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.

willisread (1876) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of cacao, dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste is more of the same with a bitter roasted coffee-like finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad but not as good as the cream stout.

gregwilsonstl (1819) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Brown. Somewhat sweet at first, then becomes quite dry. Tastes a bit aged (maybe due to green bottle?). Fairly light body. The hops stand out more than the body. Good but not great.

dnicolaescu (1624) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 4, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Brown malt and bread, a touch of caramel in the aroma, dark bread crust, and a drop of hops too. Not much roasted notes, like chocolate or coffee. It is half-way between a mild and a modern porter. The flavour is brown malts, very restrained caramel sweetness, and a solid spicy bitter finish. Smooth mouth-feel, despite the lack of carbonation. it does not feel flat or watery. Nothing extreme here, just a smooth balanced beer. Surprisingly good.
