Roasted notes, coffee, chocolate, practically black with a good tan head, medium body, too carbonated for me, again cholate than the hoppy profile with citrus...good beer.

hawthorne00 (3662) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2016
330ml bottle, thanks to my wife. 6% ABV, Mosaic hops. Almost black, an inch of light tan head. Rich chocolate aroma with some brown sugar, peaches and light tropical fruit, hint of pine. Any fear than Mosaic isnt going to work here allayed. Lightish bodied, carbonation is a little on the high side. Mocha in the background providing richness but not much sweetness. A bit of licorice. Firm bitterness than builds out of the malt side of things and leaves nice fruit flavours lingering along with modest roasted ones.

ALIBALI (1109) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2016 Ein Weltkasse Porter!!!! Wenn man denn auf Verhopfungen steht. Aber der Reihe nach. Optisch perfekt, die leicht brunliche Schaumkrone ist gut haltbar und wirkt schn cremig. Der Sud selbst ist undurchsichtig schwarz und nur am Glasrand schimmert es wollstig dunkelrot. Mmmmhhhhhh. Pfeffriger Rstrotfruchtalarm vom Allerfeinsten. ppig. Das Nschen freuts. Leider hlt der Trunk den geweckten Erwartungen nicht ganz stand, was allerdings Kritik auf hchsten Niveau ist, denn der strotzt trotzdem vor lauter schlanken portertypischen Rstflavours, inklusive der bereits erwhnten Hopfenkraft des groen Hr.Centennial. Die Bittere hlt sich im mittleren Intensittbereich auf und driftet hin und wieder ins Suerliche ab. Toll. 0,33/Ca. 4. Flasche. BEYOND BEER HH. Im Nachhall kommt sogar noch eine ledrige Wilderness durch.....Yippie!!! Und auch BIPA Verweise finden, nicht unerwartet, statt. Coole Socke, das gute Stck.

Scurissima, quasi nera. Laroma trova riscontro nel gusto con forti note di caff, malti torrefatti e frutta rossa. Buona!!!

anstei (1460) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from Beersnmore. A smooth porter with a focus and drinkability and balance. As such, the dark malts are pleasantly simple but decent (chocolate, some nuts, a bit toasted, hints of ripe dark fruit), the body medium with support of a soft carbonation and a light bitterness. Aroma hops are notable on the palate. Very round. Great beer.

bartlebier (3632) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2016
33cl bottled 03/2016 - shared at bastardas Post-Baltikum tasting Sep 2016, terviseks! - Some Grand Manier fumes hovering over a rich and satisfying Viennese coffee aroma, cocoa powder and earthy Jaffa cakes. Dry, hoppy with fragrant orange peel bitters and resins, quenching the roasted malt sugars, ending on some char and bitter chocolate. Luscious pillowy smooth and suave mouthfeel.

ATulloch (231) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Deeside drinks emporium. Pours a jet black with a toffee coloured head. Aromas of cold pressed coffee, wood smoke and a slight bitterness. Flavour is again coffee with bitter dark chocolate and burnt crusty bread. Lovely porter.
