Masses of chocolate malt creates a full-bodied, palate-coating beer that is rich and smooth. Notes of chocolate, tobacco and espresso, it’s smoky, toasty and tasty!

A quite nice and easy drinkable porter. Opaque black color with a dense tan head. Lovely lacing down the sides of the glass. Mostly coffe, roasted and some chocolate. Absolutely recommendable.

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is ashy and caramelly. Some chocolate as well. The taste is mildly sweet. Finishes a touch bitter. Medium body and low carbonation.

mcberko (11172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On tap at JW Sweetman, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Nose brings out powdery dry cocoa and toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt and a touch of powdery dry cocoa. Pleasant enough, but pretty boring and unexciting. Not bad but nothing overly interesting.

Gangstergafje (416) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Looks like a stout. Pitch black and almond foam. The smell is nice. Caramel, coffee, chocolate the burnt malts. The taste is not bad. You taste the grilled/burned stout flavor, together with a savory kind of flavor. The burnt aroma remains mostly on the background. That is nice, this typical stout flavor easily gets the overhand.

Wenn man auf intensive Porter steht sicher super - aber mein Fall ist es nicht. Stark geröstete Malze sorgen für einen intensiven Kaffee Geruch und Geschmack. Wenn man’s mag...

Delicious. Almost full black with just a hint of reddish brown. Slightly fizzy, plenty of flavour, malty with a bit of coffee. Better than the Guinness I had just down the road.
