Dobry porter ciemny i tresciwy. Slodowy a zarazem goryczkowy, lecz amerykanskie chmiele nie dominuja tu tak jak w APA. Jest czekoladowo, puding obsypany gozka czekolada. Piana na srednim poziomie ale utrzymuje sie. Finisz to goryczka. Dobrze skomponowane piwo.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2014
Draft @ Hoppy Loft quoique j’avais déjà dégusté cette evrsion à de nombreuses reprises aux US. De couleur brunâtre, col blanc cassé, moka. Arôme est malté, caramel-crystal, note grillé sur un bouquet moka modéré surtout pour les 5%M de la bière. Palais est léger, rafraichissant laissant pas mal de place aux malts sans être surfait. Reste une bière facile à approcher avec un petit résiduel houblonné qui ajoute un peu d’amertume noble en fin de bouche.

Tayeth (115) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Smell is rich: chocolate, coffee, blackberry jam. The promise is not entirely redeemed by the taste. The beer is quite bitter with an astringent touch, a bit unbalanced. Still, quite a nice porter.

Aroma nach Zartbitter und Kaffee. Im Geschmack dann ausgewogene Süße und interessante Hopfenaromen. Zum Ende hin nachhägend bitter.

superspak (2212) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, caramel, coffee, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt with light hop presence; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, herbal, light pine, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness. Light earthy pine/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, herbal, light pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and moderate hop flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good porter. Good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Á in de Wildeman. Afskaplega mjúkur, glasið er bara 25cl og ég vildi að það væri helmingi rýmra. Já og það væri meira í því líka.
