Very dark color like a tar. Burnt malt, crust of dark bread in the taste. Middle body with rich taste. Middle bitterness in the finish.

Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2016
500ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black color. Medium size, tan head, stays. Roast, bit of coffee, caramel and malty in aroma. Roast, nettles, faint coffee and some spicy hops in taste. Spicy hops and roast in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Medium bitterness. Feels macroish.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Raisins, roasted malts and molasses combine in this flavorful but somewhat anemic example.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-hued black.
-This lacks body for a Stout.
-The mild bitterness could be more generous to balance out the malt character.
-These malts contribute enjoyable, non-linear flavors.


Mad_Ferret (1017) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle at Stika, Budapest. Black and clear with brown tints and a brown head. Roasted bitter tarry aroma with chocolate and coffee, dark fruit and slight nail polish. Taste is slight sweet and bitter roasted with caramel and coffee, fudge and vanilla, broken twigs, dark berries. Pretty bitter ashy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily to dry texture. Nice old school british porter. Fairly ashy bitter though.

Desverger (11423) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle from Meny (Amager), Copenhagen - black pour with beige head. Medium roasted and medium sweet malty, some chocolate, caramel, some burnt malty notes, smooth easy going stout.

GuideDogSaint (1482) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 21, 2016
Described as a porter on the label but hey ho. 500ml bottle from a Tesco in Xiamen, China. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of burnt malt with treacle. Sweet finish, a little thin. Drinkable.

mandaritto (246) - LATVIA - JUN 20, 2016
Roasted malts, coffee, a bit wattery. Very decent surprise from this brevery. Decent brew!

Vells (1846) - Rīga, LATVIA - JUN 20, 2016
Simple but quite nice. Roasted maltiness, marshmallow, coffee, bit even smoked. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Smooth, but bit watery aftertaste. Otherwise - lovely

massingasetta (744) - München, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
When it comes to stout the minute differences are everything and this beer is very intricate in its taste specifics. It sure is exremely smooth and soothing (especially after an extremely strong beer before).. It has everything a stout needs to have and is convincing. A good stout.
