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.

Scrumpy369 (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
On tap at eleszto importer. Pitch black colour small brown head disappears almost instantly. Nose is dried fruits with some soysuce in the background. Taste is medium high sweetness wih strong dried fruits and molasses. Almost too geil. Full creamy mouthfeel, well hidden alcohol. A little bit more bitterness could balace it out better imo.

Pours pitch black almost no foam. No nose! In mouth good chocolate and coffee, a touch (tiny) of licorice and dried black plums. Great beer, well balanced, easy drinking, very mild sweetness.

Intensive aroma with melanoidines, smoked plum, coffee, cocoa cake, great baltic porter notes. Mouthfeel is thick, full and sweet but this sweetness increases the experience of beer being full bodied. An extremely enjoyable beer with no hints of alcohol, complex and very well drinkable. One of best porters I have ever drunk

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
