bartlebier (3933) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2016
355ml bottles once a year 2012-2015 and sampled at BHandlung 2016. - Classic porter with a natural touch of caramel roast (figs, nuts) and almost Dubbel-like yeasty esters probably coming from those open pot still aka "Yorkshire squares" pictured on the label. - Does the classic filter coffee bean + milk chocolate and some caramel very well, adding chalky minerals and a metallic mouthfeel for good measure to the otherwise "dry yet creamy" mouthfeel. - Fair touch of aroma hop goodness adding grape and wet pine notes to the mix. Benchmark in its subtlety.

Aroma: very rich and roasty; Appearance: pitch black with thick, tan head; nice lacing; Taste: follows nose along with tang not usually found with porters; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet/tangy finish; Overall: still not my favorite style but this one is slightly better than average.

serjaymz (170) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUL 17, 2016
17.07.2016 Şişe, İstanbul. Görüntü: simsiyah renk, açık kahverengi, oldukça küçük kabarcıklı köpük. Yarım parmak altı kalıcı. Koku: kavrulmuş malt, kahve, alttan ise vişnemsi kırmızı meyve tınıları geliyor. Damak: çok dolgun değil, kahve, kavrulmuş malt tatları önde, kalıcılık hafif kavruk tatların dışında çok kompleks değil, kalıcılık da yüksek değil.

Dark pour with good head. Smooth silky texture, roasted malts, mild chocolate with a coffee like tang. Some berry notes as well. Good but not as transcendent as their Oatmeal stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gigaphone (9) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2016 does not count
Sweet fruity caramel smell, hopsy taste, medium carbonation, no head, bitter aftertaste, chestnut brown color, dry to semi-dry, some nice citrus twist that makes it a bit lighter. I drank it colder than recommend. You get a bit more dynamic taste than from the standard porter.
