LazyPyro (593) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
500ml bottle. Almost black colour with a small creamy brown head. Malty caramel aroma, with some smokey/roasted notes. Flavour is roasted malts, caramel, slightly sweet hint of chocolate, maybe some coffee, and some bitterness in the finish. A nice stout/porter whatever you want to call it (label claims Porter).

koshack (1349) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna. W aromacie przyjemne nuty suszonych śliwek. Pachnie wytrawnie. Lekko likierowo. W smaku mocno wytrawne. Wyraźne suszone śliwki. Nuty palone. Ma niezbyt wiele ciała, ale bardzo przyjemnie się pije. Naprawdę dobry porter.

Bottiglia, 500 ml. Colore nero, schiuma che sparisce immediatamente. Al naso malto torrefatto, al palato malto e un pň di caffč. Corpo leggero, carbonazione bassa, molto bevibile. Non cosě strutturata e non cosě "misteriosa" come indicato sull’etichetta, ma una porter nella media.

seritomi (359) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2016
Nagyon szép sötétfekete, barna sűrű habbal. Illata enyhe kávé fanyar, savanykás felhangokkal. Vékony teste miatt jól csúszik és a szénsav mennyisége sem gátol meg abban hogiy hármat igyunk meg belőle... Erősen keserű fémes/hamus utóízzel... Egy jó zab stout és a főzde sörei között az egyik legjobb. Bejön a black boszi!

Black with a creamy head. Aroma of burnt malts and a bit of coffee. Flavour is quite bitter with roasted malts and a touch of charcoal.

it pours a dark brown to black body with a small head that dissapears immediately.the aromas are chocolate,liquorice and coffee.The aroma is not complex but porter like for sure.the taste is acidic (is something wrong with my mouth?), chocolate, coffee and liquor,bitter all the way through with a somehow bittersweet aftertaste.

ha1ag (865) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2015
Bottled from local supermarket. Black color with long-lasting brown head. Smokey nose. Aroma is smokey and roasted malts. Flavour has sweet tones but dominated by strong roast, a bit overdone. Too thin bodied for this flavour.

500ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours a black color forming a solid tan head with medium persistence. Roasted malts in the nose. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate, licorice and grassy hops. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Grassy hops. Medium bitterness. Good bittersweet balance. Good drinkability. Nice beer.
