Fules (1341) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - NOV 30, 2016
Pici, gyorsan eltűnő hab, vöröses árnyalatú fekete szín. Illata pörkölt malátás, fekete csokis, halvány aszalt gyümölcsösséggel. Pörkölt malátás, csokis ízvilág, finoman belesimuló aszalt gyümölcsös aromákkal, hosszú, pörkölt malátás lecsengéssel. Közepes keserűjét a pörkölés adja. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas. Nagyon jó egyensúllyal rendelkező, nagyon finom sör.

Bozo_skeleton (1164) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 24, 2016
Noire dense, petit collet dense de fines bulles. Aromes puissants, chocolat noir, caramel, cafe, liqueur Plutot mince mais les malt rotis tapissent genereusement le palais pour une finale longue amere et un peu seche.

labeerinthum (1024) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 22, 2016
On tap @ IBF Pub Edition 2016, Milano. Il gusto al naso rintraccia liquirizia, orzo tostato e caffè. Il cappello dal colore marrone castagno è di schiuma compatta, cremosa, aderente ed ha una buona tenuta. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. Al piano inferiore il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è strutturato non pesante. La struttura è di spessore. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe. Il finale è lungo, secco, pulito e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, biscotto, agrumi, caffè e liquirizia.

MaltOne (380) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Pours dark, opaque black-brown, with a creamy, coffee tinted head. Aroma is dark roasted grains, chocolate, slightly sweet. Taste carries the aroma features, with a finish of dark toast. Palate is has a richness without being heavy, or cloying. Overall a well balanced porter, with extremely drinkable.

MelvinKalksma (1687) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Sadly, the aroma is nowhere near as intense. Almost a smokey flavour, but it misses hops to get this completely carved in stone. Great and deliciously tasting beer overall.
