330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep black with a seductive brown head. Big sweet caramel / malt aroma. Taste is complex, grainy and hoppy. Dried fruits and cocoa contribute to a evolving, meaty taste with depth and character. Everything a porter should be in this day and age. Trolleo (1566) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 8, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Pitch black, huge brown head. If I could give 6 for appearance, I would do so. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee and raisin. Only the foam itself tastes like heavenly chocolate cake. So is the liquid. Plenty of chocolate, some coffee, smooth and slightly sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Wonderful dark chocolate finish. Incredible stuff.
(Svijet Piva 0,33l bottle) tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle: Jet black body with a head that takes about 7 or 8 seconds to fully form. Big-bubbled, lathery & tan in color, quick to fade to a bubbly collar around the glass. Huge creamy coffee aroma backed with roasted malt, dark cocoa beans, burnt brown sugar, very faint anise, a kiss of char & smoke, & a moderate undercurrent of milky sweetness. Flavor is dense & bitter up front. Lots & lots of charred malt, heavily roasted coffee beans, burnt cacao, scorches brown sugar... You get the point. Very roasted & pretty bitter. Earthy. However there’s still a very small, yet integral malt sweetness that wafts in & out, balancing the insane roastiness just enough to make this drinkable. A little bit of smoke, charcoal, licorice, bitter chocolate, & burnt coffee bean in the finish. Medium bodied. Very tasty porter.
