This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Lele (468) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 2, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone molto scuro, praticamente impenetrabile a bicchiere pieno. Schiuma marroncino chiaro, fine, poco abbondante e poco persistente. AROMA: aroma non intenso, ma ben avvertibile sentori di leggero marzapane e tostato. GUSTO: tostato, liquirizia e un leggero marzapane le fanno da padrone. Chiude con un leggero amarognolo tostato. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione media. CONCLUSIONE: birra pulita e ben fatta, che disseta e d soddisfazioni.

tfontana (835) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is roasted malt, toffee. Appearance is dark, dark mahogany--almost black--with finger-width light brown head with poor retention but decent lacing. Taste is roasted malt with dark fruits and toffee, hint of bitter coffee at end. Palate is medium bodied with creamy, thick texture, soft carbonation and mostly bitter, dry finish. Overall, a decent amount going on and a nice change from American-style porters.

BenL8 (89) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Appearance: very dark brown clear colour, some little head which dissipates quickly. Some carbonation is visible albeit not a lot. Aroma: very nice, complex aroma, intense nutty aroma and very biscuity. Complex old ale character is noticeable. Caramel and chocolate notes. Very nice. Flavour: rather mild but complex. Nutty and a bit spicy, some biscuit malt. Some hops shines through as does some bitterness but only very mildly. Really great porter.

Cachobrewski (15) - MEXICO - MAY 16, 2016
Nice dark color but the head is gone quickly. Aroma is dark malts and caramel, deep toffee, some maple syrup. Flavor: Starts as a sweet, rich, malty brew that quickly turns into a very complex and pleasant, mature and flowery beverage with an extremely balanced and tasty end. This is an excellent beer, from one of the best breweries in the world.

demannu (417) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2016
This beer had some nice porter qualities especial in the flavor but some of the accompanying flavors left me a bit underwhelmed overall. The body was watery in feel with a bit more carbonation than i like. Decent stuff but wouldnt grab this again.

nephirem (328) - CROATIA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours dark ruby, almost black color with practically no head. Smell is mostly roasted malts and coffee. A bit cake-like. Medium body with regular carbonation and a bit watery texture. Taste is mostly bittersweet with bitternes coming mostly from alcohol, giving this beer a slightly boozy aftertaste. Aroma of dark fruits and berries, roasted malts, coffe beans, cake and alcohol. Slightly smoked. Finish is a bit dry with bitternes lingering on the tongue. Overall, very nice.

BeerRenter76 (862) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/16/08. Pours a dark body, amber when held to the light, a thin but lasting head. Mouthfeel a little thin but not bad. Aroma was nice, smelled of molasses and plums. Flavor was similar, kind of sweet but not overly so. A pretty good beer.
