Beautiful smoked porter, better than most I've tasted. It has a cheerie melody of tastes like liquorice, chocolate, hints of rum and sugar. I have a lovehate relationship towards To Ol, but this one pays out deeply!

Paloność, gorzka czekolada, żywica. Sporo ciała, niewiele słodyczy, balans zdecydowanie przesunięty w stronę wytrawności. Gładkie, kremowe, nisko wysycone. Wysoka goryczka.

Tasted on 07.09.17. Small beige head disappearing to thin layer. Completely black colour. Great aroma of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Very intensive roasted and hoppy bitterness in taste with bitter chocolate. Almost stout.

Tumma lasissa jättäen ruskean vaahdon. Tuoksu selvästi paahteinen. Maku on suht täyteläinen, edelleen paahteinen ja hieman suklainen. Erittäin nautittava porter.

Aromat: kawa, czekolada , palonosc. Wyglad: czarne, piana bezowa drobne pecherze. Smak: slodkawe, goryczka wysoka jak na styl. Odczucie w ustach: pelne, gladkie, wysycenie niskie. Ogolnie: przyjemny imperial stout. Goryczkowy raczej.

eManu (556) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2017
From Draft @ Taps Beer Bar KL. Pours a very black body with a nice long lasting dark beige creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavors are nice and rich, roasted malts, rich dark chocolate, spices, coffee, some hops. Nice balance of tasty flavors, light sweetness and medium bitterness with a somewhat dry finish. Very tasty, hey i had two of them....why not. lovely.

Pyobon (1494) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2017
(On tap) Black with good dense tan head. Nice aroma - dark roast malt mainly. Lovely mouthfeel - smooth medium body with creamy carbonation. Great taste - rich and complex. Dark toffee, raisins, alcohol; nice bitterness in finish. Very good.

alteregoo (1738) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 3, 2017
Obfita, beżowa, średnio oczkowa piana z ładnym lejsingiem. Ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta barwa. W aromacie głównie czekolada, praliny, słonecznik, żywica... W smaku sporo słodyczy, czekolady, cappuccino, iglaków. Solidna, żywiczno palona goryczka, Niskie do średniego wysycenie, półpełne, wyklejające w odbiorze.
Smakuje to jak blend solidnego BIPA z solidnym imperialnym porterem. Fajne, ale zbyt goryczkowe, zbyt chmielowe mimo wszystko.
