COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Gurthnar (1822) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle. Aroma dry roasted and chocolate. Quite dry. Clear very dark colour. Off-white head. Taste is again quite dry from the beginning. Roasted and dark chocolate, somewhat simple, but really effective and tasty. Easily drinkable with a dry roasted finish.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAY 31, 2014

Douberd (2309) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle at home, 500 ml, poured into a snifter. ANB 5.1% Darl mahogany brown colour on the body, tall light beige head, thick, with very good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt caramel, light honey notes, berries, grapes. Taste follows, mostly sweet, caramel, some hops, hints of honey and molasses, berries, a hint of citrus acidity, faint roasted malts. Mildly bitter on the aftertaste, it doesn’t need more in my opinion. Medium thin body, low carbonation, quite dry palate. Not your usual porter but very good nevertheless, very interesting.

jjsint (785) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle originally from Ocado. Half a shade darker than Coca-Cola brown. A bit of carbs and a wisp of cream-coloured head. Scent of chocolate, slate, a bit of herbal sweetness. Sweet taste that fades with a little twinge of bitterness at the end. Relatively short finish. Light to medium mouthfeel. Quite a good beer and worth drinking, but hard to get overly excited about.

Bottle 50cl. Black with almost no head. Nose has hints of caramel and malt. Not a complex beer, would have expected a more rich taste. Slight bitter finish.
