De color ben negre amb una escuma cafetera. Aroma de xocolata torrat i notes de cafè. En boca és ben bé el mateix. Bon equilibri entre la xocolata dolça, el pi i petites dosis de fum i fusta, tabac i un final llarg.

Pours a perfectly dark black color with a 1/2 inch head at best when poured aggressively. Aroma is chocolate, malt, dried coffee, licorice, rich caramel, a deep smoke, and vanilla. Taste is similar but a bit more roasty, dark chocolate and bitter smokey chocolate play off of a very mild caramel, vanilla, and coffee flavor. Overall a great but very deep porter, one that is great but not very sessionable.

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.

4.3
Marian1990 (503) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
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.
