4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Waitrose: To me this is everything a porter should be. Rich and satisfying with buckets of flavour. Lot’s of chocolate and malt but it never becomes too rich, perfectly balanced. The king of porters.
Dark opaque pour with some red around the edges. Thick, cream beige foam. Rich caramel, roasted malt in the nose. Chocolate comes out in the flavor. Very rich, creamy texture. Heavy body and very light fizz. The hops provide a background piney bitterness. The finish is on the dry end.

Hoppy SchokoPorter with the ASHy StoutBody. ??. Last Beer of the PHISH Night. Mauis Gift ;)...0,5l Buddel. Davros IX (360) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle at home while preparing dinner. Poured beautifully with a pretty and long-lasting head and an aroma of toasted malt that augured well for the beer itself. The taste was all toasted malt and was almost sensuous in the mouth. A really long-lasting flavour and a pleasure to drink. I can see why this scores so well and I know that it is a beer that I will revisit. Nikokaoja (277) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - JUL 22, 2017
20. 7. 2017, Ljubljana w/ Vike. Bottled. Very creamy coffeelike mouthful feel. Nicely carbonized, flavour of roasted malts, evenly balanced with hops bitterness.

0,5l can. Nose: coffee, bread, chocolate. Taste: roasted bread, coffee, slight citrusy bitterness in the end. Nice. Bacchus66 (393) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2017
330ml bottle. Beautiful clear amber brown with a persistent light brown cap. Roasted malt and chocolate nose. Flavors are also chocolate, rich roasty malt, light sweetness. Not finding coffee flavors here. The mouthfeel is supple, with a lingering, lightly malty finish. Light-medium bodied. Very well balanced and tasty brew. rader (8) - Ostfildern, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2017 does not count
Spannendes Bier. Riecht bereits nach Kaffee und schmeckt auch sehr stark danach. Tolle, starke Röstaromen. DrNosha (2350) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2017
500ml Flasche. Dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes glänzendes Bier, beiger Schaum. Röstig trockener Malzduft. Klassisch, aber auch langweilig. Der Geschmack ist auch so. Klassisches Röstmalz, Kafee. Probabeer (215) - - JUL 5, 2017
Bastante buena, el primer sabor tiene mucho cuerpo, achocolatado, el sabor largo se difumina rápido.
