jonas (7209) - Garching b. Mnchen, - JAN 16, 2013
Tap at La Tape, Madrid. Black, golden brown creamy lace. Dark roast coffee. Dry sparkly roasted body. Nice toast and coffee notes, well balanced to the herbal licorice and genever-like notes. Chocolate retronasal. Easygoing, flavorfull and drinkable Porter.

graziano85 (447) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle, 6.4%, hops: galaxy, chinook, exp431. Pitch black, with a nice creamy brown head, staying and a bit lacing. Aroma is "wow!": coffee, roasted malt, and the hops, amazing, resin. Then the taste is surprisingly different, the roasted malts are the most evident note, coffee again, chocolate, the resin hops are still there but more if in the aroma they are the main note, in the taste they are more on the background. Medium-low carbonation, oily texture, bitter finish. Great beer.

MatiF96 (125) - POLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bardzo ładny wygląd, brązowa drobnopęcherzowa piana i czarna barwa piwa. Aromat przyjemny, chmielowy, mocno kawowy, do tego gorzka czekolada. W smaku podobnie. Intensywna chmielowość, mimo tego bardziej wyrazista jest kawa, przyjemna, bardzo długo utrzymująca się na języku. Kremowa faktura. Amerykańskie odmiany chmielu wnoszą ciekawe nuty do piwa, nieco przypomina Black IPA, jednak wciąż dominuje porterowy charakter. Bardzo udane piwo, świetny balans

DuffMan (9928) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle, from minutemat (thanks!). Dark brown, amber highlights, beige head. Big piney green hop character with full bodied roast. This could easily qualify as a black IPA! Really tasty.
