Not usually a porter fan but this is really good. Chocolate, coffee, not too heavy. Nice deep dark porter with good lacing.

blackandwhite (13) - Dublin 2, IRELAND - MAY 13, 2016
Pour a a dark chocolate black with a nice head which fades quickly. Nice malty taste with a slight citrus kick from the hops. One of the best Irish porters out there.

toscanoigor (183) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2016 Cerveja escura, marrom, quase preta, com espuma bege de mdia durao. Aroma de caf e chocolate. O sabor acompanha o aroma, mas muito mais intensamente e com mais complexidade, adicionando notas frutadas. Final amargo, na medida certa. tima porter, refrescante.

On tap @Salt House in Galway, pours dark brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma of roasted coffee and malts. Taste similar, roasted malts, initially sweet but finishes bitter. Medium body with light carbonation.

Gangstergafje (864) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
The beer looks like a beautiful porter. The color is pith black, with a dark almond foam head. The foam tends to collapse quickly, but a nice drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is nice, bt a little mild. I mell some delicious roasted barley, giving aromas of coffee, chocolate and salted caramel. There is a lovely combination between salty aromas, roasty bitterness and sweet chocolate. The same applies for the taste. There is a delicious salted caramel flavour, which is quite unique for a regular porter. I havent encountered it a lot. It.s in perfect balance with the darker roast flavours. It sure reminds me of a stormy port: a stormy dark bitterness together with a salty sea flavour. An excellent porter.
