aleigator (945) - GERMANY - NOV 13, 2016
Pours pitch black with a big, fluffy beige head. Smells of milk chocolate, fudge, earth and dried raisins. Roasted hazelnuts mingle into a pleasant malt foundation, which produces a nice sweetness. Has a soft carbonation, together with a very light, slighty metallic mouthfeel among a good amount of fluffy cream and chocolate. Tastes of rustic bread dough, earth and toffee malts with a glazed caramel topping, soothed by cream and a metallic carbonation. Finishes with even more cream and a subtle tartness among scented wood. Very light, creamy and chocolate driven with a strange metallic carbonation.

I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in Zürich and I drank it after the job yesterday at home like a dessert. In my point of view, it is a decent porter, all the things that you could expect. The body is a powerful brown and black chocolate, thin foam, average carbonation. The taste is with notes of roasted malt, coffee, hop, decent bitterness, overall well balanced and classical.

Pours black with high beige foam. Aroma is sourish sweet, kiwi, fruits, freshness, some cream, light toast, grapes, berry pie. Taste is also refreshing, very fruity, grapes, some toasted white bread, berries. Very nice beer!

labeerinthum (832) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 9, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova il caffè. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta ed il bicchiere si contorna di una schiuma di un pizzo che ti invita ad essere un compagno complice di bevute. Le bollicine soni fini e medie. La carbonazione è abbondante. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è strutturato. Il dolce è medio, come l’amaro. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è lungo, pulito, complesso ed asciutto. Il retrogusto è persistente. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, cioccolato, caffè e frutta secca.

kaserov (677) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 21, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2016 Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de un dedo de grosor. Escasa carbonatación, se nota más en boca. Aroma a malta torrefacta, café y alcohol (al final, muy mínimo). Cuerpo medio, sabor a malta torrefacta, café, algo metálico, terroso, extraño para mí, pero sabroso. Increíble Porter, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta el escasísimo alcohol.
