Almost opaque dark brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is light and fairly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Very tangy dark malts, dry dark chocolate. Tangy dark fruits. Dry finish. Too tangy for me, getting toward mildly sour.

Bottle at home. Very dark caramel-brown pour with a tall tan head with decent retention. Notes of roasted malts, lactose, caramelised sugar, smoke, dark cherries and dark chocolate. Some pine hops also present in the aroma and subtly in the taste. Medium body, high carbonation and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.

Zlotta (2156) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Craft & Draft’. Very dark brownish red to black with a dark beige head. Sweetish, roasty-malty aroma of milk chocolate, sweet coffee, hazelnut and some vanilla. Sweetish, slightly roasty-malty taste of milk chocolate, sweet coffee, hazelnut and some vanilla, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUN 5, 2016
65cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Black colour with beige head. Chocolate, roasted malts and hints of coffee on the nose. The flavour is more on the chocolate side, so good. Nice roasty and bitter notes on the palate. Full body, good carbonation. Well, it tastes like a classic porter but with more intensity and no trace of alcohol. Good job.

650ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pitch black color. Small size, bubbly beige head, stays. Prunes, roast, sweet, very dark chocolate, alcohol in aroma. Roast, nutty, hazelnut skins, chocolate in taste. 9% you must be kidding me!? Lovely and very drinkable. More!
