luvcasks (178) - USA - OCT 13, 2008
Blackish slightly viscous pour with a finely beaded moussy brown head. Bitter dark chocolate coffee and dried dates and figs in the note along with some bready notes Taste: A very warm inviting rich blend of dark cocoa, espresso like notes dark dried fruits and some nutty flavors enveloped in a lightly silky package stopped from being too viscous with just a touch of chalkiness Overall: What a wonderful beer - I just love the silky smooth textural component enveloping a lot of classic porter like notes. The best part being the dark malt flavors compliment and not dominate each other

In short: tasty porter.
Pours dark with nice tan head, frothy, persistent. Good lacing. Roasty, coffee, licorice nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is coffee, roasty, nuts, maybe a bit watery for 7%. Enjoyable anyway.

MelvinKalksma (1097) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016

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

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with a slight/medium brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is complex and balanced, but lacks intensity. Amazingly complex and balanced, but might lack intensity. The aroma especially suffers from this. Could have been more roasted too. Close to being a great beer, but is simply too weak to achieve it.

Brewhemia (239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2016
Brown/black with lots of brown head. Aroma of burned toast and a caramel sweetness. When I swirl it around a nice hoppy aroma of hay and grass joins the party. The taste is medium sweet and has a powerfull roasted malt taste almost like burned coffee. The finish is dry and bitter. Really nice taste. Medium to full bodied and good carbonation. Good stuff.

Goede porter. Aroma: koffie en een zoete zweem. Smaak: mooie combinatie tussen bitter, hartig en zoet. Gebrande mout zorgt voor een houtachtige smaak. Rijp donker fruit zorgt voor de balans. Mooie porter.

piwnepodroze (477) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
W pokalu znajduje się bardzo czarna ciecz o sporej gęstości, zwieńczona beżową, ładnie budującą się pianą. Porter jest przede wszystkim bardzo gładki i wręcz oleisty, a także dosyć nisko nasycony. Ja takie lubię. Doskonała paloność miesza się w trakcie piwa z aromatem i smakiem gorącej czekolady i mocnej kawy. Na koniec dochodzi posmak kakao, pralin i daktyli. Porter jest bardzo przyjemnie zbalansowany - średnia pełnia i aromat sugerujący słodycz, a ta jest uzupełniona paloną gorzkością i odpowiednim nachmieleniem. Świetny porter!
