larsga (7542) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2017
Small beige head. Opaque black body. Sweetish earthy mealy roasty taste with caramelly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Sweetish toasty toffee and caramel aftertaste with dusty resiny notes. Long, lingering caramel finish. Lovely! Full of flavour, smooth, easy-drinking. (0.3l draft at Popeye, Tokyo.)

(En fût au Pub Edo): Douce mélasse, mocha rôti, pain grillé et une filiformité acceptable. Buvabilité musclée.

Ritzn (1426) - GERMANY - AUG 20, 2016
Lots of coffee, very bitter. A little phenolic. Smooth finish. Some cherries maybe. Too bitter for me.

Iznogud (3811) - CROATIA - AUG 18, 2016
On tap at Aldgate as Aldgate Porter. Still not 100% sure if this is Swan Lake or Sankt Gallen. Pours dark brown, small beige head. Medium roastiness, dark chocolate, coffee, sweetish. Medium bodied. Decent.

Meilby (11496) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle 330ml @ Nøgne Ø
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and funk. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long chocolate, coffee, funky and sourish finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Don’t know if the tartness are intentional but it’s pretty good.

minihame2 (642) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Tap. Appearance is black and bubbly, like cola without the foam. Aroma is not too strong but you get a bit of roasted malts. Taste is neutral, there is only a little bit of bitterness in it. Soft mouthfeel, carbonation is pretty easy as usual. It’s an OK porter but nothing to write home about. Easy to drink for people not familiar with porters because it’s not that strongly flavoured.

3.7
willisread (3350) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2015
On tap at Pub Edo. Dark chocolate, malt, molasses and coffee aromas present. Fairly well-balanced between bitter and sweet. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Once it comes to room temperature fig and prune flavors are also present while the chocolate and coffee tastes are still present. Nice smooth finish with some espresso bitterness.

3.4
mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Draught at Bungalow in Kyoto.
Fairly light tasting almost like a schwarz. Chocolate aroma. Some flavours of coffee roast and chocolate bitterness. Not bad.

Classic porter character, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee beans. Nothing special but quite a drinkable fine porter.
