Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 2, 2011
oured from the tap into a pint glass The color is a dark black with some maroon highlights and about two fingers of foamy brownish head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is roasty with a little dry malt aroma. There is some dark chocolate aroma in the nose that has a coffee roast like aroma too. The taste is roasted malt and is filled with a nice dry chocolate flavor that sets back a bit to hang with a coffee flavor that mixes with some nice toast burnt flavor. The feel of this beer is complex but smooth as it goes down with ease and has a silky aftertaste that is more enjoyable then a lot of Porters I have had. This one is one of the better ones.

Lele (336) - 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!
