Greavsie (8) - - JUN 6, 2013
The colour of black coffee (so more sort of dark brown than black), nice malty nose and the flavour of a really good chocolate malt milkshake. Very drinkable indeed.

SimonTja (221) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2014
Super lightly roasted, feels like a black lager pretty much, some amber malt, no hop presence, not a lot of flavour, but very drinkable I guess.

Hansen (6444) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Heavy spicy aroma, thyme? Lightly roasted too. It makes it a bit unharmonic. Flavor is more spicy, herbs and laqurice. Creamy, watery texture.

Ryanmalkmus (17) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2014
Great example of a porter, big smooth mouthfeel and complex dark roasted character including chocolate and roasted nuts. Had one on tap recently with a distinctly vinegary finish so assume the keg was old. From the bottle it's fine, not a hint of the sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
