UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Bottle at home. Pours black with brown head and heavy lacing. Aroma is chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is exemplary for this style; chocolate notes, sweet, slight hints of bitterness - really even. Finishes full and creamy with some tingle on the tongue. Blurs the line between porter and stout.

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.

kapusil (1320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 13, 2017
0.33l bottle. Pitch black body with a brown head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate and coffee with a hint of floral hops. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, some plums and floral hops. Very nice beer. It is more roasty and less fruity than a regular porter. I would call this a stout, but who cares about styles when the beer is this good?

Kinzetre tkletes porter, jfekete ital, krmes, bzs sznű presszhabbal a tetejn. Aromi a kakas npolyis, erjesztett kvbabos, selymes tcsokolds hromszg mentn helyezkednek el, zjegyei is ilyen előjelek ltal szeglyezve ltenek testet egy sima szerkezetű, gmblyded elemek olvadkony karaktere alkotta zvilgban. Kakas, res kvs, pirtott magvas, hamusra prklt malts elemeit egy karcos, kesernys komls karakter helyezi keretbe, a kikezdhetetlen porter-lmnyt megkoronzva.

Nice pour with a full bodied head. Pours smoothly with an espresso brown appearance. Has a smooth taste which is remnisent of coffee and dark chocolate. I would recommend, however, after one I felt a fuller that I preferred.

toscanoigor (203) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 7, 2017
Cerveja escura, quase preta, com luzes avermelhadas, creme bege de boa formao e durao. Aroma delicioso de caf, cacau, levemente picante, com toques de lpulos terrosos e notas muito tmidas de castanhas. O sabor predomina o tostado, caf, boa presena de cacau e um final moderadamente amargo, com retrogosto persistente. O lcool se faz um pouco presente, mas de maneira bem equilibrada e inserida. Corpo mdio, boa cremosidade. Uma porter exemplar.

Pours up dark black, with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate. Taste has dark chocolate, cocoa, subtle fruity esters, very light roast. Medium body, lots of chocolate, light coffee, and a touch of hops in the finish. Excellent.
