CraftyHare (77) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2017
330ml bottle pours jet black with foamy tan head. Aromas of molasses, charred wood, brown sugar and vegemite. Tastes of smoke, ash, cream and bacon, roasted malt, caramel malt and alcohol. Silky and creamy mouth feel with gentle carbonation. Long smooth savoury finish with a hint of bitterness. Lovely winter warmer.

Pours opaque black with a thick, dense head and beautiful lacing. The aroma is coffee, roasted malts, sweet chocolate. The taste is dark chocolate, coffee with milk. I didn’t get much smoke. It’s very smooth, silky on the palate, there’s gentle alcohol burning. Very nice porter.

Zilverenmaan (197) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2017
Very dark brown, this one, almost black even. Head dark beige, rather small but never completely disappearing. Some lacing. Aroma: lots of woody smoke, some sweet undertones. Taste of smoked malts, distinct coffee-like bitterness. Mouthfeel creamy. Carbonation soft but affecting the taste a little.

kaserov (753) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de cuatro dedos de grosor (grumosa y de muy buena retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura oleosa. Aroma ahumado, torrefacto, chocolatoso. Sabor torrefacto, acaramelado, ahumado (toques de carne ahumada o bacon), chocolatoso. No capto café, la verdad, pero puede ser cosa mía. Postgusto ahumado y a caramelo y chocolate. Hecha a las mil maravillas. Podría ser perfectamente una Porter de cabecera si no fuera porque no es precisamente fácil de conseguir.

DutchMark (397) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2017
Good one. Deep dark with a beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma is nicely smokey. Flavor has smoke, dark chook late, burned malt and bitter hops. Rich full flavor. The smoke is prominent but overpowering.

Kolor ciemno br?zowy. Piana ma barw? jasno br?zow?, jest do?? wysoka i trwa?a bardzo ?adnie zdobi szk?o. W aromacie palono?? i nuty dymione, w?dzone. Delikatnie kawa i czekolada. Ale i tak, wiod?ce nuty to akcemty ogniskowe. Smak to akcenty ogniskowe, gorzka kawa, palono?? s?odów, i s?odycz karmelu. Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje, piwo od Viven ma do?? oleist? i "grub?" faktur?, jest g?adkie i pe?ne.
