Bottle. Another classic that I fell in love with during my early beer geek days up for rating; this one has been largely unavailable in Norway a few years but is now back in the game. :-) Pours a deep brown-black body with a ruby taint and a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and deep malty tones rounded off by a gentle dark berry-like fruitiness and hints of freshly cut grass. Taste is smooth roasty coffee tones, dark chocolate, nuts and hints of licorice and leather. Incredibly smooth and creamy mouthfeel, as I can remember being one of the captivating factors that made me love this beer. I still do, fortunately, as sometimes re-visiting old friends in the beer world can be very different than remembered...

*Bottle from Schneiders Getränke, Köln. Fantastic deep roasted chocolate malt. Coffee, not too bitter, not too sweetish. Round and intense with lots of chocolate and roast. Vanilla hints, nice bittered, extreme round and great!

vinivini (2582) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 27, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy deep brown. Beige head. Aroma & taste: caramel, treacle, dried fruit. Light to medium body. Light sweet. Strange for an American Porter. Something must be wrong with the bottle.

Tuoksussa hieman paahteisuutta, suklaata ja maltaita. Maku on tasapainoinen, mutta ei toisaalta valtavan rikas. Mallasleipä maistuu ja myös hieman humala. Perushyvä porter, joka ei petä, mutta ei tuo valtavaa yllätystäkään.

3.5
Dervock (1379) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle - pours brown with a lacy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, nuts and roast malt. Taste is roast malt and chocolate with a building sweetness into the finish.
