Bottle from Kris Wines. Dark black colour with a huge beige head, lots of initial carbonation. Roasty, currant and fruit cake, a fair alcoholic kick, some dark and dirty tar in the finish. Drinks very smoothly for all its full flavour. More of a stout than a porter, or maybe an imperial porter if such a thing exists, but either way high quality stuff.

Goede porter. Aroma: koffie en een zoete zweem. Smaak: mooie combinatie tussen bitter, hartig en zoet. Gebrande mout zorgt voor een houtachtige smaak. Rijp donker fruit zorgt voor de balans. Mooie porter.

piwnepodroze (406) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
W pokalu znajduje się bardzo czarna ciecz o sporej gęstości, zwieńczona beżową, ładnie budującą się pianą. Porter jest przede wszystkim bardzo gładki i wręcz oleisty, a także dosyć nisko nasycony. Ja takie lubię. Doskonała paloność miesza się w trakcie piwa z aromatem i smakiem gorącej czekolady i mocnej kawy. Na koniec dochodzi posmak kakao, pralin i daktyli. Porter jest bardzo przyjemnie zbalansowany - średnia pełnia i aromat sugerujący słodycz, a ta jest uzupełniona paloną gorzkością i odpowiednim nachmieleniem. Świetny porter!

Pours black with a brown head. It has good head retention with good lacing. It has aromas of chocolate, some coffee, roast, and a bit of citrus. There are flavors of chocolate, coffee, roast, a bit of citrus and dried fruit. It has a moderate body on the high side with fairly high carbonation. It has a moderately bitter finish with mild alcohol warmth. Overall this is a porter with excellent combination of malts with complexity between the chocolate and roast and a surprisingly hoppy bite to it.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a light brown creamy head. The aroma is full of roasted malts with cacao and a nuttily-woddy note. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Could be a little bit more creamy. Light to medium sweetness and a very light bitterness and some acidic notes. Taste ofroasted malts - molasse - with some sweet berries. Nice finish with that again features the roasted malts and adds a further dimension to the beer. Very nice porter.
