4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0.5. Porter - comprising a mixture of malted barley, oats and burnt chocolate malt, hops and lots of ginger. Porter does not look like Russian (Baltic, Athanasius) - it is dry, no sweet aftertaste, aroma of coffee and hops. Foam - a thick, resistant, chocolate.

500ml bottle, pours black with a small tan head, chocolate and roast malt aroma, hints of plum with a bit of spice, finish is balanced and moderate bitter, carbonation average, nothing too complex, but certainly not disappointed. Very good porter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle at home. Pours near black, 1cm off-white head that lasts pretty well. Coffee, chocolate and metallic aromas, subtle ginger if you search for it. A herbal note coming out as it slips down. Taste has a roasted bitterness and chocolate-to-toffee sweetness. Liquorice coming through on the aftertaste. Medium body, little thin, average carbonation. Decent bitter finish. Nice.

Shared a 500ml bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a really dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma is tasted, coffee, nuts and dough. Medium to low carbonation and medium oily body. Flavour starts with medium bitter and ends quite dry. Overall a nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12C. Dark brown with a fat cap of light tan head. Aroma is roasty with spicy chocolate. Very smooth texture, lowish carbonation and that silkiness that often comes with oats. Really very sweet and round chocolate and roasted barley flavours, quite a lot of ginger which eventually chipped away at the rather wearing sweetness.

Dobry porter, ciemny, wlasciwie czarny i gesty. Ze srednia piana, W smaku czekolada i lekka palonosc owsianego slodu. Przyprawa imbiru jakos sie gubi w tej gestosci, aczkolwiek lekko ja wyczuwam w zapachu.
