Pours black. Slight red color in sunlight. Small silky off white head that sticks around for a few but doesn’t want to spend too much time with you. Smells like roasted grains and slight hoppy scents blended to perfection. Maybe some creamy scents? Tastes like a good Porter to me. I taste roasted malts and tasty hops. No surprises here. Good solid beer with good solid flavor. Makes my taste buds want to reproduce. I’d buy it again.

Clear dark brown, huge frothy beige head, sticky lacing patches. Medium strong aroma, dry, lightly roasted malt, bit perfume(?). Light to medium body, thin feel, very light roast, dark caramel and fruit (dried), licorice, raspberry, low carbonation, quite short finish. Disappointed. Had this gone bad? Strange flavors, bit diluted. Have to re-taste some day.

KW92 (853) - ❤ WARSZAWA ❤, POLAND - JAN 30, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała, nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Wyczuwalne nuty kakao, orzechy laskowe, zboża. W tle nuty palone, kawowe.
SMAK: Ciemne słody. Wodniste. Posmak czekoladowo-kawowy. Wysokie nasycenie. Goryczka niska.
OGÓLNIE: Przeciętne. Wiele polskich Porter-ów smakuje dużo, dużo lepiej niż ten. Przynajmniej mam nowy kapsel do mojej kolekcji...

SB Lund flaska. Tuff konkurrens för all porter. Superb måttfull stadig.. Balanserad frisk. Var är ostronen. Fucking selendiarre...

5 oz pour at a tasting. Pours a thin and clear light brown. Looks more like a brown than a porter. Aroma of some caramel, light coffee notes, sweet malts. Flavor follows the nose. Not much going on for me here. Wasn’t a fan. Light and thin body, soft carbonation, and a slight bitter finish with some sweetness mixed in.

From Uvinum. In Teku glass. Good. More body than expected, probably because a good use of hops. Not a hoppy interpretation of the style however.

36,5cl bottle @home, shared with a friend. Pours opaque black with small fairly lasting creamy off-white head. Medium body, smooth texture, lively carbonation, fair lacing, dry bitter-sour finish, sour aftertaste. Aromas of roasted barley, coffee, toffee, chocolate, smoothly balanced by citrus hops, complimented by sour fruit finish like raspberries or similar berries. Smooth notes of pepper, smoke. Rich, complex, balanced, enjoyable.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a small off-white head. Aroma is coffee, slight chocolate, earth, ash. Taste is big coffee, roasty malts, ash, very slight chocolate and a round earthiness. A really easy drinking porter that is well balanced.

Belle couleur noir reflet rouge. Au début un goût plutôt terreux en fin café et un peu de chocolat, le tout est Plutôt fade en fin de compte...
