Pale ale’s full flavored cousin... hoppy, same abv...but for some reason really hard to find. Pours dark brown, little head. Nose is sweet and malty. Body has a lot of chocolate, roast, nutty, and a hoppy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Vells (790) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 1, 2015
Standard decent porter. Nothing overdone or undone here. Light roasted maltiness, green coffee beans. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Drinkable but too thin body for my liking

Black, strong beige head. Chocolate and roasted caramel on the nose. Medium thick mouthfeel, sweet and roasty, but not overly so, balanced with some bitterness. Finishes bittersweet and roasty. Nice!

so less body as for porter, to much water. I don’t feel alcohol at all. Tasted from bottle in Vilnius, Lithuania.

bastarda (134) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
subtle yet strong Willamette nose: floral, spicy, a bit woody, faint reminiscence of wild strawberries, also some bitter chocolate. Taste brings out the Willamette again, this time carried on a toasty, smooth malt base, finishing more on the freshly ground and then brewed filter coffee side, also in aftertaste. A wonderful Porter!

Bottle, 355 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with creamy off-white head. Nice lacing. Roasted malts and chocolate flavor. Light hoppy bitterness. Bit thin, would like more body.

gripweed57 (797) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12ounce bottle.pours a dark mahogany brown color with a massive creamy beige head. Pleasant roasted malt aroma has a hint of spicy hops and cardamom. Rich malty flavor with notes of cocoa and toasted walnuts. Nice spicy hops in mid taste offer a nice balance to the roasted malt. Very well done.
