COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like "El Padrino" this beer is strong, reliable, smooth, and always looking out for you. Loaded with a wide variety of malts the result is a dark, smooth and truly drinkable porter. The hops are subtle but they let you know they are present.

Slutty porter. Slick with bitter chocolate and a little roast. A mouthful without being overpowering. Dries out on the finish and this gives the beer some structural balance.

R4N5H (1288) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 On tap at CatBar, Barcelona on 31-Aug-2017. Dark brown, close to black in colour with a medium sized beige head which settles down quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, cocao nibs and coffee. Full body and soft/medium carbonation. Taste is malt, bitter dark chocolate, dark fruits and a pinch of coffee. A pretty smooth porter.

Keg at Mad Squirrel, Wycombe. Black with a thick beige head. Lots of chocolate set against equally plentiful roasty malt. Simple but bloody good and bloody tasty. Perfect balance, incredibly drinkable (terrifyingly so for the high abv) and very more-ish. Loving it. Yay!

faroeviking (11084) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 18, 2017
Botella. Deep dark brown colur, beige medium fairly well lasting head. Chocolate cacao sweet aroma with dark malt. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with chocolate and dark fruit along dark malt, softly roasty. Bit thin body but good.

From 32 Great Power. In Teku glass. At dinner, with pizza + Playing 8 Bit Commando. Very roasted, with noticeable coffee and some chocolate notes. Nice but a bit more torrefact than I would like. 2 months before bbf date. Close to imperial porter

330ml bottle from Simply Basic supermarket, Barcelona (€3.50):
Quite a nice Spanish brewed porter & another cracking beer from Edge despite the fact it’s probably not the best style of beer to be drinking in the warm weather but is was still an enjoyable one. There was a nice malt bitterness to proceedings with a couple of hops sneaking through in the early going, mainly on the nose but some did show in the taste as well, albeit to a lesser extent. There was some solid roasted flavours with the odd alcohol grain appearing at times but it wasn’t an overly strong beer which meant it was a relatively easy one to drink & one of the better Spanish beers I’ve tried of late, although that’s not always saying too much I guess.
