alteregoo (182) - POLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Spora beżowa piana, średnio trwała, kożuszek pozostaje do końca degustacji, barwa ciemno brązowa z rubinowymi refleksami, wydaje się dość klarowne. W aromacie czekolada, cola, prażone ziarno, przypalony karmel i przyprawy (majernek?). W smaku znacznie lepiej, lekka słodycz ciemnych słodów, kakao, kawa latte. Przyjemne odczucie ziemistości, popiołowości w aftertease, wpływa to na odbiór piwa, które mimo, że lekkie, wydaje się dość pełne, aksamitne, gładkie. Goryczka niewysoka, ziołowo-palona, alkohol niewyczuwalny, nagazowanie niskie. Piwo sesyjne, gładko się je pije, ciekawa ziołowa paloność utrzymująca się na języku kilka chwil po przełknięciu. Po ogrzaniu się piwa początkowa słodycz ustępuje, staje się bardziej wytrawnie, pojawia się nawet minimalna kwaskowość suszonej śliwki. Minusem jest ten dziwny "majeranek" w aromacie.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Deep, rich oil black with a modest tan head. Nice aromas of coffee and roasted malts with a slight smoked quality. Taste is more of the same. Clean and dry finish with a hint of salt.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 12A). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch L14219. AROMA: mild sweet roasty aroma with notes of molasses, sweet chocolate, toffee and nutty (walnuts). No fruity esters and no diacetyl. APPEARANCE: dark Brown color with ruby highlights and translucent. moderate tanned head with good retention. TASTE: moderate roasted flavour with notes of coffee, walnuts, dark chocolate and a slight pinch of toffee. medium-low to low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours, esters nor diacetyl. PALATE: medium-light body with moderately low carbonation. OVERALL: a very good example of what a brown porter should be. highly recommended.

mario_giri (141) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Home. Fast schwarz, langer, sehr hellbrauner Schaum. Aroma: Ganz leichte Malzaromen, leicht süßlich aber auch etwas fruchtig ist zu vernehmen, ganz wenig Hopfen im Hintergrund. Im Antrunk malzig, wenig süss ganz wenig Röstaromen leichte Schokolade etwas Karamell, dann leichte Bittere. Bleibt auch im Ausklang ganz leicht bitter-süßlich mit feinen auch fruchtigen Aromen. Ein sehr feines Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1466) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
550 ml bottle. Clear deep ruby copper, fine tan foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma is sugary and malty. Sweet toasted brown malt taste, smooth light chocolate, some subtle dark fruitiness later on, faint Noble influence, no bitterness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Classic proper British Porter. LBW Lagerboys Be Wary)
