Bottle at home ... Thanks to Nightfall for this ... deep deep brown ... soft toffee roast malt nose ... soft gentle ... rich roast malt ... quite a lot of toffee ... burnt caramel ... liitle plums ... bit to much burnt sugers for me ... but tasty none the less.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Opaque black porter, moderate carbonation. Bitter coffee start and finish. A little malt in the middle. Okay. Gets easier to drink. An aquired taste.

33cl bottle, Albert, Warsaw. Very dark ruby colour. Good choc/coffee aroma with some freshness too. Velvety in the mouth with no dead feel. Malt has some sweetness, but there is a bit of dryness on the end to balance it. Very pleasant porter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Dark brown, filtered porter with a tan head. Sweet and roasted nose with alcohol, chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Nice. The flavor and finish has too much alcohol, but after all it weighs in at 9.5%, so it is expected. The flavor is roasted and with coffee as well. Full body and a coffee-bitter finish. (060826)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black, with a malty, vinuous nose. It is very dry, roasty and hoppy, with a big alcohol kick, some very burnt raisin flavours. The body is full and firm, and the finish is long and assertively dry.
