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.

Distinctive medicine style bottle. More amber in color than most porters. Head is a soapy tan with plenty of retention. Aroma is a delightful dark fruit. Plums and raisins abound and a hint of smoke is an undertone. Flavor is more tart than expected and plenty smoky. It is a sweet beer, though, and the malt takes some different turns. Interestingly, the malt flavor that is most common appears while licking the lips after a drink. Dark fruit can be found but it is underneath. Chocolate and coffee are also found. More of the dark fruit makes its way to the taste buds late in the glass. Mostly this porter has a smoky tart flavor and a little less hops would be an improvement. It is an interesting beer to rate in that I really like everything about it except the flavor. The flavor is good but after the other categories it is a disappointment.

nephirem (109) - CROATIA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours dark ruby, almost black color with practically no head. Smell is mostly roasted malts and coffee. A bit cake-like. Medium body with regular carbonation and a bit watery texture. Taste is mostly bittersweet with bitternes coming mostly from alcohol, giving this beer a slightly boozy aftertaste. Aroma of dark fruits and berries, roasted malts, coffe beans, cake and alcohol. Slightly smoked. Finish is a bit dry with bitternes lingering on the tongue. Overall, very nice.

Originally rated on 7/16/08. Pours a dark body, amber when held to the light, a thin but lasting head. Mouthfeel a little thin but not bad. Aroma was nice, smelled of molasses and plums. Flavor was similar, kind of sweet but not overly so. A pretty good beer.

God og behagelig engelsk porter. Tilpas med bitterhed og sødme. Kan anbefales.

Pours Dark reddish brown, slighty clear, with off-white foamy head. Visually medium carbonation. Aroma: rich malt aroma, which takes on coffee, toffee, dark chocolate, supported with hop aroma in the background, with notes of dark fruits. Flavor is similar: strong malt flavors, which takes on coffee, toffee, with hop flavors in the background. Body is moderate medium, carbonation also, texture is smooth.

1 pint bottle at world of beer for is a very deep brown with reddish tint. Very cool looking green bottle. Aroma of licorice and chocolate. Whitehead dissipates quickly. Full bodied. Definitely an imported feel to a porter.
