Good porter that Sierra Nevada stamped with their uniqueness. The aromas where of roasted malts but not as pronounced as I would have preferred. Dark cloudy brown with not a significant head. The palate was medium-bodied with average carbonation. Strong roastiness with a nuttiness. The hops presence was definitely there, which balanced it out well.

swapp (345) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - JAN 18, 2017
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 (2117) - 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!

Zarrach76 (128) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 5, 2017
Belle brune transparente avec de profonds reflets grenat et une trs grosse mousse ivoire bien dense. Nez trs malt, avec des armes de gteau de riz au caramel, de chocolat au lait, de cassonade, de meringue, de caf, de pruneau, de pomme cuite, de noisette, de miel... Texture trs ronde, douce, un peu trop sur leau. Alcool quasi-inexistant. Carbonatation faible. Lamertume est lgre, en retrait. Bonne levure cependant. Final sur lamertume et les armes malts (caf et cacao). Peu de sucres sur ce breuvage. Notes lointaines de bois (pin) et de cuir. Finalement cest une bonne porter juste gche par un palet et une texture bien trop sages... Bouteille 35.5cl, V&B Grenoble.

Luneylane (78) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 24, 2016
A bottle from City Super in the basement of Sogo at Zhongxiao Fuxing, drunk at home. Aroma: chocolatey with rather disappointing vinegary notes. Appearance: opaque, dark chocolate, minimal tan head. Palate: medium-bodied, rather thin, soft carbonation. Pleasingly roasted malt finish, regardless of the somewhat sour aroma. Taste: medium, falls between bitter and sour. Not bad.

Dark brown color with amber at the edges. Light tan head of thin foam. Light chocolate and caramel notes with a roast character in the slightest, a very lightweight porter of both sound and substance.

Pours dark brown, some copper. Tan head. Roast coffee aroma. Lots of sweet malt flavor, cocoa. Smooth, carbonated mouthfeel. Decent.

OCZY: czarne, bardzo obfita piana powolutku opada do chmury, nieźle zdobi szkło;
NOS: czekolada, rum, rodzynka, delikatny orzech włoski;
USTA: ciało niskie, nisko nasycone, gładkie, okrągłe, lekko wykleja podniebienie;
JĘZYK: kwaskowa paloność między kawą a kakao, orzech włoski, niska kakaowa goryczka;
OGLNIE: nienajgorsze, pijalne, choć niezbyt bogate; ciekawe są w nim nuty orzechowe.
