biir (622) - Berlin, - OCT 9, 2015
Tap @Home, Berlin. According to the barkeeper this is the only place in Germany, where you can drink this. And this beer is a must! Somewhere in between a porter and a BIPA, full of hoppy flavors, great color, great head, rather bitter for a Porter. Excellent.

Fin (9224) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle at Klooster, Netherlands, Thursday 8th October 2015. Pours black with a large tan head. Straddling the divide between a hoppy porter and a BIPA, this beer works very well as itís doesnít lean too much to either of these stykes. This is an easy drinking beer with some light malty touches and a hoppiness (though not excessive) throughout. Good stuff. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

whoisghost (185) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2015
Deep black with a light brown head. An aroma of raisins and leather with some dark chocolate thrown in for good measure. Roasted malts and coffee, with a hoppy/earthy bitterness at the back end. This is actually quite bitter for a porter, itís excellent though. Well carbonated and very smooth on the palate, very silky.
