Biroholik (689) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 26, 2016
On Tap @ Bay Area Craft Beer Festival, Martinez, California (16.04.2016)
Gęsty, czarny, nieprzejrzysty trunek. Bardzo dobra kremowa piana. Do samego końca pozostaje na szkle. Bardzo solidna paloność. Akcenty kawy i gęstej mlecznej, a potem gorzkiej czekolady. Umiarkowana goryczka, czysty gładki czekoladowo-palony finisz.

bnokk (416) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2016
APPEARANCE- Looks like it is dark enough to have come from a grave. Beauty nougat colored head too. NOSE- Smells slightly chocolaty and slightly roasty. Not overwhelming. FLAVOR- thin body, but amazing depth. The sip evolves from front to back starting with nit of bitterness and ending with the slightest chocolate sweetness. NOTES- Very solid porter. Bordering on stout.

AtronSeige (1148) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 5, 2016
Aroma: Medium roasty, grape, Medium-light coffee. Light lactic. Appearance: Clear, very dark body with red highlights. Massive light-brown head, large bubbles, rocky. Good retention. Flavour: Medium high roast, bitterness. Medium coffee, grape. Light lactic. Dry finish with lingering roast. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation. Medium warming. Overall: Not sure if the lactic is an infection or on purpose. "Light warming" is an understatement. Otherwise the beer is nice. 660 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows some nutty, bready and toast malt. A fair bit of milk chocolate too. Flavours include more nutty malt and chocolate, reminiscent of Ferrero Rocher. A little sweet bready malt is present too followed by a subtle roasty bitterness.

Bulk_Carrier (3408) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 15, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one finger off white to tan foamy head that dissipated ever so slowly. Clingy semi-foamy lacing rings around the glass. The smell takes on roasty cocoa and coffee beans. Light caramel tones slide in underneath. The taste is roasty and sweet through a nice combination of the cocoa and coffee. Bitter and sweet with a nice robust figure of warmth laying down on my tongue in the aftertaste. Quick roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice carbonation about it. Roastiness kicks in on the feel making it slightly dry. Overall, I’d say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.
