ComradeK (1197) - Sydney, - JUN 21, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tiny beige head, which neither lasts well nor leaves much lacing. Bitter coffee and dark chocolate malt notes mix with a slight charry scent to create the aroma. Very mild herbal and citrus hops give way to bittersweet dark chocolate in the mid-palate, with a strong coffee bitterness coming into the finish, along with an odd off-sweet flavour. This offers fairly standard porter flavours, and is a passable effort, although not exactly exciting.

vinivini (1934) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 12, 2017
Pours opaque petroleum black. Small beige head. Big coffee, chocolate, earth, citrus hops on nose. Medium body. Powerful flavour. Rich roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Decent hopping. Long bitter finish. Perfect porter (or stout?).

oobawa (1078) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Big hoppy bitter bomb of a porter, chock full roasty unsweetened chocolate, deep raisin and mocha notes underneath. Mild sweetness perks up as it warms, and a lengthy bitter finish adds a nice spiteful fade. Surprisingly good.

MNAle (165) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Very dark, black even, with a 1 inch brown-tan thick, creamy-looking head that recedes gradually, leaving lacing slipping down the glass. Smoaky, roasted malt aroma with hints of sweet raisins. Moderate mouth feel. Initial taste hit is somewhat sweet, but it transitions quickly to a lightly roasted flavor. The initial flavor has a character I cant quite pin down... almost minty, but not really - maybe it is the wood others mention. The balance is provided with mild to somewhat more than mild bittering in the finish. Dont be mislead by the name; this is a porter/stout in all but name. Decent.

Bottle at home. Taste of dark rye bread in toaster, coffee and bitter orange peels. Some hints of bubblegum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sjogro (3553) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Black with tan head. Sweet deep roasted chocolate malts, barley, chocolate, coffee candy, molasses, burnt match heads, black pepper (the aroma, not the spiciness), something fruity like brier. Over medium sweet and deep roasty, almost ashy, ground bitter. Over medium body, soft carbonation. Slick feel. Nice roasty bitter sweet finish.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Mega fajne połączenie żywicznych chmieli i wyraźnej paloności.

heman (882) - Tychy, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Barwa czarna, z brunatnymi przebłyskami. Aromat mało intensywny, głwnie popiołowa paloność, nuty melasy i trawiastego chmielu. W smaku pełne, z wyraźną palonością nutami kawy. Czekolada gorzka w tle, słodkie kakao. Finisz wytrawny, lekko wysuszający i popielniczkowy.
