yngwie (13563) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, brown body and a minimal sized light beige head. Some oxidation on the nose, with coffee and some chocolate. Smooth on the palate, medium to full body and a flavor of chocolate and coffee, quite a lot of coffee actually. A pleasant, tasteful and easy drinkable beer, especially the coffee flavor is nice. 111105

Black in colour with liquorice and coffee aromas, this smooth porter has a complex flavour with hints of dark fruits, coffee, and spice. Very enjoyable indeed.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very deep dark brown colour with a big good lasting creamy brown head. Lovely aroma of cocoa and chocolate, good roasted malt, dark fruits and some alcohol. Good thick oily mouthfeel. The flavour is soft and robust with lots of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a nice bitterness, roasted caramel, coffee, alcohol and slight liquorice. Dry roasty chocolate finish lasting quite long. That is a tasty brew indeed. Maybe another year or two could make it even more more robust round and soft a porter.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours almost black with great, red edges. Head is small ans rather bubbly - especially as the beer is poured. But it is quite sustainable. Aroma hasbuuter-scotch, caramel, chocolate and a light roastiness. Low carbonation and rather oily mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly powerful. Lots of woodiness, vanilla, chocolate and a lightly vinious. Very chewy and a stunning aftertaste. This feels like the 6 % version of BrewDogs 002 Paradox Grain :o) Great!
