0.5L bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Aromas are fairly mild: bread, cereal grain and chocolat.e. Flavor is fairly sweet, with lots of chocolate and some roasted malt coming through. Finishes with some roasted malt bitterness, but sweetness remains. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice malt character, but fairly unidimensional flavorwise.

Nice - a bit like an imperial stout-lite - some of the same burnt toffee, raisin, and warming alcohol characteristics. A little thin bodied though, and the head pretty much just vanished. Not a bad effort at all, I’d drink this again.

Chocolate sweet aroma, pours black with a bubbly off-white head. Very heavy in sweetness, balanced by a bit of hop bitterness. Very clean, leaves a touch of hops and burnt malt in the finish. Overall it is good, very nice with the strong sweetness powering through.

Decent coffee like aroma with a nice head that doesnít go anywhere, taste isnt bad but there is a metallic like note, and that helps this go down smooth, a tasty different porter.

In tallahassee you can buy this stuff extremly cheap so i never thought much of it. finally i decided to give it a try and found it a nice surprise. defiantly the best alcohol at its prive tier. anyway warm malt some roast produces a sweet thick taste on the tongue. some chocolate, does well to make this beer taste non alcoholic.

MRMedellin (245) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - AUG 18, 2013
I tried at a Russian restaurant in Bogota, when itís poured in the glass whe can see a dark brown beer with a non persistent brown creamy foam head. The taste is quite good being evident the roasted malt flavor. The end is a little bit dry. As some porters canít be enjoyed if the weather starts to be hot so itís better if itís served cold.

16.9 oz. bottle at Russia House is DC. Nothing too memorable about this one. Your average porter. Light malty flavor with no real development of flavors.

Smells malty, sweet, toffee, bit of cocoa powder, molasses. Taste is sweet caramel, roasted, metallic, bit of fruitiness (reminds me of nectarines for some reason). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness. I like that sweetness, but wish it had a bit more roastiness to it. Nice beer

Pours a jet black with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and chocolate, a little yeasty. The flavor is roasty, with dark chocolate and enough bitterness. Their is kind of a sticky feeling that I didnít like too much, I wish it were a bit cleaner. Itís a decent porter, and not too expensive.
