Bottle from greystones, Sheffield. Weak smoky aroma. Entirely opaque, black colour, with a thin creamy head. Really delicious smoky flavour. Heavily carbonated, spoils the palate slightly.

Buongiorgio00 (764) - - APR 26, 2014
Porter cremosa con un gusto ricco e intenso, dominato dal caffè e dall’affumicatura persistente, con note di cioccolato, malti tostati e un tocco di liquirizia. Davvero speciale.

TET (1643) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
A colablack beer with a beautiful light brown and big head. The nose is strongly roasted, some salt liquirice and smoke, also coffee. Good aroma that is surprisingly fresh. Taste is strongly roasted that is balanced with a nice sweetness and the overall taste is not too dry, some chocolate, hint of bready malts. Medium bodied, quite smooth carbonation. Succesfully Porter, nice balance despite of strong roastiness.

500ml bottle. Darkest brown, quasi black colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty and slightly smoky dark malty aroma, hints of ham and ashes. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, slightly smoky, a touch of malt lozenge, subtle malt sweetness, a mineral touch.

50 cl bottle.Thanks lusikka!
Pours dark red-brown color, small off-white head. The first thing on the nose is charcoal from a overly grilled sausage, smoke and burnt malts, some wood and faint peat also. Malty and burnt flavor, ham and some caramel. Unique and quite tasty.
