Bevuta il 11/1/17 @BlackHole in Novara. Bottiglia "Smoked Porter". Nero impenetrabile. Schiuma color nocciola, cremosa e persistente. Al naso note tostate, di caffè e leggermente affumicate. In bocca note caffettose, leggera nocciola, cioccolato al latte. Scaldandosi la nota affumicata al palato emerge sempre più. Poco amara. Texture vellutata. Bel corpo, avvolgente. Finale leggermente secco e con una punta acidula.

Bottle of labelled Viven smoked porter shared with JMD at HNB 23.11.17. Elmost ebony. Foamy brown head and lacing. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, dark syrup, wood, pine, smoke, vanilla and brittle. Good bitterness.

0,33 flaske fra Beligsk Bryg, delt med Ovesen etter endt brygging: brunsvart med flott skum - film og tette kniplinger. Heldigvis er røykpreget svært tilbaketrukket, så denne opplever jeg som en fyldig, ganske saftig og smaksrik porter med mild bitterhet og halvtørr avsluting.

brandy cools (44) - antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2017
Aroma: malt, coffee and caramel-sweetness. Taste: malt-bitterness, salty caramel, somehow bbq-herbs too, coffee... . Appearance: blackest black, bit of head that does not last long. Palate: full body, thick, long finish and the finish lasts with bitter and herbs. I guess it's well made but the combination of bitter/sweet and salty herbs does not work for me. I find it a bit odd. Not my thing at all.

Taengfimeu (5) - Marseille, FRANCE - OCT 25, 2017 does not count
Medium intensity of aromas : sweet and salty , toffee and caramel. Flavours over medium intensity same as aromas. Nicely colored and persistent head. Overall a nice beer to give a shot!

Jimbo2 (572) - DENMARK - OCT 25, 2017
Seems of balance. Plenty of smoke, thin body. Medium carbonation. Would prefer more body.

belle mousse marron qui tient , bière de couleur noir, .houblon amer américain. Gout de malt fortement fumé (un peu trop), pain grillé, réglisse, goudron sont les sensation qui ressorte le plus , texture moelleuse, carbonation normale

yoxik75 (493) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Piana obfita drobna , trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor czarny. Aromat wędzonka ogniskowa, szynkowa, dominuje zapach. Smak podobnie wyraźne wędzone słody, palonośc, czekolada, lekko popiół, akcenty suszonych owoców, karmel. Ciało średnie, nagazowanie zauważalne, alkohol ukryty. Dobry wędzony porter.
