Dashimus (235) - London, Greater London, - FEB 28, 2013
Pours very dark brown with a very thin beige head which dissipates extremely quickly. Aroma is strong coffee, BBQ sauce, smoke, toffee and caramel. Taste is smoked meat, cold coffee, caramel and a light bitterness. For a porter, is disappointingly thin bodied and seems watered down. Short to medium bitter finish.

rand (1570) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Can 330 ml / Bier-Bienne (CH). Almost black beer with an average brown head. Immediate smoked aromas, roasted, chocolate, caramel with note of licorice. The taste is roasted with a typical smoked beech wood. There is raisin, caramel and molasses rocked by a resinous hop. Nice.

Gerbeer (3411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2017
330 ml can. Pours a very dark brown with huge head. Aromas of lightly smoked malts, dark almost sour fruit, and chicory. Flavors follow same with smokiness well integrated and not prime. Well balanced and tasty. Great stuff.

herrklemann (142) - AUSTRIA - FEB 8, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2017 Draft at Flann O?Brien Graz. Small, creamy, beige head. Body is dark brown with a dark amber hue. Aroma of smoke, blackberry, roasty coffee, wood. Taste is straight forward, lightly sweet with light bitterness. Creamy, light-to-medium body, with soft carbonation. Notes of dark berries, mixed with smoke and roasty malts. Not as smoky as its Austrian competitor Bevog Ond, lighter on the hops as well. Very smooth.

thejackpacker (199) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Does what it says on the tin, a smoked proter, very smoked. It is darker than the german Aecht but not hugely different save the classic chocolate porter notes

DuffMan (9912) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2017
Can, from minutemat-- thanks! Dark brown with amber highlights and a light brown head. Roast and smoke dominate, but in equal balance. Smokey character is more campfire/burnt toast in nature. Medium bodied, roasty bitter finish.

BenL8 (114) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Very intense and smokey smoked porter. Aroma is just pure smoke, dark malts and some hints of liquorice. Very intense. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Flavour is also creamy and smooth, smoke not as intense as the aroma. Very nice!

Lata 33 cl de 1420 Len. (r463). Lote 1015 BB 11..10..17 tomada en Belmonte 15..01..2017. Color negro intenso brillante con espuma beige oscuro Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados suaves con herbaceos y amargos algo resinosos al final. Tostados algo torrefactos y ahumados. Cuerpo ligero fcil de beber liquido. Bastante buena Para repetir sin duda.

rodsquad (107) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Can from Oddbins Rosemount. Black with thick foam caramel-tan head. Aromas of blackcurrant, gentle whiff of whisky cask, floral lavender and chocolate. Taste is initially strong. Starting with malty molasses then mellowing through an espresso, caramel and dark chocolate spectrum leaving a smoky aftertaste. It has a soft and thick sensation with a gentle sparkle to lighten the body. This drink starts bold and strong with its flavours and mellows to a mocha-like burnt around the edges finish. A luxuriously strong porter from Beavertown.
