Dark, robust and silky-smooth, with many flavors of roasted, toasted and caramel malts. Porter is an old-world beer style, so popular that it helped start the industrial revolution. Taste the history.

Soft aroma of light chocolate, raisins and a little caramel. Pours black with a silky and creamy head that lasts long. Medium sweet and a slight hop bitterness. Silky and smooth mouthfeel, a tad too much carbonation for my liking. Overall a solid porter that is pretty easy going.

Tap @ Bishops Arms Hornsgatan. Black with a small creamy beige lacing head. Rosted chocolate aroma. Silky smooth mouthfeel, gentle carbonated. Rosted almost smokey notes in taste, chocolate biscuits, cocoa, fresh figs. No real deep flavors, still pleasant.

Bottle from Bierkompass!
Pours deep black with a high, creamy off-white head. Aroma has strong coffee notes, paired with sweet chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is smooth roasty, rich malty with a nice coffee note and some chocolate in the background. Finish is slight fermented, strong malt notes as well as some dark fruits.

serjaymz (154) - Istanbul, TURKEY - SEP 27, 2015
27.09.2015, @beertemple, musluk. Görüntü: siyah, ince kahverengi köpüklü, bardakta yoğun. Yüksek viskoziteli. Koku: kavrulmuş malt, kahve, sütlü çikolata. Kavrulmuş kokular ile süt-stout'a andıran yumuşak tatlı tınılar bir arada. Tadım: kavrulmuş malt, Sütlü çikolata, kahve tınılarını hafif kremamsı bir doku ile veriyor. Kremamsı yoğunluk bir adım önde olsa müthiş olacak..
