UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 12-oz bottle. Toasty aroma with some hints of prune and bread. Dark brown color with reddish cast. Stiff brown head with legs. Bitter and mildly sweet at first. Roasted to the point of ashiness. Sour cherry and apple notes. Bitterness mellows and then deepens on the finish. Pretty clean however. Medium to light body with some astringence on the front. High drinkability. Changed my opinion about this beer after several bottles. It grows on you but it is still just slightly above average.

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 (259) - 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.
