beeebon (404) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Pours very dark with tan head, aroma of pine, coffee, toast, leafy and slight leather. Medium sweet and bitter, complex and lingering taste. Light carbonation providing just enough kick to bring everything through. Thin though slightly oily texture. A fantastic Porter!

At Maakun’s. Shared bottle. Sweet roasted chocolate malts. Fruity hops, light oranges, vanilla, chocolate. Light sweet, light bitter. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel. Bit watery body, very light carbonation. Very nice but prefer these flavors on a heavier body.

Maakun (4062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost black with quite big fluffy light brown head that leaves lots of lacing. Lots of citrus hops up front with lime and a little bit of lemon. Lychee, cocoa powder, light coffee notes, some grass and chalk, toffee, brown bread. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Almost medium bodied with fine sparkling carbonation. Nice.

IlGagario (115) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 4, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore bruno impenetrabile con fioco riflesso rosso, molto scuro. Meravigliosa testa, alta e soapy, da beige a marrone chiaro, di buona persistenza, piccante e amara. Intenso naso maltato, dolce e mediamente speziato, caratterizzato anche da note di lievito. Carbonazione soffice e leggermente fitta. Superlativo aroma dolce di malto scuro, terroso e speziato, parzialmente tostato con qualche picco leggermente piccante, caffelatte decisamente scorrevole irrobustito con un po’ cioccolato, liquirizia, qualche nota di caramello secco e speziato. Gusto inizialmente dolce e lattico, poi frizzante e amaro da medio a pieno, con picchi di rabarbaro. Finale setoso, di lievito e fine malto tendente ad una secchezza incompleta. La maltatura è davvero intrigante e complessa. Corpo medio con alcool nascosto molto bene, ma comunque presente nel corso della beva. Trama da lattica a croccante. Dopo beva lattico che lascia le fauci gradevolmente umide. Una porter da esportazione, non così leggera e non così accessibile, sufficientemente solida e di favolosa struttura aromatica, complessa e ammaliante, meravigliosamente scorrevole. Una vera delizia.
