Bottle 0,33L. Black color with big, light brown, creamy head. Aroma of dark chocolate, pudding, caramel, touch of brandy and nuts. Taste starts light sweet and chocolaty, than turns to medium to heavy bitter finish with a lot of dark chocolate and dark coffee. Really good, smooth and tasty porter.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella tummalla vaahdolla, joka pysyy hienosti. Tuoksusta tunkeutuu läpi kahvisuus, suklaatakin on, mutta huomattavasti vähemmän. Tuoksun yleisilme on hieman oksidoituneen oloinen ja se on myös aika heikko. Tässä vaiheessa epäilyttää, onko osunut huono pullo.. Maussa ei ole mitään merkkejä pilaantuneisuudesta, se on tuhdin kahvinen, suklainen, maamainen ja karamellinenkin. Tupakkaakin on paljon. Hieman makeahkoa tummaa hedelmäisyyttä on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on melko tuhdisti humaloitu, mutta hyvin täyteläinen ja tuhti. Erikoista, että tuoksu jää noin paljon maun perään, koska tässä kuitenkin oli vahvat, mutta samalla selkeät maut. Vaikka puhutaan porterista, niin kahvista paahdetta tuntui omaan nenään ja suuhn yllättävän paljon. Olin odottanut tätä olutta todella kauan, mutta aivan odotuksia ei pystytty lunastamaan.

Bottle from Alko. Black with strong tan head. Strong vanilla, chocolate and coffee with some burnt malt. Char with coffee beans, cocoa and smoke. Quite bitter and not too sweet. Medium body, smooth palate reminiscent of totally different types of porters. Smoky finish.

bibop49 (37) - NANTES, FRANCE - MAR 30, 2017
ça sent le chocolat le sucre et les agrumes, la couleur est d’un noir intense avec une mousse bien épaisse et colorée. En gout on retrouve le chocolat doublé d’une légère amertume laissant une bouche légèrement alcooleuse.

nearbeer (5230) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2017
33 cl. no bottling date. Pours stout black with a disc of creamy foam. Aroma is dark bread, dark chocolate, soy, cream and char. Tastes of the same mix plus some caramel. A little char and ash on the finish. Medium-heavy body is silky smooth with low carbonation and a good balance.
