phfyysik (704) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours black with beige medium head. Aroma is nuts, caramel, some hay, milk chocolate, cream, some toast. Taste is bitter, juicy, tropical fruits, some sourness, coffee roast, cocoa, burned bread. Feels firstly fresh and easy/watery, but burned aftertaste lasts forever. Nice beer!

thirstyrabbit (1740) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle. The label calls this a Porter. Dark body, small head. Aroma has mild milk chocolate. Sweet mildly roasty taste with medium sweet milk chocolate. Hops feel slightly metallic. Far from being complex or memorable. The main problem is that it’s too thin, otherwise it’s somewhat drinkable. Standard macro stout, not going to dissect it any further.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 19, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, fekete szín. Illata pörkölt malátás, halvány csokoládéval, és egy kis fűszerességgel. Pörkölt malátás, csokis ízvilág, némi aszalt gyümölcsös beütéssel. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Tisztességesen összerakott sör, kissé szegényes ízvilággal.

tanobicho (2) - Montevideo, URUGUAY - SEP 6, 2016 does not count
500 ml. bottle imported from England. Roasty, chocolate and some licorice aroma, not that intense at least in a goblet glass. Black with tan foam, some foam residue (ok for an industrial I’d say). Taste is kind of creamy with light sweetness and medium bitterness, considerably sour. It has a bitter finish that considerably lasts. Nice one!

Berna (16) - Buenos aires, ARGENTINA - SEP 6, 2016
Dark brown color, almost black with beige creamy foam. Medium head retention with some lacing. Light aroma of toasty malt and chocolate. Also some alcohol and slightly some dms. Flavor toast, roast, chocolate, bread crust, nuts, alcohol (liquor). Citrusy hop character that continuos on in aftertaste with toast and alcohol finishing lightly acid. Medium light body with medium carbonation. Complex taste but alcohol is too strong, and bitter acidic toasty finish is not very pleasant.

It has every bit of bitterness you would expect in this style with a second kick of bitterness in the after taste

janubio (705) - SPAIN - AUG 27, 2016
Pours a medium head with a brown head that takes a good while to fade, leaving a compact brown lace. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, dried fruits. No coffee. Medium body,c reamy palate, correct carbonation. Taste of licorice, chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, burned notes. Good stout, maybe body is a bit light.

TomBitter (13) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Poured a very dark, almost black colour with nice roasted coffee aromas. Good bitter finish with a dark chocolate and coffee flavour, very tasty. Aftertaste is gloriously bitter and almost vanilla like in flavour, a very drinkable beer and certainly one of the best from Wychwood, definitely worth a try if you like your porters, in my opinion it’s one of the best.
