Pours deep black with a thin beige foam head. Medium nose of black olives, liquorice, chocolate. Smooth, malty, creamy body, nice bitterness with a dry finish. Liquorice and roasted malt in a long aftertaste. Awesome Strong Porter!

Gurthnar (5587) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from Zly Casy. 08/11/2011 Aroma raisins, dried fruits, dried plums, chocolate, overall sweet. Also Saaz. Heavy brown head, soft, medium duration. Pitch black colour. Taste is nicely balanced, noble Saaz flavour with fruity sweetness. Full body, chewy mouthfeel. Very easily drinkable. Finish is pretty strong, Saaz bitterness with alcohol sweetness. Alcohol is warm, but not the least bit unpleasant. Very nice one.

Motor oil pour, Nice bit of head, sweet coffee and chocolate smell ... really packs an excellent aroma. Wow rich, complex, with a sweet boozy after taste. Great stuff.

Ktwse (4466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Pours brown to black with a thick tan head that drops quickly. Aroma of port, chocolate, prunes, muscovado and very light coffee. Taste is caramel and chocolate sweet at first before a long, pleasant coffee bitter finish. Way too carbonated, especially at first with very lively, fizzy bubbles. Body is medium and kind of creamy, beyond the bubbles... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
