Dashimus (230) - 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.

Fules (962) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JAN 16, 2017
Közepes, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Illata csokis, szilvás, aszalt szilvás. Íze csokis, pörkölt malátás, aszalt gyümölcsös, kávés. Közepesen testes, erősen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Az illata többet ígért, nem igazán áll össze egységes egésszé, és lehetne kevésbé szénsavas.

oobawa (794) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Good porter, deep and viscous with a raisin undertone floating around dark chocolate and a coffee-tinged acidity. Finishes dry and roasty but a tad harsh, spiky around the edges and boozy for the relatively low ABV.

bonev (513) - POLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Piwo nieprzejrzyste w kolorze brunatno czarnym z bardzo ladna sredniopecherzykowa lekko bezowa piana. Aromat przyjemny porterowy aczkolwiek moglby byc troche bardziej intensywniejszy. Jest troche wedzono palony, mamy czekolade i kawe. Wszystko bardzo fajnie do siebie pasuje. W smaku troche nut opiekanych, kakao z polslodkim finiszem. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie, goryczka dosc dluga i raczej palona. Troche za lekki i moglby miec wiecej ciala ale naprawde fajny.

Alebarasi (51) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - DEC 24, 2016
Pours dark brown to black color with medium dark beige head. Medium body, moderate carbonation, some lacing. Earthy aromas of coffee (mocha), chocolate, toasted and burnt malts, molasses, rye bread, wood smoke and toffee/caramel. Nicely toasted flavors of milk chocolate, coffee, roast, dark fruits, nuts, leafy hops and dark malts. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. Although it has 6% Alc., it’s very easy-to-drink. Smooth and roasty porter. Enjoyable, no doubt about it.
