Black colored porter with small but creamy head. Nice body with malty chocolate taste and some smoke aroma. Finish a bit thin for my taste. Decent porter but not astonishing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this in Alfie’s Bar on 800 9th Avenue, New York on the 23rd September 2015. Keg dispense in a half pint glass. Black in colour with ruby highlights and a thin, creamy pale buff head. Strong sweetness of drinking chocolate powder coming through in the intense malty aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark complex malts give a smooth delivery of liquorice, black coffee and roast grain flavours full in the mouth. Short dusty hop prickle adds a quick bitter aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with roast malt, liquorice, coffee beans and dark chocolate notes once again linger in the palate. This is a decent tasting Porter that belies the high gravity - beware!

355 ml. bottle sampled. Bottled on date is hard to read but looks like this one was bottled in 2013. Pours a very dark furniture brown, little to almost no mocha head. Nose is big on soy sauce, varnish, thinned out, ashes, herbal & more umami + soy sauce notes that I am not too crazy about. Taste is thin herbal, soy sauce, umami, leaves, thin & powdery with old herbs, feels thinned out, touch oxidized, more ashes, some port wine, leaves & licorice. Body much like taste is thinned out, ashy, powdery, faintly vinous almost (body & taste). Not too crazy about this one, age might play a part here but I feel like it just isn’t really for me. Having this one in a better state would have been nicer.

Dark porter with nice baige head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla and some smoke I think. Taste of turkish coffee, out of ballance with bitterness which IMHO is too high. Good beer but thats all!
Thank you Sandra & Tom H.

Výčap Beergeek Bar. Čierna farba, krémová pena. Vôňa pražených sladov, jemne karamelu a prezretých sliviek. Chuť v začiatkoch trošku vodovejšia. Neskôr suchosť kakao, čokoláda, pražené slady. Príjemná dlhá dochuť.

Deep brown, lovely thick beige head. Aroma espresso, vanilla, molasses. Palate medium, higher carbonation. taste vanilla, coffee, sourish earthy spiciness which balances everything just right. Smoky and earthy finish.
Complex yet not overwhelming porter!
