UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 Solid black with a brown head, this beer looks like an impressive porter. The aroma is burnt and strong on coffee; smells sweeter than it tastes. The taste is good, a decent combination of coffee, oatmeal, and subtle caramel. The burnt malt flavor is really enjoyable. Mouthfeel is unpleasantly slick, however. A good fair-priced import porter, not the greatest but still enjoyable. Something still macro-ish about it.

Molto liquiriziosa e poco caffettosa, fresca nonostante la corpositŕ. La adoro, e non sono un amante delle scure.

HampshirePhil (203) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
500 ml bottle - Black brownish colour with creamy white fizzy frothy. Quite a weak taste for a porter but not unpleasant in anyway. Slightly too carbonated.

KeefOz (1072) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2015
Tasted 8/4/2015. BB 13.05.15. Poured an opaque black with a one-finger tan frothy head that retained OK before diminishing to a collar. Laced well. Aroma sweet with roasted grain and malt. Taste of quite sweet malt followed by coffee and hints of chocolate; has a light roasted bitterness. Medium body. Smooth, dry and semi-sweet with a moderate coffee bitterness on the finish. Nice.

Bottle, 500ml. Opaque dark brown with a frothy brown head and a ruby hue. Sweet roasted aroma with hints of dried fruits, toffee, alcohol. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Intensely sweet and moderately bitter. Strong roasted character with a heavy alcohol and roasted bitter finish. Rich and warming, very pleasant.

andrewje41 (1071) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle pour. Pours black with a lasting tan head. Decent, sweet roasted malt aroma. Flavor is a lot of the same, with a bit of a bitterness to it. A little chocolate in there as well. Interesting beer here. Nice toasty finish. Decent porter overall. A little surprised. For some reason, my expectations were low here, but it wasn’t bad. I’ll try this again.

cervmagpt (317) - PORTUGAL - APR 9, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 (style 12C). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 31.10.14 02:55 5W. AROMA: overall slight sweet roasted aroma with a vinous character. some dried plums notes. APPEARANCE: dark brown and clear with ruby highlights. tanned medium head with low retention but with lacing. TASTE: initial taste of sweet and bitter licorice that evolves into a coffee and licorice character that persists into the finish. low hop bitterness with a slight dry finish. PALATE: medium-high body with average carbonation. alcohol derived viscosity. OVERALL: a very good Porter taking in consideration that it is from a macro brewer.
