Hanuta06 (321) - Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderate, chocolate/coffee aroma. Appearance: very small, light-brown, initial head that instantly disappeared. No lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark, reddish-brown body. Taste: light chocolate/coffee initial flavor and lightly acidic and roasty finish with long duration. Palate: medium bodied with dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall: this is an outstanding porter. Great aroma with a flavor to match. I’d like to try it from the tap.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear reddish brown with a dissipating light brown head. Some vanilla and coffee in the nose. Medium body, dryish, chocolate accents and again quite some coffee - but never heavily roasted or burned. But quite pleasant and easygoing - if somewhat light. 160513

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled sample. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Smells like a mocha milkshake with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavours are of medium roast coffee, olive, toasted malt, and toasted nuts. A touch thin on the palate, with some coffee bitterness. Solid overall.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate to large frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Not getting a terribly strong coffee nose.   Comes across as more of a musty cocoa, and even a bit of earthiness.   Its like it reminds me of coffee beans before they are roasted.   Moderate and semi-sweet roastiness up front, but unfortunately to me its like watered down coffee.   Decent malt base, a bit creamy, cream and sugar, but missing the core roastiness.   I had the Bridgeport Negro Porter right before this and thought it was much more coffee oriented.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Light finish, again with some watered down coffee.   I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but this seemed like a regular old porter to me, with a bit of coffee.   Hops were on the low side.   Meh...
