Can @ Van Moll Brewpub. I can make zero sense of the date at the bottom of the can. Black, solid big mocha head. Nose is powdery mocha, sweet chocolate, big soy sauce but complimentary, pleasant mixed with lots of sugar. Taste is herbal sweet coffee, powdery, caramel, cheap chocolate syrup, plenty of sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee, low soy sauce (complimentary), creamy very easy to drink. Lovely, smooth, really nice, drinks well. Great stuff.

adasko (2038) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Dark seal color, clear but non-transparent. Medium quality tanned head. Very pleasant aroma, full of dark notes - bitter chocolate, espresso coffee, even a bit of smoky notes. Really nice. Its definitely a bit over carbonated which make it even more drinkable, which is not the thing Im looking in porters. Its watery more than I was hopping it will be. In taste very nice roasted notes, dark coffee with tiny touch of chocolate. A bit of roasted bitterness in the end and in the afterates. Its very nice in overall but I would say its like a small porter with its taste, aroma, bitterness and abv.

Pitch black color with a mid-size foamy light brown head. Roasted malt, cacao, dryness, mild hops and dark chocolate in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, dark chocolate, dryness, mild ash and some hoppy notes. Balanced and tasty. After all its only 5%.
