Holmen2 (2200) - NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
Backlog. At Mi2 at Cardinal 08.04.13. Dark brown. Brown head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of dark chocolate and coffee, with some bitterness. Long, bitter and well-balanced aftertaste. Perhaps slightly too carbonated. High drinkability!

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Not sure if it’s this version, but the label clearly says "Til - Fra - via" in that order, but it’s a 33cl bottle ant the Best Before date is 27/08/19. Black pour, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, bread, chocolate, caramel, molasses and spices. Flavor is quite bitter, roasty, creamy, some caramel and with a huge body, especially for 8% ABV. Smooth and well drinkable. Lovely brew.

Leighton (15323) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Keg at Archea - Florence. Deep black-brown with a creamy brown head. Lots of hard roast in the nose, iodine, baking cocoa. Medium sweet flavorbwith dominant bitter dark chocolate, some bent plastic, burnt meat, charred wood, earth, burnt toffee. Full bodied, somewhat chewy, with fine carbonation. Sticky and lightly warming on the finish with some more char character - wood, plastic, earth - and more chocolate. A little too sugary at points, and also a little harsh with the chat. So so on the whole.

750 ml bottle. #201121. BB 30/08/15. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Black colour with a big dark tan head. Chocolate, cocoa beans, mildly roasted malt, sweetness and hoppy bitterness in a strong aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, mild vanilla sweetness, mild hoppy bitterness and mild spices. Quite nice. Surprisingly drinkable for a 8% porter.

radiomgb (2560) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Near black in colour, long lasting large tan head, excellent lacing. Aroma of is hoppy, roasted malt, caramel, light coffee. Flavour is quite malty, chocolate, some hops, light alcohol, moderate sweetness. Sweet and warming mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes hoppy, long and sweet. I like this, hoppy porters are good.

Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med kraftigt nästan brunsvart skum. Enorma mängder av kaffe och chokladarom. Fruktig och mjuk i smaken. Mer kakao och kaffe. Efter ett tag framträder röda syltiga bär. Kul lagringsemperiment från 2011.
