500ml bottle. ar: herbal hop and roasty. ap: black, minimal head, lacing. ta: medium sweetness, medium bitterness. pa: medium body, texture oily-creamy, carbonation lively. Finish: lingering bitterness and malt. Overall: well-flavoured stout/porter. Choice of hops compliment the roasty backbone.

Szulo (178) - Płock, POLAND - AUG 5, 2017
W aromacie z butelki unosi się dużo nut gorzkiej czekolady, palonych słodów, może nawet jest lekko popiołowe. Po przełknięciu nadchodzi przyjemna kremowość, słodycz tuż po przełknięciu jest od razu kontrowana palonością ze słodów, dużo gorzkiej czekolady oraz coś jakby orzechów włoskich. Piwo również jest solidnie nachmielowe, głównie czuć nuty żywiczne w aromacie natomiast w smaku goryczka jest obecna ale nie zalegająca i całkiem przyjemna w miarę picia.

Keg. Aroma licorice and coffee malts. Pours expresso black with white lacing. Taste is medium sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

Ciemne, mocne piwo z ładną pianą. W aromacie i smaku mocna czekolada, kawa i odrobina szyszek

Zlotta (3425) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2017
Sampled from tap at ’Craftbeer Corner Coeln’. Pitch black with an off-white head. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty and slightly resiny aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and some pine. Slightly sweetish, malty, rather roasty and slightly resiny taste of dark chocolate, lots of coffee, some licorice and hints of pine, followed by a medium long, rather dry-bitter and slightly resiny finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice, although less hoppy than the name suggests.

From 330ml bottle. Pours with huge light tan small bubbled head with great retention. Aroma of roast, american hops, and dark berries. Flavour of deep roastiness, hints of coffee, oak, dark fruit, subtle hint of booze. Lingering taste of roast malt and dark chocolate that lingers a little too long. Decent lacing. Quite oily. A good sipping beer

hauxe (837) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2017
Pours dark brown from the bottle and leaves a brown, frothy head. Aroma goes at first into chocolate, then the hops come through and remind very much of an IPA — pine and grapefruit being evident. Taste is bittersweet but with the bitter component gaining the upper hand. Medium bodied, very dry, with a feel in the mouth of wet cotton. Makes you thirsty. Overall though, not bad. Certainly not a traditional porter, and feels throughout much more like a black IPA.

Fresh from the tap at Muted Horn. Fine roasty notes in the nose. Roasty mouth, but at least light watery.

jakiś rześki ten porter, jak czarna bryza, bardzo ciekawe, osobne piwo

Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 21, 2017
Aroma: maltas tostadas, café, lúpulo floral, hierba. Aspecto: negro, medio, cremoso, cabeza amarillenta. Sabor: ligero amargo. Boca: intensidad de amargos, lúpulo floral, malta tostada, hierba, acabado seco. En general: gran Porter, muy lupulada en aroma y paladar

ardeo (454) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2017
Bottle 33 best before 30.12.17. Aspect : noire à belle mousse beige. Arômes : sur le fruit notamment les agrumes, le résineux, le caramel brûlé, le chocolat, le café (mais pas si évident), la réglisse ... que sais-je encore ? Saveurs : entrée en bouche bien fraîche puis les malts rôtis se développent en compagnie des houblons ce qui donne : chocolat, citron, café, ... et une belle amertume tout au long. Terrific Porter ! Not far from a Black IPA !
