COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

soolash (166) - 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 (679) - 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.

Estebanik (46) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 12, 2015
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.

alteregoo (182) - POLAND - APR 12, 2015
BGM2 z kranu za 16zl 0,2l. W aromacie i w smaku dojrzałe czarne wisnie w czekoladzie, kawa, palonoe slody, delikatne sliwki wegierki. W odczuciu bogate i roznorodne, tresciwe, polskodkie - taki "podkrecony" porter baltycki.

jookos (3105) - FINLAND - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. Black, nice frothy tan head. Chocolate dry soft sweet ashy, dark berry nose. Quite malty, definitely more porter- like than RISsy. Some ethanol shining through though. Blackberries, some blueberries too, quite alive, mashed fruits really. Malty dustyness. Med full bodied, smooth slick. A bit boozy, but not too disturbingly. Easy drink nontheless, soft bittered, nicely sweet, yummy. A quickly dissapating ’sipper’.

Franckg (289) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Smell of black chocolate and roasted malt. Hint of alcohol In mouth it’s very tasteful. Cocoa, anise and expresso. Aromas of dark berries give a light sour side. High abv is well-hidden. Medium/high roundness. Low carbonation. Bitterness is quite long and dominated by anise. Very good overall. Great complexity and well balanced.

Swaroga (1630) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Not sure if it’s a Stout or a Porter. Thick and with a alcohol boost. Chocolate, toffee, banana, orange peel, cheesecake are the dominating aromas. Mouthfeel is thick like a cream. It has a fine fresh roasted coffee flavor to it. It’s also a bit too cloying sweet and difficult to drink.

CraftBeerNick (1120) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Draft at Munich Tap House, 23rd March 15. This smells ok, a little boozy, however the taste is rough, overly sweet, sickly medicinal mess. Not much character to it and overtly strong ABV. Over rated, and a poor example of a porter

callmemickey (3346) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Dark brown-black body, medium to thin tan head, sparse lacing. Dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, a little licorice, light roast, and a shit ton of syrupy booze. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation, thick finish, sweet throughout.
