4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice very dark brown almost black beer with about 3 fingers of head, brown sugar in color in a tulip glass. Aroma had a nice light aroma to it with some sweet chocolate followed by a perfect hop aroma, from the west coast with that hint of pineapple.!! Taste is pure sweet chocolate up front followed by just a little heat of the alcohol, not at all bad for a 9.2 abv. I think the abv kills off most of the IBUs as I canít taste much of the hop that has been added to this beer but at the same time the hops hides most of this 9+abv. Mouthfeel has a bit much carbonation but as it sits it improves much in this regard. This is a porter that will be nice and sweet in about 3 years out of the cellar...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a massive head, which is brown, later off-white. Very strong roasted aroma, strong coffee and caramel smell. Taste is very full, slightly roasted at first, developing through sweet fullness to a slightly bitter, hoppy finish, leaving you with an oak-like, roasted finish. A beer for hour tastebuds, but very heavy.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is robust, earthy hops, roasted malt, coffee, very robust. Appearance is dark dark brown, almost black, light brown head, poured pretty thick. Taste is super roasty, robust malt, earthy hops, just very rich, like Mikkeller Black only not over-the-top, just right. Mouthfeel is heavy body, light carbonation, earthy hop and robust roasted malt aftertaste. Overall, I didnít expect it to be this good. I am sorry I underestimated it.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Piękna, drobna, zbita, beżowa piana. Dość wysoka. Opadające, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat czekoladek z alkoholem, karmelowy, palony. Przyjemny, ale alkohol wychodzi trochę za bardzo. Dosc gęsty w odczuciu, ale też dość wysoko nasycony. Niestety, w smaku dalej odczuwalnie alkoholowy, po kilku łykach język dretwieje i odmawia wspůłpracy. Piwo z dużym potencjałem, niestety zabitym przez mocne akcenty spirytusowe.

Bottle 355ml. Deep black with a lushly beige head. Lovely aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is mildly bittersweet at first but develops into a beautifully balanced coffee like bitterness. Great!
