i intensywny. Piana głęboko beżowa, gęsta, bardzo drobna, trwała i wspaniale zdobiąca szkło. Barwa bardzo czarna, niemal czarna. Smak: czekolada, likier czekoladowy z owocami jak w aromacie. Odczucie w ustach: gęste, aksamitne z wyczuwalnym szlachetnym alkoholem. Ogólnie: świetny porter imperialny.
