BlazerT (1000) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Dark brown with medium, semi-thick, light brown head. Good head retention and moderate lacing. Moderately malty aroma - roasted, caramel, chocolate, coffee. Moderate hoppy aroma - mainly citrus (orange, grapefruit), slightly piney. Taste is moderately bitter and moderately sweet, quite hoppy. The bitterness lasts for quite a long time ends up with some grassy and ashy notes. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is bitter, grapefruit, roasted, slightly chocolate and earthy. Summary: Taste and aroma are acceptable, nothing really outstanding. The good thing is quite diverse aroma as for the porter. Still slightly dusty, but in overall very good brew.

invinoveritas (148) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Pours a dark viscous cola brown with a light head. Hop-forward nose and indeed hop-forward tongue. Theres a nice coffee-chocolate oily malty bitterness underneath but its drowned out by the extremely assertive hops. Hoppy finish as well!
