UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Aroma estigante, aparência singular, parece mesmo óleo de motor. Sabor amargo do malte tostado e um paladar sensacional.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 Draught, tapped a week ago. A great example of a stout. Has the smokiness and sweetness that first turned me on to stouts via Guiness. Wouldn?t mind seeing it served with nitrogen, but it has a good thickness with regular C02.

On cask in the Ericht Alehouse, Blairgowrie. Poured deep dark brown with no head. Aroma of roast malt and dark fruit. Medium to full body, flavour is medium sweet, lightly bitter. Very nice berry flavour, tastes heavier.

jbruner (5292) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Cask sampled at ACAT 2015. Pours a thick black with a small, lasting tan head and light lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and cocoa notes and a slight oaked note on the back end. Floral hop flavor up front, followed immediately by the maltiness described in the smell. It is well balanced and complex.

mtu71 (363) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Tap. Lovely porter! Huge creamy brown head lasts till end and makes filigrane layered lace. Small roasted aroma. Deep dark black brown. Roasted malts, caramel, herbs. Thick silky, oily palate. Just adoreable.

@Beertemple van tap, 6%, denk daarom dat ik deze versie moet hebben
Mooi zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma is uitstekend, heerlijke chocolade, vol moutigheid, zoetig, Smaken zijn zeer stevige moutigheid, zacht en wat romig, koffie bitter, echter mooie gladde en lekker porter, ook iets van vanille. maar van tap smaakt het gewoonweg uitstekend. Lange afdronk, erg prettig drinken dit spul.
