Wischylini's rating

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
Wischylini (297) - Grimstad, - NOV 3, 2013
Pours clear, very dark reddish brown, almost black. Forms a very nice, light brown head that sits for quite some time and leaves a nice lacing on the sides of the snifter. Aromas on the nose are dominated by spices, pepper and a dry, dusty smokiness and woody aromas too. The alcohol content is amazingly not that noticeable on the aromas. Aromas on the tongue are quite similar to those already mentioned, but with a nice dark tinge to it. The taste is semi-sweet, with a nice somewhat dry finish, and a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin for a hefty and complex porter like this, but in a good way. This beer is excellent; one of the best I’ve had.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Épaisse, huileuse et odorante (cacao, grains de céréales brûlés, cendres), elle est presque totalement opaque. Jusque là rien d’impressionnant, mais la bouche est réellement l’étape où ça commence : intense et moelleuse, mais pas trop, elle présente une belle balance entre les saveurs multiples (chocolat noir, touche de fumé, café en grains, un peu de boisé) et une texture raisonnablement dominée par les malts. Étonnante retenue, et ça lui sert bien au final : le terreux du seigle ressort subtilement, et le buveur n’est pas agressé à chaque gorgée.

Alpha10 (721) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
2017/04/18 - Pours dark brown with a thick, foamy, khaki head that instantly reduces and leaves no lacing. Aroma is toasted bread, roasted coffee, hints of caramel, light licorice, dark chocolate and hints of spicy rye. Taste is sweet caramel and dark chocolate with hints of licorice and alcohol and a toasted bready malt backbone. Mouthfeel is medium to full and oily with smooth carbonation and sweet, toasted, warming finish. Beer is smooth and ABV is present but not overwhelming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A more or less playbook porter with coffee and chocolate in the foreground and a slightly smoky finish. Hardly any rye character I sensed here.

Vells (1792) - Rīga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2017
Lovely bready rye, decent roast level, some dark chocolate, light licorice, noticeable hop kick with some earthy and mold grass impact, bit weird yest. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Decent and enjoyable, but nothing outstanding,

Great dark color with no head. Slight plums in the aroma, but overall quite dull scent. Sour coffee in the taste ... and thats it. Average ...

jksipa (862) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Opaque mahogany under a tiny tan head that fades quickly to a sheet.Nose is cocoa, dark fruit, coffee, notes of wood and vanilla. Flavour is light sweet molasses with a medium- coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. There is also a light cherry tartness and a touch of spice from the rye. Mouth is medium and silky with soft carbonation. Alcohol is warming but well integrated. 8/4/8/4/16+

Fijne geroosterde smaak met zure tonen. Brood, chocolade en hint koffie. Rond romig warm mondgevoel met exacte plakkerigheid. In mondgevoel ook silky kwaliteit. Afdronk is complex. Suikers.
