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.

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 (206) - 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.

BlazerT (499) - 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.
