A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Bottle. Rather crisp for a porter, tastes like roasted cookies with blueberry and chocolate filling. Which means it’s rather pleasant.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. Dark brown to black in colour with a swirl of tan foam. Quite a lot of maltiness, enjoyable.

minutemat (3729) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours black with tan head. Decent chocolatly porter, expected more of a malty texture but it’s a decent taste with a thin roasted character.

5% ABV. Porter. Nice thick light brown head, hangs around just long enough to whet the appetite. Nose is so fragrant you can smell it across the table, full of malty umami promise. Sweet tang of alcohol. Very complex first mouthful. Lightly carbonated, enough to be entertaining without being silly. There is a pleasant even-tempered and even good natured greeting featuring hints of charcoal, with some sweet flavor notes that are reminiscent of burnt ends. Well balanced malty body that is not sweet, not cloying, not sour...well-balanced. The palate finishes off with a hint of rice. Overall a very restrained effort producing a clean, amazingly interesting complex of flavors, palates and tongue textures. Wasn’t going to ruin this wonderful ride by making a reference to Minoh Stout, but will have to because my unconscious palate keeps telling me to. SWB’s Teleporter stands on its own. Going on my favorites list.

Bamsen78 (4811) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2014
Draught @ Øllets Dag 2014, Kolding. Pours hazy dark coffee brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and caramel malt, with touches of yeast. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of liquorice. Lingering bitter finish. Okay.

Near-black beer with a thin head. Light toasted malt aroma. Flavour follows suit with a light, fruity edge to it.
