Eructoblaster (3294) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a black, opaque body with a thin, lasting, beige foamy head. Very interesting malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee and subtle orange hints. Its very well balanced taste carries roasty, woody, herbal, and zesty notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter/roasty finish. Very good.

Nez de chocolat amer. Première gorgée assez déroutante, les saveurs chocolatées et acidulées avancent côte à côte sans vraiment se mêler. Un piquant assez particulier en attaque. Le Yuzu forcément, même si je ne connais pas assez pour reconnaître .... Frais et intriguant. A gouter à nouveau ...

neongolden (728) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
(330ml bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 14 2015) Pours black with a huge pillowy tan head. Aroma of yuzu zest, orange liqueur, roast malts with a bit of chocolate, smoky. Palate has orange and some yuzu, earthy kind of smoky dark roast malt, orange rind and a little molasses towards the finish, wet earth, mushrooms on the finish?, more smoky ashy roast. Yuzu works fairly well but not convinced it’s the best style for it. Light to medium body with high carb. Not bad but doesn’t quite connect for me. Big yuzu fan so that bumps it a notch.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours dark with fluffy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and a faint whisp of citrus. Taste is nice and chocolatey with a very vague orange influence. What I could detect worked well, but would’ve liked more!

Rune (9076) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2015
200ml on tap at Mikkeller and Friends, shared with Skinnyviking. Spotty lacing from a low beige head. Devil-black body. Smell of dark malts, sweet and tart. Dark chocolate malts together with dark berries to the flavour profile. Underlying fruity tartness. Medium bodied. Quite alright (Copenhagen 02.05.2015).

willisread (617) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into an English tulip pint. Beautiful looking cola brown porter with a medium sized soapy tan head. Leaves a nice little rim around the glass throughout with decent lacing. Big yuzu (for those of you who don’t know it’s somewhere around a lemon and lime) nose with a slight background of roasted coffee and malt. Medium body with a cola-like mouthfeel. Average carbonation with a roasted taste on the palate and some bright sour notes from the yuzu. Slightly bitter but not overly so. As it comes to room temperature, the yuzu nose dissipates and roasted coffee stands out more like a traditional porter. The yuzu stays in the taste throughout. Really nice dry finish that is slightly warming even with a 6% ABV. The yuzu flavor mixes well with the roasted coffee taste. Really interesting take on porter.

Lovely creamy stout with an orange zest. Earth notes. Medium and round bitter. Makes me happy.

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Dark brown colour and small head on top. Aroma has yuzu fruit, lots of roasted almost burned malts and coffee. Taste has zesty yuzu fruit and lots of roasted malts. Medium body and medium carbonation. I don’t think that the yuzu fruit and the roasted flavours of the porter played well together.
