Demise (57) - Wellington, - OCT 30, 2009
Pours black with ruby edging and a tan head. Strong chocolate aromas, with dark malt and a touch of coffee. Tastes incredibly dark and rich - dark roasted malt, a little burnt, rich coffee flavours and a hint of dark chocolate. A bitter finish, a little fizzy on the palate but very smooth otherwise. Nice, very nice.

21. 7. 2017, Klimno. Bottled. Not really a porter would I say. Below expectations. Murky and not defined well. Could have been better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Demens (443) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 21, 2017
0,5l bottle. Very thich black colour with big but shrinking and lasting creamy beige head. Aroma: Roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, blackcurrant, blueberry. Taste: Very thich malty start with a short sweet caracter then a light sourish grainy tone. After that a significant but pleasing bitter mouthfeel comes. Medium body with very soft carbonation. Light but pleasent bitter finish. It’s a smooth and good porter with a body and a good bitter caracter.

Simonsen (1281) - NORWAY - JUL 17, 2017
Flaske. Svart uklar farget. Lavt karbonert med tynn skumtopp. Smaker mørkbrent malt, kaffe samt lakris.

Hermod (7881) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2017
50cl bottle, bought from SuperAlko, Tallinn. BBE 31.8.2017. Poured pitch black in color with a two finger dense off white head. Mild butter at first, milk chocolate and mild roastedness in aroma. Some smoked wood in the back. Smooth mouthfeel. Body is quite light, but does have decent amount of flavors, toffee, milk chocolate, coffee notes and mild woody notes. Long toasty finish with some coffee lingering. Tastes better with every sip.

Gehbe (444) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle. Deep brown to black with a medium light tan head. Fairly weak aroma of dark bread crust, wood, hints of smoke, bandages and chocolate. Roasty bitter taste. Light body, medium carbonation, somewhat waterry but quite drinkable.

rikstar (2604) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2017
Zwart met een mooie stabiele crème kraag. Typische smaak met veel moutbitter trekdrop wel erg vol voor 5% even wennen maar dan wel genieten

FireGlider (590) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2017
Black color with small fast disappearing brown head. Strong burnt malt aroma. Dominant bitter taste with some smokey and light malt sweetness in finish. Not amazed, burnt malt takes all other aromas if there are any.

Hrc_Cro (533) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 19, 2017
0.5l bottle. Black color with nice, but fast disappearing brown head. Aroma of coffee, hops, dark chocolate that gives it some sweetness and heavily roasted malt that also gives it smokey flavor. Taste is very bitter and little sweet, but that sweetness is overwhelmed by intense bitterness.

Alebarasi (105) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - APR 16, 2017
Opaque black color with medium beige head. Medium body and carbonation, no lacing. Aroma of nuts, roasted malts, milk, chocolate, dark fruits (plums), toffee and some cherry & pear. Slightly watery taste with hints of chocolate, espresso, caramel, nuts, and some hops & smoke. Dry coffee aftertaste. Well balanced beer and not complexed at all. Drinkable and enjoyable.

wlajwl (6813) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2017
Aroma and flavor is dark malts, coffee, very mild burnt notes and an acidic finish.
