Opaque dark purple with excellent caramel-coloured head. Nose milk chocolate and burnt malt, Taste medium bitter, light sweet. Creamy texture. The finish is quite short and the sweetness makes it too cloying.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Color marrón intenso casi negro, abundante cabeza de espuma beige que perdura; en nariz aromas a maltas tostadas, chocolate y café; en boca entrada suave con amargor equilibrado, agradable y largo pos gusto un tanto maltoso. Buen cuerpo con carbónico medio, buen ejemplo de una excelente porter, buen equilibrio entre el dulce de la malta y el amargor del lúpulo.

Based on the raving reviews I expected more. That said, it is a good porter. Love the texture and the fact it is not sweet. Flavor is subtle but a bit weak. Mostly coffee with some interesting elements coming through: a faint smokyness, bitter hops, caramel and licorice. There is some nice sourness and a long dry bitter finish.

Insane! Never tasted a porter like it although always stuck to British ones so far. Appearance: endless black abyss topped with a delightful copper foam. Smells like heaven. Cola, spices, chocolate, caramel and a really dark top quality single estate espresso brewed to perfection. Taste is first sweet then sour with a roasted malt flavour that lingers deliciously at the back of the nose. Must try more American porters.

Coffee, coffee as the description says. But nothing much more than that. Starts of bitter with a light finish. Not a full bodied beer for sure. Always leaves you wanting another swig but never gets you there.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance:Dark brown color (allmoste black) with a nice one finger white foamy head, leaving a nice amount of lacing.
Aroma: Dark roasted malts, a hint of caramelised malts, some coffee, chocolate, and a hint of red fruits.
Taste: PLums up front before the roasted malts come in adding some cofee and some chocolate in the finish. Sweet with a hint of bitterness.
Slick rich mouthfeel, above average body,slightly below medium carbonation,
Classic Prime example of the style, Probably the first Porter I have ever had, and still the reference to me to any other Porter. In addition this seems to be quite good available worldwide. So No excuses to not get this.

Nice taste of Caramel and chocolade. Not to much alcohol and that makes it easy drinking. One of my favorite porter
