leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - AUG 1, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore marrone scuro, quasi nero; schiuma color kaki, abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Al naso presenziano: malto tostato, insieme con aromi di caff, pane fresco scuro, cioccolato fondente e tabacco. In bocca rispetta le aspettative: pane tostato, pancetta affumicata, liquirizia; note di frutta secca, asciutta ed un amaro pronunciato. Ancora leggere note di cioccolato, caff e tostature; corpo medio-pieno, discreta carbonazione.

yourilevesque (1610) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2016
Merci Ju-Lo pour le partage! Un liquide trs noir la mousse plutt claire que je parviens raviver chaque fois quelle semble mourir tant le liquide est crmeux et gnreux. Nez de bche calcine, de braises rouges et de marshmallow rtis sur feu de camps. Une pointe danis galement. Mouthfeel agrable lors de lattaque, ponctu par une effervescence frache et franche. Encore ces malts rtis en bouche. Finale plutt aqueuse et poussireuse, sans arrire-got aucun si ce nest quun caf froid et plaisant. Un porter agrable et Belge!

Metalchopz (3203) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours a dark brown colour with a frothy beige head, great retention and creamy lacing. Beautiful mild smokiness with roasted malts, hints of dark fruits and hints of vanilla. The taste has the roasted malts, fruits and light smoke in the finish. Alcohol is well-hidden. Easy to drink with not too much smokiness.
