Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Dark brown with minimal foam. Aroma is dark roasted malt. Taste is sort of a coarse roasty malt. A little woody maybe. Enjoyable.

Bamsen78 (5400) - 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 (77) - 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 (1445) - 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.

Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Leciutko czekoladowe, subtelnie palone, lekkie w odczuciu nawet w strone wodnistego, pijalne. Liczylem na olej a dostalem wode.
