4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very stout like pour and judging from appearance this is already living up to its name. On the aroma I’m picking up a lot of bitter black coffee and semi-sweet chocolate with a nice roasted quality. The taste is up front with coffee and more of those roasted notes, bitter chocolate and finishes with some hop bitterness. The mouth feel is medium to full bodied. This is a porter that lives up to its name, exactly what comes to mind when i picture a porter.
Pours black with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is toffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate, warming to strong roast and coffee flavors. Finish is smooth and light roast. While not in the same class as their S'Muttonator or Baltic Porter, this is still among the best Smuttynose offerings. yoxik75 (460) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 23, 2017
Piana drobna kremowa, redukuje się do krążka, zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny, pod światło rubin. Aromat ciemne słody, gorzka czekolada, kawa, przyjemny. Smak uderza gorzka czekolada, potem kawa, pełne w odczuciu z słodką owocową nutą ALE-ową i lekkim kwaskiem od palonych słodów. Goryczka wyraźna średnia do wysokiej, alkohol ukryty. Piwo złożone bardzo dobre lecz nie porywa jest zbyt grzeczne Zilverenmaan (316) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2017
