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.

superspak (2477) - Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2014
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/herbal hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light hop notes; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good robust porter. All around nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

JulienHuxley (2947) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2014
On tap at the BeerTemple. Opaque black pour with thin tan foam. Aroma is roasty, coffee, torrefied malt, fruity. Taste is sweet and roasty, lots of coffee and tropical fruit, light roasted malt sourness. Palate is light-med bodied with light-med carbonation, pretty easy drinking, a bit too fruity. Good.

sic1314 (3114) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Poured deep, dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast malt and light coffee. Medium body, quite smooth, flavour of the aroma, light berries. Could be even better if the ABV was increased.

Great porter. Taste of roasted coffee and cacao malt, yet with a smooth edge of caramel. Silky indeed.

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 2, 2014
Drought. Dark brown with tan spongy head, caramel-burnt malt aroma, low carbonation, dusky toasted taste with alcohol overtones, longish finish with coffee aftertaste. Very nice porter, bordering a stout.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en octubre de 2012, un par de veces. Porter suave, refinada y con sabores y aromas ligeros tostados maltosos con algo de café y cacao. Cuerpo medio con 6.2 vol fácil de beber. Buena, para repetir.
