Gangstergafje (1184) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
The beer looks like a beautiful porter. The color is pith black, with a dark almond foam head. The foam tends to collapse quickly, but a nice drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is nice, bt a little mild. I mell some delicious roasted barley, giving aromas of coffee, chocolate and salted caramel. There is a lovely combination between salty aromas, roasty bitterness and sweet chocolate. The same applies for the taste. There is a delicious salted caramel flavour, which is quite unique for a ’regular porter’. I haven’t encountered it a lot. It.s in perfect balance with the darker roast flavours. It sure reminds me of a stormy port: a stormy dark bitterness together with a salty sea flavour. An excellent porter.

Przyjemnie pachnie, jest kawa, jest czekolada, jest lekki karmel. W smaku jest lekko, to w końcu nieco ponad 5 procent alkoholu. Przyjemna kawa i czekolada w smaku bez nadmiernej karmelowej słodyczy. Dobra rzecz, kolejny "nudny" w Polsce styl, który u nas się szybko nie przyjmie.

Barwa ciemno brunatna do czarnej, średnio wysoka, zbita piana. W aromacie mleczna czekolada, kawa. Oleista tekstura, w smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, na finiszu popiół. Ogólnie całkiem niezłe.

MrTipple (5492) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Toasted malts, milky americano coffee, dark chocolate, dry cacao. Hazy, very dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Toasted malts, some light coffee, light sweet grain malts, dark bread, soft carbonation, lightly bitter in the finish. Nice Porter, would love to try this on cask as its too fizzy for me. Keg at The Black Sheep, Dublin.
