jaghana (3819) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle 33cl from Altonbrownd thanks a lot. A dark and deep beer with huge brownish head and good structure, good lacing too. Nose is on dark chocolate and coffee. Aroma is very toasted and coffee like, creamy, nice bitter chocolate notes, finish is malty too, not acrid, hints of smoked malt, a well done porter properly brewed.

maneliquor (3068) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A nice black pour with a very rich and foamy off tan head. Great lacing. Nose was charred malts, chocolate and tar. I can tell its not going to be my kind of porter. Comes together a little better in the taste. Lots of burnt caramel malts and smoked notes throughout. Heavy chocolate in there to. I can see why a lot of people like this one but it isn’t for me
