FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Blind tasting with Tranquility. 500ml bottle. Tight creamy and dark head, stays for ever. Aroma chocolatey. (On another bottle, I got gravy - meat and yeast.) Tastes like a hefty stout, some alcohol due to the 7%, full maltiness, not oppressingly burnt. As it gets warmer, there will be even bacon in the taste! Well rounded, make this the last 2 beers of the evening...

imdownthepub (13226) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from the East European Supermarket, High St. Banbury. Black with off white short lived head. Initial flavour of dry caramel, burnt, liquorice but quite sweet at the same time. A little chocolate, maltiness, the carbonation is fairly heavy. Reasonable but not mind blowing.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
A deep dark porter with a thick compact dark brown head, beautiful. In aroma, sweet fruity molasses, with light maple and maderization, very nice. In mouth, a nice smooth sweet porter with maple butter and dark fruits, veering on bock territory, surprising.
