COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mamba Porter is een donkere Amerikaanse Porter. Chocolade mout, koffie-mout, Galena hop en Irish Ale gist verzorgeneen volle mout smaak die gecombineerd is met een verrassend frisse toets. Ondanks of dankzij zijn gespleten karakter is dit bier volledig in balans.

Om de hopsensatie specifieker te maken is slechts een hopsoort gebruikt: Galena uit de VS. De Hop is 120 minuten continu toegevoegd. De dry hop vier weken later, vlak voor het bottelen.

McNeillR (1677) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Spicy nose with hints of fresh chopped pepper amongst a mostly roast nose. Dark brown but clear body, well turned over sandy head. A real hop roll out through the mid-range, with the tickling carbonation elevating a clean and dry hop ruskiness in balance with a gritty malt base.
The carbo loading really takes this Porter onto a noteable level, clean hop crust with a dry pruney finish. Well worth picking up at the right price.

Bottle, Nina’s, Edinburgh

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2013
33cl bottle from Biernavigatie. Brune claire, col épais crémeux, café au lait. Arôme malté, moyen, chocolaté avec ce côté renfermé de houblons, le tout sur un bouquet citronné et fleuri suivi de malt grillé. Palais est malté, grillé, café est léger avec une fine amertume en fin de bouche, et ce côté dry-hopped du houblon Galena laissant un léger fini aiguille de pin, agrumes pour un fini sec et poudreux. Ce dernier enlève un peu du caractère chocolaté et café censé être mis en avant. Le profil chocolaté tend à se faire plus présent lorsque la bière arrive en t° ambiante. Pas mauvaise, mais manque juste ce petit qcq chose de plus.

downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown in colour with a short lived tan head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma with a touch of leafy hops. Flavour had more roasted malts and chlorate before a dry finish with a hoppy kick. Enjoyable.
