UPDATED: NOV 18, 2019 Rich aroma, if not too strong. Sweet caramel, raisins, chocolate.
Deep dark brown, nearly opaque even with a backlight. Tall, thick and creamy milk chocolate colored head that takes its time receding, leaving behind rings of lacing and an uneven bubbly top of the remaining head.
Rich taste as well, dark fruit, chocolate, and smooth initially, with some bitterness coming through in the middle, leading to a relatively dry finish and bitterness lingering on the tongue, along with the very flavorful malt body - again, hints of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and roasted malts.
The body is medium, tending toward substantial, especially for a porter.
Overall, a well-constructed porter. Rich and complex flavor, good body, roasted malts complemented by sweet caramel, raisins, and chocolate, moderated by the hop bitterness. The finish is relatively dry, but with hints of the sweetness remaining.
Top notch. Extremely enjoyable and flavorful. Suco (960) - Castellon, SPAIN - NOV 2, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2019 Color marrón muy oscuro, casi negro, opaca. Dos dedos de espuma beige con excelente retención. Aroma a chocolate negro, café, ligera ceniza y notas herbales. Gusto a chocolate negro, café, nata, caramelo, malta tostada, final de trago dulce y herbal. Cuerpo semioleoso. Porter compleja y muy matizada, me parece una auténtica pasada de birra y con un precio excelente. wetherel (2106) - Cupertino, California, USA - OCT 30, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2019 Bottle from Total Wine in San Jose. Black brown color with light tan foam. Nice malty sweetness with a hint of brown sugar and toastiness. Easy to drink. Very good. badpuppy69 (536) - Orange, California, USA - OCT 21, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2019 From a bottle to a glass. Pours a dark brown with red notes around the edges and a huge tan frothy creamy head. Aroma is dark fruits, bakers chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, brown sugar, slight earthy hops. Taste follows the aroma with a medium to heavy mouthfeel. Excellent Porter!

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2019 I expecting much more things from that 'Porter' and from that 'Brewery' but it seems is not for me.. All beers from them had one specific character inside that trouble me.. They have some kind 'Hoppy' and some extra bitterness and that is not my cup of tea.
Anyway this 'Porter' it taste completely different against the 'Fuller's porter' that is the king of the style.. Is much more bitter than sweet and has more carbonation inside.. Also you can feel less coffe and chocolate here and some kind extra bitterness in the aftertaste.
Overall i can't be objective with that beer and these breweries from 'U.S' that have some extra 'Hoppy' character.. If you like the 'Hoppy' and bitter beers definitely try this one..

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2019 Niemalże czarne, nieprzejrzyste, z obfitą, beżową pianą, która ładnie krążkuje na szkle. Piwo pachnie i smakuje jak porter bałtycki, w aromacie mnóstwo czekolady i suszonych owoców, w smaku pochodzi też kawa i delikatna paloność. Średnie nasycenie, średnia, kawowa goryczka. dannyhill (508) - - AUG 27, 2019
