0.5l bottle from the LBCO. Served in a tulip. Pours an opaque dark brown, with a fine beige head. Aroma: Malt, grapes, coffee, roasted nuts. Palate: Thick, creamy, slightly oily finish, fairly fizzy. Taste: Sweet, slight bitterness in the finish. Really nice porter. Lots of flavours going on here, and the mix of sweet and bitter is nice.

Good flavour and depth of flavour. Good sized amount in the bottle and the first sip has a burst of flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, bread. Medium body with average carbonation. Taste is medium bittersweet with a dryish finish. Great porter.

Pours black with a huge foamy head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma. Flavour is very much the same, a total delight of a porter.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Server den med bacon, kniv og gaffel og den ville være en perfekt aftenmad. Forstår ikke helt hvorfor jeg drikker Guiness når en god porter er så guddommelig :)

Barwa czarna z ciemnobrązowymi przebłyskami. Piana obfita (ledwo mieści się w szkle), drobnopęcherzykowa, koloru écru. Gęsto oblepia szkło w chwili opadania, po paru chwilach redukuje się do cienkiego kożuszka, do końca pozostaje małą wysepką i pierścieniem przy szkle. Lacing średni. Aromat kakaowy, gorzkiej czekolady, w tle lekkie nuty palone. Smak słodkawy, następnie suszonych, wędzonych śliwek oraz lekkie nuty kakaowe. Na finiszu lekka kwaskowatość i goryczka kawowa, która dobrze ukrywa alkohol. Piwo przywodzi na myśl delikatny likier kawowo-śliwkowy z palonymi nutami słodowymi. Warka 05.11.2013

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans des verres "Mille et une bières": belle robe brun foncé surmontée d’une mousse couleur café assez généreuse et persistante avec une carbonatation moyenne.Le nez nous amène rapidement sur des arômes de café avec des notes houblonnées assez intenses.La bouche nous offre des saveurs à l’image du nez avec une petite touche fumée et cendrée nous laissant sur une finale très agréable où le houblon domine l’ensemble.Un bon Porter léger et avec du corps!16,5/20
