Martinsh (1758) - Crewe, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2022 Bottle from Beer 52 – drank at home. Pours almost black with a small cream head. The nose is understated with just some hints of roasted malts and milky coffee. In the mouth there is a basic bitter-sweet sensation to which other flavours keep coming and going. Humbugs, liquorice, dark chocolate and coffee grounds, plus hints of cola and black wine gums. Finish is a little sweeter than the mouthfeel. Very nice – but one to be sipped slowly. Parmenion777 (1505) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2022 330ml bottle - Pours a dark brown almost black colour with an average sized, mostly lasting, foamy tan head. Aroma is dark malts, cocoa powder and coffee. A light dry and chocolatey taste, dark malts, cocoa powder and cold coffee flavours with a moderate semi dry bitter chocolate finish. imdownthepub (22994) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2022 Bottled, 330ml from Beer52, Edinburgh. Virtually black with light brown head. There is a pleasant, smooth roasty character to this from the off, toasted weetabix type flavour with a charry coffee grounds note. Lasting bitterness throughout and a dark smooth roasted cocoa. A really pleasant beer. simontomlinson (4960) - Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2022 Frothy light brown head on a near black body.
Burnt, malt & roasted aroma.
Medium bodied, smooth with a sharper dry clothing back.
Roasted, nutty, burnt, liquorice & citrus tastes with a long bitter finish.
Excellent Porter. radassace (1167) - SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2022 Pours dark. Beige head. Aroma is powdered cocoa, dark fruit, white pepper, light citrus and apricot. Light, soft, dry and bitter. Taste is ground coffee, prune, chocolate powder, white pepper, citrus bitterness, roasted coffee bitterness and tang of apricot. Drinks like a black pils, black ipa and porter all at the same time. Hands up brilliant!
dragnet101 (3050) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2022 Bottle from Beer52. Pours a dark brown with big beige slightly lumpy head. Solid porter aroma of roast, coffee, some berries. Picking up bready notes also. Taste starts roast and coffee then a tangy fruitiness comes in, finishing with brown sugar and burnt bits. Somewhat bitter but its balanced. Just about medium bodied, modest carbonation, easy to drink. I like it. Salian (1673) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2022 Pleasant, slightly generic stout, fruity and roasty with a berry and coffee finish. Odd murky head, but solid. Grumpelmies (1052) - GERMANY - APR 10, 2022
UPDATED: APR 10, 2022 Bottle. Clear dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate and cocoa. Taste of roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa and hints of coffee. Fruity and slightly sour-ish. Dark chocolate bitterness. Low to medium carbonation. Rather thin body. Ok. Monty27 (330) - GERMANY - APR 10, 2022
UPDATED: APR 10, 2022 The description on the bottle as well as the name make you expect a Baltic style porter. However, the bitterness in reality is mostly absent in smell and in taste and the sweetness dominates.. The dark notes are coffee and some liquorice. This goes more in the direction of German Schwarzbier like Köstritzer. Good beer, though there are better Porters. fajry (4049) - Bratislava, SLOVAKIA - MAR 12, 2022
