BBD: 8/15/17

2015 BJCP Category: 13C English Porter

AROMA: Moderately sweet nose with notes of milk chocolate and caramel. Dark malt, but nothing roasty. Slight butter note. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown with light brown highlights (25-35 SRM). Clear body. Small white foam which retains and laces pretty well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Plenty of brown/dark malt throughout. Milk chocolate flavor initially, though transitions into a coffee/roasted malt taste on the backend. Bitterness is moderate and offers balance. Slight caramel and nutty tastes on the finish and into the aftertaste. Palette is a bit simple, though age of bottle may be cause for this. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Smooth texture; easy to drink. Feels much lighter than 5.4% ABV, and tempting as a session beer. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Enjoyable and fun to drink. Usually world class when fresh. 8/10

TOTAL SCORE: 39/50

Paladares (230) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 4, 2017
Botella. Negra opaca. Bien de espuma que se desvanece r�pidamente y deja una fina capa. Aroma muy achocolatado. Agradable. En boca, extremadamente cremosa. Entra con un ligerisimo toque amargo y el postgusto es mucho m�s suave, a caramelo. Para saborear despu�s de la comida. Sin ser una maravilla se disfruta.

puren (1142) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 31, 2017
PREZENTACJA: bardzo ciemno brązowe z rubinowymi przebłyskami, bardzo obfita żółtawa piana spokojnie opada do grubej warstwy z meniskiem wklęsłym, nie oblepia ścianki;
AROMAT: bardzo ulotny - żelazo, paloność, rum, rodzynki, cukier trzcinowy, karmel, odrobina pumpernikla;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, wysoko nasycone, lekko ściągające;
SMAK: delikatny - palony, niska palona goryczka;
OGÓLNIE: słabiutko, oj słabiutko, po takich ocenach spodziewałem się dużo więcej; i aromat, i smak są delikatne, ulotne i w dodatku jednowyrazowe; mój egzemplarz chyba się trochę (na szczęście) utlenił, gdyby nie to to kompletnie byłby wyprany z zapachu.

PanMarek (460) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Dark opaque pour with some red around the edges. Thick, cream beige foam. Rich caramel, roasted malt in the nose. Chocolate comes out in the flavor. Very rich, creamy texture. Heavy body and very light fizz. The hops provide a background piney bitterness. The finish is on the dry end.

Davros IX (381) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle at home while preparing dinner. Poured beautifully with a pretty and long-lasting head and an aroma of toasted malt that augured well for the beer itself. The taste was all toasted malt and was almost sensuous in the mouth. A really long-lasting flavour and a pleasure to drink. I can see why this scores so well and I know that it is a beer that I will revisit.

Nikokaoja (299) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2017
20. 7. 2017, Ljubljana w/ Vike. Bottled. Very creamy coffeelike mouthful feel. Nicely carbonized, flavour of roasted malts, evenly balanced with hops bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
