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.

I love porter beers, but not much for this one, ..... less coffee taste and smell. It turns sour as chill released

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
Brown color with reddish tones and very fast disappearing off-white to beige foam. Aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy, notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, caramel and some light floral. Taste is also sweet with notes of roasted malt and vanilla. Medium to light body with soft carbonation, slick texture and a bitter finish.

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Opaque reddish brown with moderate foam. Pleasant heavy roasted, caramel malt in the nose. The flavor is slightly mild, but the caramel and toffee notes come up. Medium body, low carbonation, slightly chewy. I love these bottles.

ndburns (165) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown with ruby tinges and a minimal tan head. Roasted malt aroma, hints of chocolate, nuts, toffee. Similar flavors, quite dry throughout, some sweetness up front, but settles into a dry bitterness.

Fules (786) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 30, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, fekete szín. Pörkölt malátás, kávés, kissé kakaós illat. Pörkölt malátás, feketecsokis ízvilág. Utóíze pörkölt kesernye, pici csoki, nem túl hosszú. Fincsi klasszikus porter, a könnyed és a közepes testesség határán.

LazyPyro (566) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
500ml bottle. Very dark brown/mahogany colour, almost black, with a one finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, biscuity, hint of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, some bitter coffee notes in the finish. Lovely creamy texture, well balanced, soft carbonation. Really nice porter.

Lele (422) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 2, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone molto scuro, praticamente impenetrabile a bicchiere pieno. Schiuma marroncino chiaro, fine, poco abbondante e poco persistente. AROMA: aroma non intenso, ma ben avvertibile sentori di leggero marzapane e tostato. GUSTO: tostato, liquirizia e un leggero marzapane le fanno da padrone. Chiude con un leggero amarognolo tostato. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione media. CONCLUSIONE: birra pulita e ben fatta, che disseta e dŕ soddisfazioni.

tfontana (690) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is roasted malt, toffee. Appearance is dark, dark mahogany--almost black--with finger-width light brown head with poor retention but decent lacing. Taste is roasted malt with dark fruits and toffee, hint of bitter coffee at end. Palate is medium bodied with creamy, thick texture, soft carbonation and mostly bitter, dry finish. Overall, a decent amount going on and a nice change from American-style porters.
