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 (204) - 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 can’t 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. Don’t be mislead by the name; this is a porter/stout in all but name. Decent.

m.mahu (193) - Iasi, ROMANIA - MAR 8, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2017 Bottle. Pours pitch black with no head whatsoever. Burnt coffee, toasted malts, dark cocoa, roasted rye, molasses, burnt rubber, smoky notes. Full mouthfeel. There is some hops going on. Extremely good.

sjogro (4348) - 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.

Maakun (5960) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost black with light brown head. Licorice, dark chocolate, sweet malts, light ash, some dusty nuts, cardboard, blackberries. Medium sweet and bitter. A bit over medium bodied with slick oily thick feel and soft carbonation. Nice!

Pallleon (402) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2017
Szép fekete szín, habja alig van, szénsav sem sok. Étcsokoládés, pörkölt malátás, közepesen keserű. A háttérben gyümölcsös aromák húzódnak meg. Nagyon selymes. Kandalló mellett a legjobb ital.

Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 17, 2017
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Mega fajne połączenie żywicznych chmieli i wyraźnej paloności.

3.5
heman (1092) - Tychy, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Barwa czarna, z brunatnymi przebłyskami. Aromat mało intensywny, głównie 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.

cobaink2 (737) - seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle from tavour. Burst of roasty cold pressed coffee and coco nibs. Can’t quite place this as a porter but I’ll go along with it l. Nice hops interplayed with this. Quite unique.
