beerman89 (38) - Greater London, - JAN 6, 2013
Interesting and complex. Aroma is hoppy with some coffee, licorice and tropical fruits. There is some strawberry sauce in there somewhere. The taste is immediately bitter espresso and chocolate, with the hops and tropical fruits trying to push through but the coffee dominates. There is a bitter finish with a slightly sweet, candy like aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Unique, and very nice!

robinshute123 (56) - 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.

kaserov (926) - 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 (950) - 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!

4.2
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
