0,33l bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours pitch black with a low tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with some coffee. Flavor is roasted malts with coffee and alcohol. Very soft and creamy. Good stuff.

Black colour, big and dense mocha head, good persistence and lacing. Aroma shows roasted malts, nicely balanced by soft nuttiness, plus dusty hints and slight fruitiness. Overall very clean and quite vivid. Taste has semi sweet (nutty) and semi roasted maltiness (hints of coffee), again a slight dusty feel and some red fruits in the background. Finishes quick with a good dose of clean-cut dry bitterness. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, quite creamy but still easy to drink. Abv is wonderfully hidden. Overall a robust but still pretty easily drinkable porter. Well done

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel: belle robe brune surmontée d’une épaisse mousse couleur café avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes houblonnés ,fumés et vineux.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs de café et chocolat avec une forte amertume qui domine l’ensemble nous laissant sur une finale très plaisante, sans aucune lourdeur.Un excellent Impérial Porter!!!

BOTTLE 33 CL. Pitch black, huge dark mocha head. Nice dark malts dashed with a good deal of hops - green grassy notes to flowery, rosebud aromas. Similar taste - malty/fruity, with flowers hops and a strong sharp bitter furnish. Very nice.

appiantiqua (180) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2017
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début 9 à 10°. Superbe robe opaque ébène surmontée d’une mousse de couleur café généreuse et assez persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez exceptionnel qui combine habilement les arômes houblonnés et torréfiés. Le goût est du même niveau avec des saveurs de chocolat amer et de café le tout dans un équilibre qui penche plutôt en faveur de l’amertume; l’alcool s’intègre parfaitement. La finale est longue et des plus plaisante: complexe et sans lourdeur avec le retour du café. Une remarquable bière noire houblonnée.

Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2017
Black. Roasted barley, caramel, liquorice and soy in the aroma. Full and strong taste up front, somewhat sweet, with malty, spicy and roasted flavours, full-bodied and smooth, and a highly bitter finish. Overall, a great porter. Heavy, rich and bittersweet. Quite similar to Mikkeller’s Porter.

CanCrusher (1066) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 16, 2017
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.
