butelka, warka do kwietnia 2016. aromaty niezbyt intensywne, czekoladowe slody i palonosc, gdzies w tle moze troszke ciemnych owocow suszonych.w ustach nieco wodnisty, lekko slodkawy, lekko kwaskowaty od palonosci, niska goryczka, powtorzenie aromatow. nie robi specjalnego wrazenia przez swa niewielka intensywnosc, mimo ze klasyk. niemniej nie da sie ukryc, ze znika ze szklanki blyskawicznie, taki session porter ;)

0,355 bottle. A malty nose. A little sweet. Maybee some coffee also. Taste is nice with malt, roasted, some coffee and some dark chocolate, A good porter, but far from as good as the imp stout from Samuel Smith.

olio (8727) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2015
355 ml bottle.
Pours black color with a medium sized off-white head. Berries and roasted malts on the aroma, dark cocoa and hops. Flavor is slightly fruity and hoppy, dark berries and malts on the flavor, subtle chocolate character. Dry and bitter palate. Refined and clean but something’s missing.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2015
550ml bottle. Poured out a beautiful auburn brown with a thick wheat head and heavy lacing. Aroma was sweet malt and taste was malty with caramel and a slightly floral finish. Good mouth feel. All-in-all, excellent!

tfontana (474) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Pour from bottle into 4 oz taster. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with molasses, chocolate. Appearance is dark brown/black with minimal head. Taste is similar to aroma. Palate is medium bodied with average texture and soft carbonation. Overall, true to the style with a little individual wrinkle to the molasses side. Good.

bartholos (161) - GERMANY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, opaque with a coppery glim and a small tan head. Strong roasted aromas in the nose with coffee, some dark chocolate and a hints of dark fruits and light touch of sherry. Mostly dry taste with a light sweet start that turns into a bitter finish. The taste of coffee is dominating, complemented by notes of chocolate and fruits. However, taste stays back a behind behind the promising aromas in the nose. Still, the roasted malts and the dry bitter flavor resemble coffee quite nicely. The body is medium with medium carbonation. Light bitter finish that keeps the coffeish touch a while longer.

jjsint (1958) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2015
550ml bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Kings Parade. Dark brown with quickly disappearing tan head. Carbonation is very lively. Brown sugar, milk chocolate, roasted malt. Slight metallic smell. Very sweet taste with a small bit of bitter in the finish. Balanced finish with cocoa on the aftertaste. Full body with massive tickly carbonation. Pretty darn good.

promontor (102) - HUNGARY - DEC 4, 2015
0.33l bottle, from csakajósör. Small beige head, not very persistent. Black colour. Aroma is promising, though moderate: chocolate and berries. Taste is dissapointingly simple, some coffee and coke. Plus some unidentifiable medicin-like bitterish taste. Palate is terrible, way too fizzy. Aftertaste is again that unidentifiable medicin-like bitterish taste. Did not like it.
