paulvanpelt (524) - Reusel, - SEP 25, 2013
Een bijna zwart bier met een stevige, mokka schuimkraag. Aroma van geroosterde mouten, as, koffie. Doet wat hartig, bijna zoutig aan. Smaak is droog, bitter. Zacht in de mond, laag tot medium levendig koolzuur, medium body.

Ysok02 (918) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2016
Robe brune, belle mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez fumé, légère note de café au lait, noisette, et une touche houblonnée. Bouche à l’attaque finement acidulée, belle note fumée, bulle élégante et finale crémeuse mais fraîche. Un porter plus complexe, une bière de méditation.

alomtnez (335) - SPAIN - AUG 10, 2016
Creamy brown head very long lasting. Very dark brown colour, almost black appearance. Aroma is cocoa, roasted and toasted malt. Taste is cocoa and some bitterness, mainly at the finish. A very well balanced porter.

leghorn99 (219) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 1, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore marrone scuro, quasi nero; schiuma color kaki, abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Al naso presenziano: malto tostato, insieme con aromi di caffè, pane fresco scuro, cioccolato fondente e tabacco. In bocca rispetta le aspettative: pane tostato, pancetta affumicata, liquirizia; note di frutta secca, asciutta ed un amaro pronunciato. Ancora leggere note di cioccolato, caffè e tostature; corpo medio-pieno, discreta carbonazione.

Pours an opaque dark ruby brown colours with two finger of light brown head. Lacing clinging to the side of the glass. Smokey aroma with notes of espresso. Taste matches the aroma. Not as dry and bitter as your usual porter. Light body with moderate carbonation.
