With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

Tried on Warsaw beer festival (4 th edition). It was tasted a little bit colder than it should be as a porter. Low BLG and alcohol as for that style. Average aroma - roasty. Very good, classic appearance. Taste is good but quite shallow, not so much complex as I expected from porter. Generally a little bit disappointing for me, next time I should tried it from bootle at higher temperature.

Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna, opada ze śladami na szkle. Aromat przyjemny, lekko palony, porterowy. Poprawia się w miarę ogrzewania, dochodzą lekkie nuty drewniane. Lekka nuta kojarząca się płatkami owsianymi. Lekka nuta orzechowa. Dość pełne w odczuciu. Ciekawy porter.

Ładna, ciemna barwa, aromat słaby, ciężko wyczuwalny, w smaku jak na porter kompletnie brak ciała, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Liczyłem na więcej, może ze względu na ładną etykietę i kapsel firmowy ale jak się okazało nie oceniaj piwa po etykiecie.

Bottle at home. It has weak notes of all of the tastes that you’d expect -- coffee, chocolate, toasted grain -- and a surprisingly clean, mildly thin mouthfeel. Interesting to try, perfectly pleasant.

SanfordBrewer (1518) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2016
opaque mahogany with very thin beige head. medium-full body with high carbonation which harshens the acrid burnt character.

aroma: charred malt/grain, roasted acidity, subtle cacao, sweet mocha, leafy herbal hops, licorice.

taste: leafy hops, char, acrid character from roasted grains and coffee. Rather one-dimensional.

No amber, brown, or crystal malts coming through, so this is much more stout-like than porter-like.

Hopmaestro (1432) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2016
Aroma is milder roasted malts with some dark choco’s and coffee. Taste follows the same formula. Very clean and straight forward porter with a dry sensation. Almost too clean.

Kolor: ciemnobrunatny, klarowny.
Piana: obfita, drobnopcherzykowa, trwała.
Zapach: sporo aromatów słodowych, opiekanych, melanoidynowych, ciemnych owoców, kawy, czekolady, kakao.
Smak: średnia pełnia, gładkie, dokładnie to co w aromacie, lekka słodycz dobrze współgrająca z goryczką o kawowo, kakaowym charakterze.
Wysycenie: śrdnie.
