Bottle. Black with ruby tint. Roast Malty (roast malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel & toffee). Fruity (berries). Nice hops balancing the malts. Sweetish with slight sour fruity edge. Slightly dry roasty finish. Smooth, delicious, easy drinking. Very nice Porter! (2008)

Średnio obfita piana, ciemny bursztyn. Aromat przyjemny, mleczna czekolada, karmel, skrka od chleba. W smaku więcej chlebowości, wytrawne. Delikatnie chmielowe i palone. Goryczka do umiarkowanej, nasycenie umiarkowane.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a dirty-tan head that is frothy and fades slowly. Smells of chocolate and coffee are very prominent, but there are undertones of caramel too. The initial taste is a slightly bitter with a bit of a metallic tinge. Which is a bit unsettling, because the aromas tend to indicate youre about to drink something sweet. It is medium-bodied with average carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish. Overall, a beer that I like and will probably buy again.

Piwo w szkle ma ciemnobrązową barwę, pod światło widać, że jest klarowne i rubinowe. Piana jest jasnobeżowa, bardzo obfita, zbudowana z drobnych i małych oczek, trwała, długo na powierzchni utrzymuje się ładny kożuszek, a także bogate zdobienia na ściankach. Wygląda dobrze. W aromacie jest trochę czekolady, jeszcze z butelki czułem wyraźne owoce, ni to wiśnię, ni to śliwkę, ni to świeże, ni suszone, w każdym razie po przelaniu do szkła ta nuta owocowa gdzieś się ulotniła i pachnie już bardzo przeciętnie. W smaku najwyraźniej zwraca uwagę ziołowo-czekoladowa goryczka, nieco zbyt wysoka jak na Porter, albo piwu brakuje nieco słodyczy, nieco ciała, dla ktrych ta goryczka byłaby kontrą, a nie grała pierwsze skrzypce, przy okazji nieco zalegając. Gdzieś z tyłu wraca nuta suszonych owocw. Wysycenie jest niskie, choć zauważalne, lekko musujące w ustach. Piwo nadaje się do wypicia, ale dla mnie to nic specjalnego. Choćby w Polsce mamy dużo lepszych Porterw i wcale nie mam na myśli tych Bałtyckich.

Mrkbrun med tjockt beigebrunt skum. Doftar lite stt av choklad och brnd malt. Smaken ganska fyllig med brnda maltsta toner. Eftersmaken hyggligt lng med bde beska och stma. Ovanlig porter, men god!

Pours dark brown from the bottle. The large tan head is foamy, and rapidly settles. The aroma is milk chocolate up front, but underlayered with tinges of way overripe plum. The taste starts lightly bitter, metallic, with notes of chocolate, charcoal, and light tartness. Finishes with a bitter sour taste that leaves an overall one dimensional impression. Also unimpressive is the body, which is a touch thinner than I would like. Combined with faint hints of alcohol and a charcoal ash flavor, the brew left me feeling thirsty. Reading this back it all sounds pretty dire, but its not an entirely bad beer. Its very finishable, and the aroma is nice, but there are a lot of flaws here.

Pours a dark brown, no real hop aroma, more coffee and roasted malt. Kind of sweet and rich. Really liked it.

Dark almost invisible brown color with small but strong latte foam. Smells nice roast malts. Taste are roast malt with some kind dark chocolate and a bit vanilla. Maybe a bit watery. Aftertaste are medium some dark bred with small notes of cinnamon. Not bad as porter.

Mortlach (2182) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 16, 2017
330ml bottle bought @Eataly (Rome) with Pippi. Bruna, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caff di torrefazione, cioccolato fondente, melassa. In bocca meravigliosamente bilanciata, una grandissima bevuta, attacco dolce con finale amaro perfetto. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Gran birra!
