Rich and robust. Smells of deep roasted chocolate malt. Hint of coffee. Full of flavor. Hearty. Slight bit of hops noticeable throughout. The roastiness is rather incredible. Love this brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

W aromacie mleczna kawa. Odrobina czekolady. Nic specjalnego. W smaku szaleństwo. Gorzkie kakao, czekolada. Dosyć wysoko nasycone.

Lore (2576) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 21, 2017
deep dark brown colour, almost one inch dense brown head; aroma of dark chocolate, burnt plum jam, toffee, some coffee, hints of soy sauce and roasted nuts; taste of dark chocolate, dried plum, heavy roasted, almost burnt sunflower seeds, some unripe fruitiness (maybe apple, or even more likely pear), over-toasted rye bread, hints of syrupy notes...and dark chocolate again! amazing porter with a body, which would be perfectly enough even for an imperial porter!

Robe noire et opaque. Robe beige bien persistante. Armes fum, caf, chocolat. Got malt, chocolat et caf. Le fum reste en bouche. Texture crmeuse. La carbonatation est fine et peu abondante. Bon porter.

Dark black pour with great brown head. Nose of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is big on roasted malt and nice bite of spice at the end. Great balance and not too much of any one flavor. Nice texture that leads to another sip.

From bottle (10 mo. old) in porter glass. Pours deep dark brown with tan head and aroma of chocolate and licorice. A bit more rich than most porters, maltiness gives way to bitterness on the palate and the licorice reappears

Aroma: Dark chocolate and coffee Appearance: Black color with hazy liquid and brown rocky head. Taste: Medium sweet notes behind heavy bitterness Palate: Full body with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Long bitter chocolate finish. It remains nicely for a long time. Overall: I definitely love porter beers. You expect something and you get that.

0.33 bottle. Pours pitch black, with a creamy head. Really nice aroma, you can already feel this is gonna be good: coffee, chocolate, warm roastiness. Taste is really balanced, everything is in the right amount. Couldnt find any off flavors. Nice, full body. Finish is surprisingly herbal. Very, very good!

Grifo en 99Cervezas. Vierte marrn oscuro completamente opaco, con espuma de caf muy cremosa y adherente, compuesta de burbuja pequea bastante persistente. Buena carbonatacin con algunos hilos de burbujas subiendo a la superficie (slo visibles en la parte exterior de la copa ya que es imposible ver nada ms adentro). Intensa en nariz con notas predominantes de caf y quiz aun ms de regaliz. Notas secas leosas y un punto herbal muy al fondo. Tambin ciruela pasa bastante seca y melaza, como base de todo lo anterior. Gran complejidad en nariz en un conjunto extraordinariamente expresivo para ser una "simple" Porter. Casi hemos de comprobar su graduacin (6,5% ABV) para asegurarnos de que no se trata en realidad de una Imperial Porter. De entre los sabores bsicos destaca el amargo, con una buena base de dulce y un punto cido. En el post-gusto el caf y la regaliz compiten por reinar, aunque la evolucin en boca acaba dando el mando al caf, con un sabroso equilibrio final amargo-dulce-cido. Es de cuerpo medio-alto, ms bien sedosa, casi carnosa y ligeramente picante. Resulta sorprendentemente refrescante, sobre todo a partir del tercer trago, cuando nuestra lengua se ha acostumbrado a esta expresividad. Esta cerveza tiene la intensidad y el peso en boca de una Imperial Porter (o casi) con la bebestibilidad de una Porter normal ms ligera. Todo un logro! Una bebida de trago medio que maridar muy bien con cerdo, ternera y sobre todo cordero, as como con quesos fuertes. Total y completamente recomendable. Para repetir siempre que se pueda.
