Thick black colored, small non lasting tan head. Aroma is kinda sweet, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice, some roasted malt and coffee. Taste is moderate+ sweetness, bit toffee, chocolate, dark fruits and licorice, strong roasted and coffee dry bitterish finish with some sweetness and lasting aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, low+ carbonation, quite thick and creamy. Very good, would be excellent if only a bit less sweet.

500 ml bottle brewed 08.05.14, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark brown body, with a big, frothy, rocky, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, wood, dark fruits, some smoke.
Tastes delicious, with about the same aromas, wonderful espresso, with slight ash notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty, quite dry, with coffee, wood, cocoa.

Really tasty. Wonderful espresso notes, strong, but very smooth to drink. Completely worth the ratings, one of the best Porters I’ve had so far!

koshack (984) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Piana drobna, brązowa, bardzo trwała. Ładnie koronkuje. W aromacie dość wytrawne. Pachnie śliwkami i trochę deserowa czekoladą. Lekkie nuty chmielu, trochę ziołowe. W całości aromatu dają lekko likierowy aromat. W smaku znów czekolada, dość wytrawna, choć czuć trochę słodkich nut. W odczuciu nie jest bardzo pełne mimo tego ekstraktu. Lekko zaznaczony alkohol, trochę drapie w przełyku.

VsXsV (3645) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, light chocolate, light ash, toast, dried fruit, raw sugar and bread. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate, licorice and biscuit. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent if a bit roasted for the style.
