Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

Pours a very dark brown or black color. Maybe half finger brown head. Poor retention, very light lacing. Not much to see here.

Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Lots of dark fruits, especially prunes. Dark roasted malts. Lots of malt. Whiff of alcohol.

Taste is burnt brown sugar. Dark fruits, especially prunes. Chocolate, caramel. Not too much coffee. It actually reminds me of a barleywine. Quite sweet.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, no doubt about it. Sweet, sticky, thick, heavy. Also a little alcohol bitterness.

Overall, I initially rated this quite low, but it has grown on me. It took a while, but I like it quite a bit. No, I wouldn’t recommend this to most people, but I would buy it again.

19Michi38 (123) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 20, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana kremowa, drobna, średnio-obfita, lacingu brak. W zapachu praliny, trochę pumpernikiel, mleczna czekolada, kakao, ogólnie bardzo słodko. Zresztą podobnie w smaku. Również dominuje słodycz - mleczna czekolada, trochę kakao, to wszystko lekko kontrują kwaśne, ciemne owoce, ale na krótko. Po chwili znowu wraca słodyczka. Goryczka niska, posmak kakaowo-czekoladowy, nasycenie średnie.

lello4ever (918) - ITALY - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Aspetto esemplare, nera con ampia Schiuma marrone a grana molto fine e compatta. Al naso tostatura drake fruits e una nota alcolica. Al palato piuttosto dolce, con malto caramello tostatura. Corpo medio, molto cremosa, alcol ben evidente. Peccato solo una dolcezza un pelo eccessiva.

RexTalionis (3705) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle. Black in color with a small tan head. Roasted malts, vinous and plummy sweetness in aroma. Quit smooth mouthfeel. Sweet syrupy and bit of roasted bready malts in taste. Bit on the sweeter side. Coffee sweet vinous finish. Expected this to be a good nightcap, but the sweetness ruined it a bit.

Might be best Porter I've had yet. Dark rich almost like adult root beer. Sweet without being treakely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
