50cl bottle from Discount. Pours dark black with a chocolate milk head leaving nice lacing coating more than half the glass. Secret appears to be fairly continual carbonation; many fine bubbles throughout the duration of the glass. Aroma has caramel and coffee with nice roasty malts. Taste follows, along with some dark fruit hints. Quite smooth. Finishes sweet with bitterness back, about medium length. A nice solid porter.

alteregoo (713) - 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 półsłodkie, lekko szorstkie, ziemiste, znów króluje kawa, zarówno po turecku jak i espresso, czekolada, palony karmel. Goryczka niska do średniej, palona. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, półpełne w odbiorze. Dobrze ukryty alkohol.
Dość pijalny, gładki i smaczny Porter, fajnie zbalansowany i ułożony. Minusem niewielka wada w aromacie.

BenL8 (22) - 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.

Lele (354) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 31, 2016
Una delle migliori porter mai assaggiate. Gustosa e complessa. Sentori dominanti di marzapane, caffè e cioccolato, nonché un floreale al naso. Corpo medio, la birra scivola benissimo. Capolavoro!
