COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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...

Interesting aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. The taste is however very thin. Bad for such an aroma.

Taste is smooth when carbonation flats, rich, coffee, roasty notes, moderate bitterness, some liquor notes. Very enjoyable.

Grzesiek79 (3199) - 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

ShivanDragon (1575) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
zwart met minimale witte kraag aroma van goede chocolade, moutig, zoet, koffie. smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, sterk, redelijk moutig (geroosterde en gebrande), koffie medium body, dun van textuur, lage co2, vrij dun bier over het algemeen. redelijke koffie, echte Engelse Porter, met een vollere body was deze een stuk beter geweest
