beerman89 (38) - Greater London, - JAN 6, 2013
Interesting and complex. Aroma is hoppy with some coffee, licorice and tropical fruits. There is some strawberry sauce in there somewhere. The taste is immediately bitter espresso and chocolate, with the hops and tropical fruits trying to push through but the coffee dominates. There is a bitter finish with a slightly sweet, candy like aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Unique, and very nice!

anstei (1227) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from Beers’n’more. A smooth porter with a focus and drinkability and balance. As such, the dark malts are pleasantly simple but decent (chocolate, some nuts, a bit toasted, hints of ripe dark fruit), the body medium with support of a soft carbonation and a light bitterness. Aroma hops are notable on the palate. Very round. Great beer.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bottled 03/2016 - shared at bastarda’s Post-Baltikum tasting Sep 2016, terviseks! - Some Grand Manier fumes hovering over a rich and satisfying Viennese coffee aroma, cocoa powder and earthy Jaffa cakes. Dry, hoppy with fragrant orange peel bitters and resins, quenching the roasted malt sugars, ending on some char and bitter chocolate. Luscious pillowy smooth and suave mouthfeel.

ATulloch (222) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Deeside drinks emporium. Pours a jet black with a toffee coloured head. Aromas of cold pressed coffee, wood smoke and a slight bitterness. Flavour is again coffee with bitter dark chocolate and burnt crusty bread. Lovely porter.

romanstep (272) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
W nosie średnio intensywnie, kawa, czekolada, pumpernikiel, w tle leciutkie tropiki. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste, piana beżowa, wysoka, gęsta. W smaku dość wytrawne, mnóstwo kawy i wytrawnej czekolady, na dalszym planie czarna porzeczka i lekki cytrus. Świetna kompozycja, amerykańskie chmielenie subtelnie uzupełnia klasyczny styl portera. Podsumowując takie portery to ja mogę codziennie. Chmiele: chinook, centennial, simcoe. Butelka do 21.12.2016

dysenteri (151) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2016
33 cl bottle, 5,8% ABV. This one is with Amarillo, Chinook & Sticklebract hops. Black with beige/brown head that stays afloat a long time. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, plum, a bit of citrus, earthy. Light sweet, a heavy dry bitterness comes kicking in after a while, and that lingers out slow slow in your whole mouth, ie a long finish. Pretty light body, thin creamy texture with lively carbonation. Lovely porter with no apparent flaws, one of the best i’ve tried.

gegwilson (3278) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. Mosaic hopped. Pours black with a big beige head. Nice coffee aroma with some hoppy pine coming through. The taste has nice gentle pine to start with before lots of coffee and chocolate pudding comes through. There’s a touch of spice and some biscuit too. Very tasty.

spechtacular (62) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Barwa cemnobrunatna, piana beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat bardzo bogaty: kawa, czekolada, prażone słody, orzechy. W smaku również przede wszystkim ciemna czekolada, kawa i prażoność. Odczucie w smaku bardzo kremowe, ciało średnie w stronę wysokiego. Nuty zapachowe i smakowe bardzo wyraźne.
