JorgeLee (1692) - Greater London, - JAN 26, 2013
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.

BlazerT (470) - POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Jet black with big, densed, light brown head. Medicare head retention and lacing. Nice, medium roasted malts aroma - mainly milk chocolate, cocoa and some coffee. Also somewhere in the background dried fruits, smooth toffee area, lightly smokey. Trace of booze noticable. Taste is lightly bitter, little acidic and dryish. Medium body, creamy and oily texture, average carbonation, finish is milk chocolate, lightly bitter and semi-dry. In overall nice and interesting porter. Highly drinkable, definitely worth trying.

Vestergaard (1576) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2016
bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours a pitch black with a nice, tan head. Aroma has raisins, smokey malts, tar, licorice, chocolate, coffee, slight ashy. Taste is sweet, very roasty, again slight ash and a quite hoppy bitter after taste. Quite a lot of caramel too. Average to low carbonation and a semi-full, oily texture.

Nonshaugen (398) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2016
50 cl, bottle fermented, batch #1599. Jet black, thick creamy brownish tan head, looks fantastic. Lovely aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich, bitter and well carbonated. Flavours of dark bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and tobacco smoke, long aftertaste. This batch was brewed quite recently, so it may benefit of ageing for a year or two.

Padedze (16) - - JUN 8, 2016
A good pour but with no head. Molasses and dark roast malt on the nose. Chocolate and licorice with a hint of coffee and a touch of hop bitterness. Carbonation is bold. This is a nice thick bodied beer that is well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Smells of roasted malts, smoke, chocolate. The taste follows the same notes, roasty and well balanced, with some brewed coffee thrown into the mix. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a bitter chocolate aftertaste.

alteregoo (797) - POLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Spora, beżowa i drobna piana, długo pozostaje w postaci chmurek i nieznacznie oblepia szkło. Barwa ciemno brązowa z rubinowymi refleksami, klarowna, spory osad na dnie butelki. Aromat przypomina świeżo paloną kawę w towarzystwie gorzkiej czekolady i wody mineralnej, jest też trochę kanalizy. W smaku płsłodkie, lekko szorstkie, ziemiste, znw krluje kawa, zarwno po turecku jak i espresso, czekolada, palony karmel. Goryczka niska do średniej, palona. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, płpełne w odbiorze. Dobrze ukryty alkohol.
Dość pijalny, gładki i smaczny Porter, fajnie zbalansowany i ułożony. Minusem niewielka wada w aromacie.

BenL8 (52) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Appearance: completely black with a thin stout-ish head which remains for a long time. Aroma: sweet and distinctly smokey, sweet toffee and some treacle, woody/oak notes. Intriguing complex aroma with intense dark malt and burnt characteristics Flavour: oily mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa and chocolate, some nice roasty flavours and coffee. Very smokey! The dark malts are very distinct but some underlying hops is also noticeable which gives it a nice bitter and grassy almost earthy dry finish. Brilliant Porter, showing off the style with a bit of smoke.
