Diabobale (429) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - OCT 23, 2015
Di colore nero impenetrabile, con un cappello di schiuma abbondantissimo, persistente e di color cappuccino, questa porter inglese rilascia ottimi sentori di malto prima e poi di cioccolato fondente, fave di cacao e caffč, con alcune note erbacee e resinose di fondo, forse un po’ spinte quelle di citriche. Al palato ha un bel corpo nella media e non č troppo carbonata. Cosě che a bevuta č facile e veloce. In bocca, tuttavia, ritroviamo le note dell’olfatto, ma piů decise, con il caffč a imporsi sul cioccolato fondente. Il finale č amaro, resinoso e prolungato. Bevuta piacevole.

KW92 (1047) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 24, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste z rubinowymi refleksami. Piana drobna, wysoka, bardzo obfita.
AROMAT: Dość intensywny. Na pierwszym planie praliny czekoladowe, rodzynki, owoce leśne (jagoda) oraz inne owoce (świeża morela). W tle spora dawka zboża (jęczmień), kawa.
SMAK: Z początku mega owocowe. po chwili czuć zboża, a końcówka jest z kolei łagodnie kawowa. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Porter w nowofalowym wydaniu. Lubie to! Wiele cech wspólnych z Black IPA.

Alengrin (4076) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2015
At GBF. Thin, beige head over a very dark burgundy reddish beer, almost black. Rich and attractive aroma of dried plums, burnt wood, dried citrus peel, ashes, touch chocolate; dried fruits in the mouth, caramelly with an ashy, roasted bittering edge but softly so, aromatic floral and light citrussy hops in the finish. Great porter - as expected from this brewery, I hasten to add.
