Bardzo dobry porter. Ładna, biała piana. Mały lacing. Tworzy obwolutę. Barwa czarna z prześwitami. Aromat bardzo przyjemnej wędzonki i wędzonej śliwki, dodatkowo nuty ogniska. W smaku słodkie, czekoladowe, wędzonkowe, karmelowe z tyłu. Niskie nasycenie. Gładkie. Świetnie ułożone. Bardzo smaczne.

geurend naar Worschester sauce
met een smaak van wisky met rookmout
redelijk droge afdronk
aparte smaak niet lekker
had misschien te jong gedronken maar dan moest er nog een hoop gebeuren voor een goede porter koleminer20 (3591) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a darker brown with a thicker cap of light tan head and a couple spots of lace as it falls. The aroma is all smoke. There is a hint of roasted malt and a light chocolate, but the chocolate dominates it. I don’t like it. The flavor is much of the same. Heavy smoke, light chocolate malt and a hint of matallic. Ugh. The mouth feel is thinner and slick with a hint of brighter carbonation and a lingeringly smoky and roasted malt finish. No thanks.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. For the book. Aroma is bonfire, smoked meats, roasted malt, maybe some wood, decent. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, poured thin. Taste is super smoky, roasted malt, burned wood, bacon, burned toast, just plain burned. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, smoky wood aftertaste. Overall, it is what it’s advertised. Nephilium (1818) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2017
(2013 Vintage) Rich smokey aroma, with some underlying roast notes. Pours a dark ruby red with a thin light tan head. Roasted notes are the predominant flavor, pairing nicely with a smokey finish. Lighter bodied then you may expect, this is a fantastic smoked porter, and could work as a nice introduction to smoked beers. Kita (2147) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle, 0,65l, shared with my colleagues. Pitch black color with thin creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of smoke, leather, roasted malt and chocolate. Taste starts with medium sweet roasted malt and chocolate, follows by smoked ham, leather and rubber, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is mild bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Aged for few years, drank in few minutes...
