3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piękny aromat mlecznej czekolady, gorzkiego kakao i zbożowej kawy. Świetna piana i nieprzejrzysta czerń.
W smaku lekko kwaskowate od słodów, z mocno czekoladową bazą, aksamitne, lekko mleczne. Na finiszu fajna, lekka goryczka.
Bardzo dobre, nieprzesadzone w żadną stronę piwo.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black colour, small brown head, very good lacing. Nose is very intensive dark chocolate and coffee. Mouth is quite gentle, not too roasty, dominated by intensive liquorice. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Light carbonation, medium body. Not bad, but not the kind of porter I like.

After a long day this was a pleasant surprise. Not as powerful as I thought it should be based on the claim, but it was within range and otherwise a great experience

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Bountiful, well-fuelled inch and a half of satin sheened, cappuccino foam atop an inky black body. Kelp and sautéed nori slivers greet the nose with underlying hints of roasted carob, roasted mushroom, Marmite and kecap manis - interesting!
And theni it’s gone. Chalky, carbonate palate; quite soft and mellow with little carbonation and a smooth finish. Again the nori dominates with enough roast, bitter burnt malts to crack the code. Length is all roasted, charred malts, but so subdued. Feels restrained. Hops and ginger didn’t make the party. Average stuff! (50cL, BBE 03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 500mL bottle (best before June 2015). Nearly black with full tan head. Aroma of light chocolate, soy sauce, and vegetable. Taste starts sweet malty lactose with mild licorice and a very subtle ginger undertone and noticeably becomes roast coffee with chocolate notes following the finish. The balance is quite nice and there’s some subtle complexities hidden in there, but it’s a wee bit on the thin side in terms of body for a porter.
