In bottle. Smells like coffee, chocolate, smoke, grass, and bell peppers. Tastes like caramel and coffee with a refreshing slightly bitter finish. A good beer but the grassy smell and the aftertaste are confusing to me.

[ASPETTO] color mogano, impenetrabile; schiuma marrone, media presenza , fine e media persistenza [OLFATTO] buona intensità, con profumi tostati inevidenza, cioccolato e chiaramente caffè, con la sensazione di avere sotto il naso chicchi appena tostati. Qualche nota quasi affumicata trapela unitamente a leggere sensazioni alcoliche [GUSTO] intensa, cioccolatosa con una leggera punta dolciastra che lascia poi spazio a sapori di caffè, però non così intensi come si lasciava intendere nell’aroma; si aggiunge una tocco acidulo, forse dovuto al lattosio aggiunto, simile a quella tipica del cioccolato nero ad alto elevato % di cacao. Finale che vira verso toni amarognoli e torrefatti con un retrogusto piuttosto lungo [TEXTURE] corpo medio, morbida e vellutata al palato con una sensazione finale sulel labbra quasi oleosa, carbonazione contenuta e alcohol percettibile. [COMMENTO FINALE] una porter piuttosto strong, se non nell’alcolicità, almeno nei caratteri piuttosto marcati e nella cosistenza in bocca. la vedo vicina al concetto di imperial stout: robusta, intensa nelle sue note tipiche di cioccolato e caffè, fornendo effettivamente una sensazione caffettosa più marcata del normale. il tocco acidulo non stona e la bevuta risulta piuttosto fluida.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
Sludgey medium brown pour, relatively pale for a beer whose aromatic rang mostly focuses on roast. Coffee beans, smooth, dry, gently powdery dominate the landscape in which a soft toastiness bears limited sweetness to it, but ventures into roasted nuts and subdued caramel nuances. Little fruitiness involved here, we’re remaining focused on cereals and various degrees of roastiness. Fairly tasty in the genre, having a smooth creaminess that may remind of a chocolate milk shake with a vanilla twist - yet again, the roast and engaging carbonation attenuate any sweet notions nicely, making for a very drinkable dessert if you will. The alcohol is nowhere to be found despite the mouthfeel letting one expect a stronger brew. Round and filling texture without the frequent Haandbryggeriet extravagant carbonation. Good stuff, not really out of the beaten path, but feeling unique in the coimbination of little off-road detours it takes to go there.

LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
50 cl bottle from Eggedal Borgerstue. Pours black with a one finger brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted, coffee notes, dark chocolate and dark fruity notes. The taste is rather sweet, low bitterness, light sourness. The finish has an long lasting espresso bitterness. Quite special porter this one, but very complex and nice.

SlackerMads (2866) - DENMARK - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle batch 513. Black with a thick nicely lacing khaki head. Aroma is roasted dark malt, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, bubblegum. Taste is medium+ sweet with some light roasted bitterness, medium+ body. Oily texture, average carbonation. Long finish with roasted malt and coffee. Dominated by coffee of course, but still a very nice porter overall.
