UPDATED: DEC 15, 2017 0.33 l bottle brought by Višnja 666 and Pilot Goran from Oslo. Thanks. Dark brown to black, small beige head. Dried fruits, figs, light roasty. Sugary. Thick, strong, boozy. heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 17, 2017
Dec. ’16. A 0.5 l bottle at Birra+, Rome. It poured a pitch black body with a small brown head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee, caramel, raisins and some licorice. A bit peaty as well. Lightly sweet flavor, balanced with moderate bitterness, malty with lots of coffee, chocolate, dried fruits and peat to leather smoked notes. Quite complex, I should've elaborated this better but it was a rough day on my RB duty. Full bodied with round and smooth mouthfeel. Long finish followed the flavor with earthy and smoked notes besides pleasant roasted malty ones. No remarks on alcohol presence, but I remember it was warming. A pleasant, well crafted imperial porter. al8888 (4) - - SEP 9, 2017 does not count

Deep near-black body, opaque, holds a ring of tan head.
Aromas of dark chocolate, meaty roast, dark toffee & earthy hop.
Carbonation on the low side which works well, providing a very smooth, slick ride & deep richness to the palate.
Flavours of dark chocolate, sweet black coffee, brown sugar, cookie, vinous dark fruits - develops as it warms, rather nicely really. Finishes on the sweeter side, just enough bitterness to balance.
Very good overall - big without being brash or unapproachable.
Tap. Pitch black ale with moderate capuccino head. Aroma: molasses, caramel, dried fruit, minor coffee. Full body. Medium sweet bombastic malts on taste. Big molasses, caramel malts, chocolate, prune. Light bitterness along. Perfect porter. skortila (5996) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2017
Old note. The aroma has roast, coffee. Dark coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is light-moderate bitter and has roast, coffee, laurel, some fruity tones. Okay. Soupoftoday (86) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2017
Nice, typical porter flavours. Toffee, choc, coffee. Maybe a bit of spice. Problem is this beer is just a bit too sweet...even for the ABV gam (4097) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2017
