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.

4.1
robinshute123 (60) - Torquay, Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2017
Dark black porter. Exotic and bold in flavour, interesting beer, have had a few like this before but the citra hops make it stand out and a bit different for a porter.

3.8
kaserov (993) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 25, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención, nunca llega a disiparse del todo). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa (no sé si hubiera ganado un extra con algo más de cuerpo, he ahí la duda). Perfecto balance entre torrefactos, cítricos y resina. Aroma a malta torrefacta, café frío, cítricos, pino y resina. En boca hay más presencia de cítricos, pino y resina desde el inicio del trago. Malta torrefacta de fondo, con reminiscencias de chocolate y bastante café puro. Final torrefacto, de ligerísimo amargor. Seca. Cítricos, resina y café en postgusto. Para mí más CDA que Porter, aunque gana mucho si se toma casi a temperatura ambiente, con un golpe mínimo de frío en la nevera.

3.8
Juks (1070) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2017
330ml bottle (bottled 05.08.14). Pours black, fluffy beige head. Aroma is roasty, chocolatey, woody, bit ashy. Taste is roasty, dry, citrussy, hoppy. Finish is roasty-hoppy. Well balanced taste between roastiness and hops. Medium body, over average carbo. Well aged porter, and surprisingly there are still lots of hops in taste, good!
