jbruner (5289) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Its back on tap and hopefully here to stay. Pours a thick brownish-black on tap with frothy tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted and toasted malts, slight bitter chocolate. Taste follows with great lingering coffee flavor and slight piney back end. Really good porter that is surprisingly easy to drink for the abv.

BlazerT (1253) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Pitch black with moderate, light brown, semi-densed head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma are mostly roasted malts - chocolate, cocoa and a little coffee. Also very nice dark fruits profile, along with some mineral notes, just a slight coffee acidity. Medium body, texture is creamy, silky, carbonation is soft, finish is chocolate, light to moderately roasted. Really balanced and drinkable with great mouthful.

Bottle shared by Pilsnertest, many thanks! Pours very dark brown with dirty, white head. Chalky aroma and taste with bits of chocolate, wood, scorched earth and a bit of liquorice. Pretty light and watery, lacks complexity.

From the Christmastime BIF Swap. Tricyclist supplied the 650 mL bottle. Thanks!
Cola-dark brown liquid allows a haughtily manhandled sandy-beige flour-clump to perch atop as burnt bread, walnuts, sorghum molasses, toasted dates, blueberry leaves, used medium-roast coffee grounds, and sweat aromas erupt from within to a greater, visibly interested audience.
Good charcoal balance. A little fiery by its hot mid-palate. Almond milk chocolately sultriness accompanied with just-hit bong water, grilled apples, birch bark, and graham flour experienced most prominently at swallow. Menacingly swishable, and deadly. After the fourth swig I was feeling unquestionably hammered.
Nice and firm like a pair of tits, but it was hard to continue when I felt just so incredibly inebriated by only a couple drinks alone.

One of the best porters I’ve had. I went to another site and they were like oh I poured at 44 degrees and into a fucking blah blah blah. It’s a GOOD FUCKING BEER! That’s all that matters, right!

ciocanelu (2957) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 17, 2017
Really dark brown color with brown head. Aroma is nice and fudgy with sweet chocolate and dark malts. Taste follows with dark chocolate and roasted malts, really balanced and easy drinking. Light body but really smooth on the palate. Overall it’s a really good porter, soft and tasty.
