Bottle from Bierkoenig. Had an excellent pour from the tap at Beer Temple in Amsterdam, the bottle version was a bit disappointing.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Hops: Motueka & Simcoe. Pours black, dark brown, light beige head. Aroma is espresso, coffee, dark chocolate, citrus. Taste packs quite a hoppy punch, combined with roasted, burnt coffee notes. Awesome.

33cl bottle (Chinook, Centennial). Deep brown colour with a thin tan head. Coffee, roasted, dark fruits, molasses, citrus and light oak in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is complex with some bitter coffee and dark chocolate notes but also with some sweet fruity ones. Overall, a very good beer.

Draught at BrewDog Camden on 9 Apr 2012. Poured near black, with a dense beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, citrus, oak and molasses. Full mouthfeel. Coffee in the flavour, with dark malt and dark chocolate. Finish was earth, burnt malt and some grassy hop.

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Keg at BD ShepBush, Simcoe Columbus, 5.9%. Pours clear dark brown, pale tan head that recedes but doesn’t die. Nose of dry ashy roast, resinous hops, some citrus. Tastes light sweet dark caramel, lots of dark coffee, heavy roast, some cacao, big bitterness, lots of resin and floral hop character. Medium body, oily, moderate carb, loooooong resinous hop bitterness with some astringent burnt roast character thrown in. I have no idea whether this is true to the porters sent to India but it tastes like the name suggests it ought to.

Kauge (684) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, Bottledog (hind ca £ 3), 33 cl. Oodata on humalarikast porterit, mida Bottledogi müüja eraldi soovitas. Valades tume-tumepruun, üpris hästi püsiva helebeežika vahuga. Lõhn männine, tsitruseline, samas ka väga õrnalt šokolaadine-kohvine. Kehalt keskmik, tundelt õrn ja sametine (eriti kui natuke niisama seisnud), küllalt vähese karbonisatsiooniga. Sametisusega kokku kõlab hapukas-mõrkjas maitse hästi sümpaatselt. Järelmaik mõrkjas ja linnaseline. Väga hea jook.
