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...

Grzesiek79 (3775) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Jako taki porter, 10 roznych slodow namieszalo tak ze trudno to wychwycic. Piwo za to ladnie wyglada. Ciemne, wrecz prawie czarne z lekkim rubinowym malenkim przeswitem. Piwo z niewielka piana jakby szarawego koloru, glebia a zarazem lekki smak. Tresciwosc srednia. Palonosc niewielka i slodycz umiarkowana. Ogolnie moglo bardzij byc wyraziste. Koncowka przejemna i najciekawsza z tej degustacji bo po przelknieciu przyjemna lekka goryczka i konkretna wytrawnosc

lembeek (143) - ITALY - APR 10, 2014
Tonaca di frate, com schiuma abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Aroma di malti tostati, con sfumature di caffè, fave di cacao e vaniglia. Nel palato ha un attacco morbido e una buona acidità, il finale è secco e amaro.
