Clear brown colour with quick fading head. Aroma has sweet vanilla and milk chocolate. Flavour is similarly sweet. There’s a lasting roast malt bitterness in the aftertaste.

Swaroga (1635) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2015
Butelka 60cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor ciemnobrązowy, pod światło przejrzysty. Piana piwa jest trwała ale niewielka o kolorze jasnego beżu. NOS : piwo jest mocno schłodzone więc pachnie jak lody waniliowe i czekoladowe. Czekoladowe nuty są mocno palone, podobne do czarnej czekolady. Mocno kojarzy się z mlekiem kakaowym. I to by było na tyle bo aromat nie jest za bardzo złożony : przyjemny ale prosty. USTA : piwo ma delikatne nasycenie. Kremowe w ustach. Ogólnie wodniste i prawie wytrawne o nutach palonej kawy. Taki dry stout ale mocno potrzymany przez nuty mleka i wanilii. W wyniku tego nuty kawowe przypominają ziemiste i niesłodzone kakao. Czyli kakaowy o mlecznej kwaśności i wyraźnych nutach wanilii. W posmaku ziemiste i palone i do tego lekko cierpkie. ODCZUCIA : łatwe w piciu i przyjemne. Nie ma rewolucji ale jest to świetny przykład lekkiego portera o mocnych nutach wanilii. Nie jestem fanem mlecznych stoutów i tutaj mam przykład, że Porter może również pochwalić się podobnym profilem bez użycia laktozy. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

Torrefacto (800) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 9, 2015
Color negro con reflejos rubí y espuma beis claro, duradera aunque compacta. Aroma de intensidad media-alta de vainilla, con café y tostados más moderados. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce de vainilla de intensidad media al que se unen los tostados y el café en un final de amargor moderado pero duradero.

A pretty good porter. Dark aroma of chocolate, vanilla, oak chips and hop. Flavor is similar, bursting with vanilla. Oaky backbone. Minor chocolate notes. Bitter from the hop. Complex porter. I don’t usually like vanilla ones but this is nice!

Bomber from Hayduke that we had over facebook chat. Poured at just under 50 F and allowed to slowly warm. This is quite dark with some amber. a tan head leaves a steady layer on the glass. I smell roasted notes first with lesser vanilla and earth. The feel is smooth. I taste more vanilla that is smelled and the roast is less than the aroma. With warming I get more vanilla and citrus emerges. This is a nice three legged stand of pleasantness. The finish is full of the citrus. Interesting how this went from roasty to vanilla forward, to hop first. I approve.

I just didn’t get it. Vanilla was very subtle, it was overly carbonated. It did have some coffee like astringency that some porters have... Just not that good.

ShivanDragon (2010) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2014
schenkt als bruin/rood met fijne kaki kraag. aroma van mouten, zoetig, chocolade, vanille, lekker maar niet overdreven. Smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bittertje, licht zuurtje, zwak fruitig, redelijk moutig (geroosterd), koffie, iets notig, vanille, maar erg zoete snoepjes/spekjes achtige tonen. zwakke body veel te dun, aroma redelijk, smaken goed alleen véél te dun.... jammer
