liquorice-ish, great aroma and a genuine porter, close to an imperial stout but black albert has set my standards too high.

venom666 (486) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 1, 2015
Jet black color with brown head. Aroma is smoky, like campfire, also roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied. Taste is smoky as well, with woody, coffee, chocolate notes and also herbal hops. Aftertaste is sweet, smoked and bitter with liquorice traces. Very interesting beer.

Classic porter aroma. Scence of chocolate or tobacco. The same taste. Good body but the foam does not remain. Good beer and good product of the porter school.

Very dark brown color, almost completely black, average sized off tan head. Aroma of smoke, dark chocolate, strawberries and coffee. Taste has dark chocolate, smoke and coffee. Medium body, soft carbonation. It lacks body for bigger score but still very nice.

HammerTroll (691) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 12, 2015
Pitch black, big and firm tan head. Nice rosty touch and something else which I couldn’t define. A bit alcohol, but mostly smokey, lots and lots of cocoa, some chocolate, very nice. Chocolate and cocoa bitter finish. Thin body, creamy, soft carbonation.

didierlewallon (203) - ponferrada, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2015
Cerveza de color marrón oscuro con una cabeza de color crema espesa. Aromas a malta tostada, café y notas de chocolate oscuro con humo. En el sabor se notas el ahumado, la malta tostada, la madera y los frutos negros y maduros. El final es ligeramente dulce, con sabores a caramelo y algo amargo. Un Porter muy bien equilibrado, me ha encantado.

Bottle from Choice Beverages. Pours black with a thin dark tan head. The aromas are roasted coffee, chocolate, smoked wood. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and slightly watery with a heavy body and good carbonation. Cheers!
