Really dark. Lots of flavor. Has a roasted malt flavor, but is also sour and tastes like alcohol. Kind of reminds me of a barley wine.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark brown body with creamy beige head. Wow, what an aroma! Ripe banana, dark chocolate, roast malt, nut, vanilla but still very fresh! The taste is even better, again this wonderful ripe banana, dark chocolate, vanilla and then comes a hop bitterness, not to agressive, just to balance the whole thing. Creamy palate, with a good carbonation and a bit astringent. Again: wow! Fantastic aromas in the nose and even more in the mouth and although it is a somehow heavy beer it so smooth to drink - or in other words: perfectly balanced! This absolutely deserves to be the highest rated beer from this great brewery, of which every brew I drank so far was very tasty.

Poured from bottle to shaker. Nice frothy head that doesn’t stick around too long. Deep dark color, if you hold it up to the light you can see red. Aroma is of freshly ground cane syrup. Sweet sugary taste with mild hop flavors in there. Lively on the tongue, medium body, abrupt finish. This is a fine example of a sweet porter.

Bottle to glass. deep black with strong tan head, almost poured it a little to heavy. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and finishes with vanilla. Good body, taste of dark malts vanilla and finishes with a slight lactose. One of my favorite everyday porters.

Pours a deep black with a small creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, some hops present. Almost like a stout but very easy to drink. I really enjoyed this brew and will definitely revisit!
