I Think that there is a melange of things going on all of which add up to a sum of less than the parts.

Kauge (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle from a random shop at Dalston Junction. Brewdog version. BB 03.03.2018. Medium dark brown with steady tan head. Roasty hoppy aroma, malts, slightly pissy of the hops. Tastes roasty sweet with hops in the finish. Slightly rough on the palate but otherwise excellent.

markoijelena (2810) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - DEC 12, 2016
Draft 0.15l at BierProeflokaal In De Wildeman Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 16.11.2016. Pour it dark color with small black head. Aroma yeasty, funky, little bit odd hoppy feel. Taste sweet chocolate, roasted malt, lots of hoppy herbal feel on the back, bitterish finish, easy drinakble, light to medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter.

MaartenRF10 (1929) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2016
Zwart. Kleine lichtbruine kraag. Geur een aparte combi van koffie, groenten en ananas. Smaak fruitige hoptonen, koffie, tabak, groenten. Behoorlijk bitter.

Gangstergafje (818) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2016
The beer has that lovely porter looks, which I love. The color of the beer is black, with a ruby red and brownish glow. The beer seems quite clear. On top of the beer a small layer of foam with the color of roasted almonds is poured. The foam collapses quickly, leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is mild. I smell some coffee, some roasted malts and some smoke. The smell gets stronger after a while. The aroma of oak woad (a barrel aged touch), and nice savoury salty caramel aroma join the bouquet. The taste is stronger from the start. There is a delicious salty caramel flavour. I also taste the smoke, oak wood and roasted barley. I also taste coffee. It has that lovely salty sea thing a porter can have. Its a blend between sweet malts, bitter hops and salty roast flavours. Its beautiful brew that gets better with time. At first its a bit to mild; at the end its a flavour inferno.

explosivedog (565) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 1, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours black without head. Lots of plums, figs, little soy sauce, little chocolate. Quite savoury, with a prominent bitterness. Really quite nice.

BeerViking (4390) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Pours deep dark red-black with a fast-settling head. Nose is pleasantly toasty with hints of red fruit and soy sauce. Body is dry-bitter with roasty-sweet undertones, thick yet dry textured, more hints of soy and a little cocoa, burnt-bitterness and a sweet, almost cloying, edge in the finish.

Heidbummer (355) - SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Pours jet black, tan head. Big mushroomy, malty aroma. Nice full mouthfeel, rich. Treacle, dates and loads of umami taste. Damn Good.
