Nice porter. Cola like flavor with balanced malts. Nice tan head, perhaps a bit thin.

En positiv overraskelse. En god og fyldig porter. Fin smag af ristet malt. Tilpas bitter.

Bottle. Clear brown beer, average tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, mild coffee and milk chocolate. Taste is light to medium sweet and bitter, cocoa, caramel, bread, mild coffee, rather lasting bitterness. Medium- body, thin texture, average carbonation. Decent, ordinary stuff.

tricksta_p (4102) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malt, mild coffee, caramel, cocoa, hazelnuts. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium. Not as creamy as Id like, that being said the cocoa chocolate aroma is very pleasant and this has an easy drinking smooth balance. Good Porter!

Zlotta (2762) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2017
Sampled from 0.355 l bottle. Clear, very dark red to brown with a frothy, beige head. Sweetish, quite roasty-malty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and hints of hazelnut. Moderately sweet, quite roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and hazelnut, followed by a medium long, quite roasty-bitter, very dry finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Tasty!

oobawa (971) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2017
A rounded, modest porter, leaning more English than robust, kicking up notes of roasted chocolate and a mild bready undertone without ever growing sweet or heavy. Pours an acceptable brown, yet the head never really comes through, and the nose is mostly cocoa. Taste doesnt grow much beyond the initial chocolate, maybe developing a hint of mocha bitterness as it opens up, slight cherry and coffee on the back end. Finishes semisweet with a welcome hop presence. A classic porter, one that hooked me on the style, but a bit dated and slight now.

john44 (2897) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
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!
