Dashimus (235) - London, Greater London, - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland. Pours black with a thin tan head that fades extremely quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate and strong coffee. Flavour is moderate sweetness but a low bitterness. Surprisingly carbonated and thin bodied. Most of the darker beers in Iceland seem to over load on the malt. This on manages to balance it nicely.

Zarrach76 (210) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 21, 2017
Mousse beige sur une bière totalement noire... Voilà nous y sommes ! Le nez est bien celui d’un porter, mais sa particularité est sa palette aromatique qui exhale des arômes propre aux levures (bois, cave, champignon, terre, mousse...) et de café à la Turc avec son marc, sa cardamone etc. (décrit ici comme de l’authentique café Islandais, je demande à goûter). Ça se confirme en bouche avec ce côté café et cacao amer ultra dominants. La texture est un peu mince comparativement au nez, l’alcool quelconque je trouve, la carbonatation faible (comme quasiment tous les Porter d’ailleurs), les levures vraiment franches mais sans finesse, l’amertume plutôt moyenne. On est aussi sur un côté beurré/huileux assez étrange qui rappelle, associé aux flaveurs de levure, certaines Schwartzbier. Le côté fumé est lui aussi présent et donne au final (court) un côté feu de bois mouillé. Bizarre bizarre... Pas vraiment dégueulasse mais pas vraiment bon non plus. J’ai déjà dégusté des Porter d’un tout autre calibre... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

miggle (331) - Fürth, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2017
Poores very dark with minimal head. Clear aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel in smell and taste. Light sweetness in the middle and light hoppy ending. Quite high carbonation. Maybe a little bit too much for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Navers (52) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Beer served in 18°C, Teku Glass. It’s hard to believe that this is Porter, I would say... this taste more like a proper Stout. It have nice coffee, malty flavor, slightly chocolate taste, with a lot of roasted malt. Overall: nothing special, but good one.

caribouandcake (6) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017 does not count
bottled. pure black with a quickly disappearing head which leaves no trace. slight ruby tint bleeding through at the bottom of the glass but very dark. aromas of black coffee, with woody, watery qualities and a slight smokiness. very deep flavour. hints of sweetness present, but taste is dominated by the toasted flavours. bitterness draws in through the finish. yum. smooth and drinkable, slightly thick and sticky qualities on the palate. lovely porter

Swaroga (2205) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Nice looking, dark stout-ish like with medium and lasting head. The aroma of this beer isn’t much intensive. Mostly notes of dairy, coffee, black chocolate, nuts…the usual. The taste is delicate too. Pleasant and silky start with smooth chocolate. A little coffee acidity and ash in the middle. The end is almost not existing , more like milk. Easy drinking beer. Nothing special.

Ďakujem Zuzka :) Pours in black body with low tan head. Aroma has toffee, malty, lightly roasty. Almost no coffee. Clean fermentation profile. Taste has toffee caramel sweetness upfront with medium to low earthy bitterness. Good drink ability. Body is medium with medium low carbonation.

ajnepple (6121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Draft at the Tivoli Brewing Tap House. Brown/black appearance with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma of cocoa, roasted grain, coffee and light caramel malt. Similar flavor, adding chocolate and light toffee. Medium to light body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel, slightly thin. Clean and easy to drink overall. Solid porter.

Bottle. Black colour, small, quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma of toast, coffee, burnt grain, roasted malts. Taste is light+ sweet, light to medium bitter, toast, bread, coffee, roasty, light peat. Medium- body, rather thin texture, average carbonation. Decent, not impressive.
