Roasted chocolate malts kinda sweet burnt marshmallows on the nose. Dark with lots of lacing and creamy head. Taste is similar less sweet, light but classic porter. Finish is thick nutty roasted malts. Very good and satisfying.

Piwo czarno brazowe z obfita bezowa grubopecharykowa piana. W aromacie palone slody, gorzka czekolada, troche toffee i ciemnego chleba. W smaku dosc slodko ale nie mulaco, czuc kawe , troche orzechow i lekka wedzonosc. Dobry balans pomiedzy chmielami a slodami. Troche za malo intensywne jak na konkretnego portera.

Gehbe (229) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Pours deep brown with a big creamy light tan head. Aroma is fairly roasty: dark bread crust, chocolate, some notes of coffee, also prunes, nuts and a bit of toffee. Taste is fairly light, with bitter notes slightly ahead of roasty acidity and a little sweetness. Creamy texture, light to medium body, medium carbonation, a bit of alcoholic warmness. Fairly complex and very drinkable, lovely!

5.6%ABV. Porter. Poured out dark brown. 28ºSRM. Nose overall is that of sweet roasted nuts. Chestnuts come to mind. Some slight aromas of old leather, that you tend to get more in brown ales. The nutty aromas tend to predominate in this brew. Mouthfeel is soda or water. Palate has some nice thick roast-like flavors with light coffee, smoke, roasted chestnuts, black bread, bread crusts, wasa rye bread. There is some light malt flavor. Hops are noble, bitter, and are well-balanced with the darkly roasted malt flavor. Finish is actually medium with charcoal, noble hop bitter. Overall, this was more like a brown ale for me than a porter. From the palate, pretty well-provisioned. So, righteous in my book because they cared enough to brew something worth everybody’s while and calories.

StuffWine (148) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2016
Poured a solid red-tinged black with a rocky tan head that lasted insanely long. Aroma mild of light toasted malts a bit of dust and not much else. Taste is a wonderful rolling of flavours; initially dry and low on flavour it explodes into bitter coffee, then a hint of dark chocolate, then into long sweet toasted malt with sweetness gently fading away into the finish. Full bodied and a touch creamy on palate, and very long finish.
