imperator_lrrr (6) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016 does not count
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Szybko opadająca, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, utrzymuje się cieńką warstewką do końca picia, ładnie oblepiając szkło. W zapachu pierwsze rzucają się amerykańskie chmiele, zaraz potem paloność, czekolada, skrka chlebowa. W smaku chmielowe mango, w tle lekka kwaskowatość, paloność Nasycenie nie za wysokie, bardzo przyjemne.

BenL8 (150) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Very black with a nice mocha head which remains for a long time. Aroma has some dark malts but is dominated by hops. I estimate mosaic, there is that unique mosaic aroma of spicy/herbal earthiness. Flavour is similar. Medium body, dark malts give a chocolatey and coffee-like base. Beer is very hoppy, herbal/earthy. Has a delicious long finish with resiny, herbal hoppiness and dry chocolate. Wow. Awesome beer.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle (from the Bierkoning,NL): Almost black,medium-sized and stable creamy and lacy tanned head; moderate to solid bitter-sweet nose of roasted malt, dried fruits, cacao&vanilla plus spicy hops in the background; almost solid bitter-sweet flavour with delicate sourish traces, medium bodied , soft to silky MF; lingering drier roasty and chocolatey finish with an increasing bitterness in the aftertaste. A very nice Porter...

dambor (610) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours dark brown with medium head. Aroma: nice hops aroma, in particular some herbs, roasted sunflower seeds, plus roasted malt. Taste: roasted malt, again tons of hops reminding me of herbs, some coffee and chocolate. Very good.

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 (3810) - 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.
