Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

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.

I love porters. this is pretty good. it has a smooth start. the finish I am not sure about. it’s got a bit of alcohol sting.

Fukito (886) - 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.

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.

(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.

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.

KoNrRiI (683) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
0.2 from a tap. Black in color with a small, brown head. Aroma seems quite bitter, has floral notes in it, obvious malts, a whole lot of fruits (some fermented), some prunes, and advocaat. Taste is also fruity, sweet’n’sour, malts are more delicate, syrup, and again some advocaat though this time more of a cognac than egg. Medium body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is fruity, alcoholic, and features fermented apples. Overall not a bad beer but certainly not very drinkable.

From tap in Torst, NYC. Perfect look, perfect mouth feel. Beer is very thick, very dense. Really awesome.

Spokojnie można to piwo umieścić w top 3 najlepszych piw jakie piłem w swoim całym życiu:) Mega intensywny aromat śliwek, wiśni, migdałów. Dość słodkie. W smaku alkohol zupełnie niewyczuwalny ( A ma 11.5%!). Arcydzieło piwowarstwa.
