MelvinKalksma (1213) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and smoke.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends sightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and smoke.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been way stronger. The appearance and palate are great and the flavour is good too.

Grzesiek79 (4130) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Fajny palony porter z niewielka bezowa pianka, nie oblepiajaca szkla i szybko opadajaca. Barwa brazowa gesta i nieprzezroczysta. Zapach intensywny kakao i wystudzona kawa. Profil glownie palono wytrawny z lekka nuta orzechowa na koniec. I dont know why this beer is Scotch Porter? The label is no Scotch.

Deep brown, muddy, creamy any beige head. Aroma is roast, coffee, earth, minimal peat & smoke. Light to medium body. Dry taste of coffee, roasted malts. A bit vinous. Light bitterness. Good. Could use a more solid palate.
