Bottle. Dark brown body, medium tan head. Aroma has strange notes of rust and later some roast and hops too. Typical roasty/malty taste with medium hoppiness. Very average, perhaps even a bit thin. I don’t get the vanilla, maybe only in the other sense of the word.

10/5/2011 12:45:39 AM On tap at Beer Temple. Dark brown body with tall tan had. Nose of caramel and plenty of vanilla. Really nice taste of coffee, caramel and again a smooth, sweet vanilla. Quite bitter in the finish. Oily texture. A nice porter all around.

pityu (294) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle - Black colour, medium sized light brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee, cocoa, a touch of vanilla, some red berries. Taste is roasty, some chocolate, burnt sugar, some connamon, dried fruits, a bit astringent finish. Medium body and carbonation, sticky texture. Nice porter, but the roasted aroma is a bit too harsh for me.

beer-yum (990) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 5, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 Reasonably restrained aroma in a black pour. Taste is the same - reasonable. A nice brew and one I’d be happy having another of (for sure).

jamaty (1544) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Negra opaca. 3 dedos de espuma muy cremosa y duradera. Aroma escaso, ahumado y a chocolate. En boca predomina un agrio lacteo que desmerece el conjunto, que es amargo y con sabor a chocolate. Cuerpo medio y carbonatacion media alta. Final seco. De lo peor de una gran cervecera.

Dark with small head. Burnt with hints of nuts and lots of vanilla. Hoppy and freshing.
