erickok (5095) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2016
Flimsy head, nice dark body. Very harsh toasted aroma, but quite weak. Bit watery tbh. Good bitterness, lasting. Ups and downs. I like it, but I don’t consider it very good. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

sir__v (1859) - Lille, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: roasted malt, black bread, and mocha with coffee notes. Superb balance. Taste: medium body with roasted malt and caramel notes, balanced with superb mocha taste coffee domination. Good attenuation and super drinkable. Aftertaste: black chocolate and chocolate beans. Amazing !

berkshirejohn (5821) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. An opaque peaty brown pour with a thin beige head; aroma of brown sugar; thin in the mouth with a roasted coffee taste, some demerara sugar and caramel; and a rather thin and bitter (coffee dreg) finish. Not a great porter.

330ml bottle. Sweet and smoky taste - quite ’moreish’ and you can tell the ingredients are fresh and of good quality. Nice mouthfeel too.

mariuspoenari (1203) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with a medium-height fine-grained tan head. Smells of dark cherries, roasted malts, cold coffee and dark chocolate. The taste follows the same notes. Medium to light body and a cherry bitter aftertaste. A classic porter.

Bit of caramel, roasted, chocolate, coffee, some fruits notes, deep brown with a thin tan head quite persistant, medium body, law carbonation, taste of coffee and chocolate, some smoked, light sweetness with a bitter final, roasty and dry...the perfect tempest in my glass.
