(On tap @ Warpigs HF Day, Copenhagen, May 12 2016) Pours pitch black with a massive medium tan head and lace carpet. Aroma of coffee, light smoky notes, grain, dark malt, unsweetened chocolate. Palate is loaded with lightly burnt malts, cacao, ground coffee, toffee, light vanilla, pine boughs, mineral, moderately bitter hoppy finish with supporting roast. Mega balance. Medium full with below average carb. This is a pitch perfect ’normal’ porter that I could drink on any given day, the water chemistry seems to help hone quite typical elements into something much better than typical. vincentvega72 (757) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
Donkerzwart bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Heel mooi licht rokerig aroma. Koffie, rook, chocolade, beetje tabak, rozijntjes. Maar als je een slok neemt vind ik dat het bier gelijk beetje verwatert in de mond. Beetje vlak. Kan ook liggen aan de flinke stouts die ik hiervoor had gedronken. Al bij al goeie porter maar geen wauw effect. Sudz4Dayz (136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
