Rami Rami is drinking an Aphotic Imperial Porter by High Water Brewing at Czeska Baszta intensywny, kawowy, palony, troche w tle za tym ciemne owoce(wisnie), alkohol (cherry?), rodzynki, wanilia, czekolada, slodki i ciut kwaskowaty, gladki, wrazenie jakby z platkami w burbonie lub cherry nasaczynymi lezal.

crim (100) - POLAND - APR 25, 2016
Bardzo klasyczny porter, w którym dominują klimaty przypieczonego pieczywa i kawy, w tle gorzka czekolada i ciemne owoce,jest dużo ciała, mozna polezakowsc bo czuć troche alko, intensywny aromat i agresywny smak, polecam jesli lubicie bardziej palone portery

phfyysik (449) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2016
Pours black with thick brown foam. Aroma is sweet, very creamy, chocolate cake, vanilla, some dried plums and apricot, light bread. Aroma reminds juicy vanilla cream chocolate cake. And taste is even more - like liquid creamy chocolate cake. And not a regular one, but super good! Taste fills mouth with chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, blackberry jam. It is not very hard, but it dominates. In the other hand it does not feel satiated. Like very good cake which you can’t resist even when you completely full. In after taste coffee dominates, like morning coffee with cream and light sugar. Awesome beer!
