Black beer with beige, quickly vanishing head. Aroma has chocolate, milk coffee, sweetness and oats. Taste has malts, milk coffee, chocolate and oats. Medium+ body, very low carbonation. As the name tells us, this porter is soft as silk.

Bulk_Carrier (5837) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Reviewed from notes. Thanks Greg for the bottle. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a mostly black color with a nice two finger white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Some lace, slightly speckled. The aroma had some roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, slight smoke, slight brown sugar. The flavor blended the previously mentioned aromas together - roasty, sweet and subtle smoke. All leads into the aftertaste and bled into the finish. The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a touch above with a nice soft carbonation about it. ABV felt good. Overall, nicely done porter well worthy of having again.

tfredvik (1912) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2017
Close to black body with a rather small, short-lived, light brown head that almost disappears completely without leaving much lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, and ash in the back. Strong flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, ash and rum, with brown sugar in the back. Hm, ashy chocolate that is both dry and sweet, that’s a new one! Moderate sweet taste with a light to moderate bitter finish. Close to full body, smooth texture, soft carbonation. Enjoyable!

Weinig aroma. In de smaak lichte caramel en geroosterde granen. Zeer zachte (de benaming silk klopt) en cleane mondgevoel. Misschien iets te zacht. Ik mis het weerhaakje. De afdronk is zeer zacht.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Bardzo fajny porter. Słodowość w dobrym stylu, charakterystyczna dla ciemniaków od Hoppin Frog.
