Bottle , looks very the same as this picture , but the chair is red, so are the tittles and they switched places ( porter above, mikkeller below ) . 8 ABV on the bottle.
Pours black, dark brown head
Smell is intense, typical porter characters are there , plus a nice amount of chocolate .
Very gentle carbo
Nice taste ! Bit bitter, chocolate, that porter-metallicness in a very balanced way . Very drinkable .
Rather sweet, dark aftertaste .
Very balanced and nice !

Swietny porter. Mistrzostwo
