7.4%ABV. Porter. Poured ouf of the bottle a very promising sludgy black producing a thin khaki brown head. A very enticing 40ºSRM. A color standard for all porters to aspire to, methinks. The nose is full of light sweet flavors that reminiscent of cotton candy and leche espana. There are beautiful caramel, toffee, butterscotch and espresso like aromas. The palate is ponderous with deeply roasted dark malt flavors in spades. Not like a traditional English porter because it is more agrressively carbonated as well as having a deeper, maltier, more black bread like experience. Porters are supposed to be heavier, but this is broader, deeper and more flavorful than a traditional porter, likely because traditional porters likely couldn’t afford what it costs to brew this behemoth of an ale! There is a nice clean carbon-sweet finish, like the burnt ends off a hunk of perfectly grilled char siew or bakkwa. So very familiarly inviting, and seductively engaging. Goes on Favorites List!

koshack (710) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Piana drobna, brązowa, bardzo gęsta i trwała. Ładnie koronkuje. Pierwszy raz widziałem taki efekt, żeby już po wypiciu piwa zostało coś na kształt cylindra z piany wewnątrz szkła. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie wyraźne nuty portera, plus chmielowe. Ma bogaty aromat, lekko słodki, idący w stronę RIS-a. Nuty likierowe, trochę kawy. Lekkie rodzynki i śliwki. Złożony bogaty aromat. W smaku gorzkie, lekko cierpkie. Mocno porterowe i wytrawne. Nie czuć kwaskowości. Goryczka średnia, dość długa. Nie ma tak złożonego smaku jak aromat. Trochę nut palonych i alkoholowych. Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany.

cervmagpt (454) - PORTUGAL - SEP 17, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 13C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 24/11/18). AROMA: predominant dark chocolate aroma with notes of sweet coffee, some faint dark dried fruits and Maillard product (some roasted bread), with a mild sweet background. APPEARANCE: very dark Brown color (almost black) and opaque. average creamy brown head with good retention and legging. TASTE: initial dark chocolate flavour with some faint noites of dark dried fruits and Maillard products, that evolve into a somewhat sweet roasted coffee finish. low hop derived bitterness with a semi-dry and roasted finish. PALATE: medium body with a slight velvety texture. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a very good and balanced porter with nice, and not extremely roasted, aromas and flavours.

Pours a really dark brown with a medium brown head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of roasted malt, light licorice, green hops and alcohol. Taste is not particularly sweet so it must be dry and moderately bitter. Green hops, roasted malt, vanilla. Body is medium-full and carbonation soft. A little hot alcohol. Airy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter black malts. A pretty good american porter, not a standout though.

yourilevesque (570) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
Magnifique bière noire surmontée d’un collet brun et mousseux comme on les aime! Les arômes sont riches, torréfiés, maltés et granuleux. Magnifique balance de houblons verts et de café. En bouche le liquide est légèrement alcoolisé et me rappelle un café fort, légèrement farineux et d’une densité spectaculaire! Beaucoup de grains de café grillés, de cacao en poudre et présence agréable d’un subtile vieillissement qui frôle la madérisation. Ça sent le vieux coffre de bois de chêne! J’adore. Longue finale amère, ronde et crémeuse. Un très agréable Porter d’après-midi!

Very dark brown color, average sized brown head. Nice retention. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee and hoppy frutiness underneath. Taste is similar. Very nice citrusy fruitiness and vanilla hints. Greatly balanced. Long coffee and cocoa aftertaste. Awesome.
