Heickf (48) - - OCT 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Coloração âmbar escuro. No aroma, algo amadeirado. No sabor, uma mistura de frutas secas com madeira, além da presença do lúpulo. Paladar seco e de média duração. Bem balanceada entre amargor e dulçor. Recomendo.

leosanches (33) - - APR 25, 2015
Cerveja acobreada, translúcida e de aparência convidativa. Espuma presente e marrom. O aroma traz toques rústicos e é levemente frutado. O sabor é clássico das Porters, com amargor destacado, drinkability mediana devido à forte presença do álcool e aftertaste seco e amargo. O toque frutado do aroma não se evidencia tanto no sabor em decorrência do amargor pronunciado, o que compromete um pouco o equilíbrio da cerveja. O pálato é agradável, faltando pouco para alcançar a envolvência perfeita. Uma boa Porter, porém pouco complexa e muito seca.

LeandroBibi (30) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2015
Marrom avermelhado lindíssimo. Aroma intenso de caramelo e algum herbal vindo do lúpulo. No sabor, malte e lúpulo equilibram muito bem deixando um retrogosto levemente adocicado. Muito boa!

jjsint (1223) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at the Priory Centre, St Neots. Dark copper/light brown. A fair bit of forced off-white head. Bready scent with very slight hints of stone fruits. Bittersweet taste, with caramel malt to the fore. Finish has a mire pronounced bitterness. Similar to the cask version but stripped of the subtleties.

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very clear dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose seems to have quite a few grains coming through, and only a little grassiness on the nose. Taste is pretty light and only very slightly bitter, and hints of toasted caramel. OK, but nothing great.

Dohny (299) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 16, 2015
Bottled. Clear brown color with small off white head. Aroma of prunes, honey. Light body, lively carbonated. Light sweet malty beginning with moderate fruity esters with dry finish and assertive bitterness. Some metalic tones in flavor. Easy to drink.
