COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Brouwerij (889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with quickly settling tan head, small amounts of lumpy lace. Aroma is toasted, toffee, nutty malt, caramelized sugar. Flavor is mildly sweet, toasted, toffee, caramel malt, lightly nutty, with a toffee, sweet malt finish. Would have liked to see more roast. Very soft carbonation, medium body, smooth texture.

tmzl (74) - SLOVENIA - MAR 17, 2014

Look: Pours with average, semi-thick (bottom has small bubbles, they get bigger towards the top), creamy, mocha head. It has good retention, mostly diminishing; patchy, thin, thick layer leaves some fine lacing. Dark with light brown (maybe some amber) hue, can’t see through but the pour was with lighter body.

Smell: Freshness from plums and black berries and smooth roast with mostly milk chocolate and caramel. Some oats and grain with light espresso underline too. Maybe a bit of lemon hops also in the mix.

Taste: Fresh start with dark berries and plum dumplings - light sourness. Continues into medium light sweetness with smooth darker malt character, roast, milk chocolate, caramel. Light mineral notes present. The end is also smooth, light bitterness, mostly roast with milk chocolate. Some light sourness comes in the after too.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, but creamy, smooth with right amount of carbonation - enhances the silky feeling.

Overall: Suiting name, nothing stands out, everything relatively smooth, light and well balanced, yet has many thing to show.

worldbeertaste (1548) - AUSTRIA - DEC 23, 2013
Black with a thick, tan, lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of liquorish, coffee, roast, sweet malt, red berries, and a light freshness. Medium smooth thin, to oily body. Tastes of sweet berries, balanced against the coffee roast and a bit of ash. A bit thinish and flavourful but needs more roast.
