Barwa ciemno brązowa, klarowna. Piana w miarę trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa, oblepia szkło. Aromat delikatnie palony, czekoladowy. W smaku słodowość, paloność i delikatny karmel. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie. Nic szczególnego. GustavJ (67) - Drammen, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle from a restaurant in Rovinj. Dark brown, almost black. Nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Bittersweet tast with notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla.
The malt is far from as heavy as the color can imply, with body light to medium. Roasted malt in front, but no pronounced burnt character. That’s why it’s misleading when the beertype is called brother of porter (London porter). It have more in common with a traditional dark English mild (difficult to find). Unlike many dark ales, the butteryness is absent, and the fruityness is very low. So it’s no doubt that the beer type can be categorized within the Bavarian tradition. Read; clear and pure flavor profile. I think this beer from San Servolo is in the top class in together with the best samples from Germany and Japan (!).

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 10. 7. 2017, Klimno. Bottled. Mediocre dark beer with some roasted malts. Nothing out of the ordinary.
