0,33l fles bij abc beers vandaan de versie met 6,3% en brawling cross hop. Diep Donker zo goed als zwart met een paar kleine bruine deeltjes met een mooie fijne bruine kraag.Geur is even rijk als geballanceerd extra pure chocolade, koek, speculaas en drop.Smaak is mooi bitter.met espresso en 99%pure chocolade in de afdronk blijft het bitter mooi staan. Wat een topper.

Handpump at È clay ,alassio , Italy ... Even if the commercial deScription says that it’s only by bottle I’ve got it from a Handpump .. Anyway .. Very dark with a brown long lasting head .. Chocolate , roasted malts , burnt are predominant but even the hop come out soon ..! Not easy to drink for novice drinkers but a great beer ..

Bottle. "Bramling Cross" hops. Very dark brown to black pour with a large, mostly lasting tan head--looks the goods. The aroma is enticing with a balanced mix of dark malts, burnt characteristics, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and some earthy hop notes. The flavour continues this trend with a lot of bitter cocoa, coffee and dark malts, some dark caramel sweetness, some green earthy hop notes. The palate is light, dry and bitter. On the roasted and bitter porter spectrum, which isn’t a bad thing, I would love to sit in the pub a drink a few pints of this.

Thanks to jercraigs and mabel for this one. Deep brown pour with a thick tan head and a bit of soft sweetness. Earthy and a little bit hoppy. A nice bit of leather and some assertive hoppiness. Leafy and a bit of lingering resin. Lovely brew.

Really well done, classic porter. Nothing extraordinary, but has all of the right elements: roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and fruits lurking underneath. Almost black, with a brown head that lingers with good lacing. Medium, creamy body. Very good.

2014-07-23. Black body with a nice small tan head. 3++ Dry roasty aroma, cocoa whispers. 7++ Flavour is similar, dry roast character with lightly fruity undercurrents, and muted notes of anise. 7++ Smooth average plus bodied palate. 3+ Pretty nice stuff. Bottle from Drinkmonger, Pitlochry

Brune foncée, assez plate. Nez épicée et de café. Forte amertume sèche et résineuse. Saveur épicée et café. Très bonne longueur en bouche. Bière un peu écoeurante quand même.

Shared by martjooolut, thanks! Black beer, brown head. Nose is chocolate, hops, roast, herbal notes. Flavor is roast, bready malt, milk chocolate. Hoppy bitterness in the dry finish. Lingering roast and chocolate. Very nicely balanced.
