BrewWhatIWant (294) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2017
Pours very deep ruby that almost looks black but light can still pass through it. The head is beige and recedes to a ring that leaves some lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt and coffee. Taste is moderately sweet and a little bitter. There are notes of red berries, chocolate, espresso , slightly burnt malt, and toast. FULL bodied with moderate carbonation. Now that’s a porter! It’s got all the roasty goodness but that’s really the secondary quality after the berries.

hrabren (1529) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2017
On tap at Samo pivo [Serbian: Only Beer], Belgrade. I guess it's this version, it was definitely 6%. Served very chilled. Shared with lovely Anja. Black, small tan head. Roasty aroma, dark malts, light coffee. Beautiful taste develops with notes of dry fruits, roasty to burnt, light caramel and light coffee. Medium body, moderate to high carbonation, moderate lasting, roasty finish. Not as smooth maybe. Nice one, although not spectacular. I wish it was slightly warmer, maybe I'd rate the aromas better.

Bamsen78 (5562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2017
Draught @ Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt and roast, with fruity and estery notes. Bitter, roasty flavour with touches of coffee and dark chocolate, and sweetish notes of malt. Hints of fruit and yeast. Lingering roasty aftertaste with estery hints. Rich body. A very good Porter, me lads!

Mapinguarify (78) - SERBIA - MAY 28, 2017
Niceeeee, I like it. Aroma is not so specific, standard porter (a bit coffee, and roasted malts, not too aggressive). Deep dark color, looking almost like stout. Mild coffee aroma, espresso like. Roasty notes and dark chocolate. Bitterness, I would say it’s quite neutral, it’s not to sweet or bitter, great balance. Medium to full bodied, oily, sticky texture. I like that robust/heavier feeling when you drink it. Very, very nice beer. Heavyweight beer, just the way I like. Big recommendation.

ryecatcher (1466) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle from The Beer Temple. Deep stouty-looking brownish-black pour. Foamy off-white head with decent retention. Nose is roasty, cocoa, some smoke, coffee, very faint diacetyl. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly bittersweet, roasty notes, some cocoa nibs, mild sooty bitterness, coffee, vanilla. Solid porter.

PabloZab (1701) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 28, 2016
Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Leciutko czekoladowe, subtelnie palone, lekkie w odczuciu nawet w strone wodnistego, pijalne. Liczylem na olej a dostalem wode.
