solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Smells like moccha and chocolate, pours black and coffee like in consistence. Has a little bitter and a medium palate. This beer is a little underwhelming for me, hoped for a better beer here. Still pretty good,, just not excellent. Bottle at The Rhino.

sfuen03 (333) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 12, 2013
33 cl. Classic porter appearance with reddish tones. Creamy, big, very compact head. Small bubble, very good lacing. Aroma is very strong, red fruits, licorice, grapes, plum, resin, coffee. Palate is light, refreshing. Long bitter finish. taste is surprisngly salty; average bitterness, coffee, vanilla and licorice notes. Maybe lacks balance.

fantti (705) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin mustana muhkealla, likaisen valkoisella ja pilvisellä vaahdolla. Haju on paahteinen, yrttinen, ruisleipäinen, kahvinen ja hieman lakritsinen. Maku on paahteinen, lakritsinen, hieman tuhkainen ja multainen. Jälkimaku on vahvan kahvinen. Suutuntuma on alkuun hyvin hiilihappoinen, jonka jälkeen se tasaantuu ja on lopulta hyvin tasapainossa. Kokonaisuutena tämä on ihan ok portteri, jossa haju ja maku ovat mukavia, suutuntuma taas ei niin mukava.

Bottle. Pours a black beer with a nice tanned head. Aroma of licorice, vanilla and light roast. Flavor is quite sweet, very malty and balanced. Very decent brew, nice porter.

Grima (2098) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours deep black with very high, off-white creamy head. Smells malty with some bitter roasted coffee and some chocolate. Starts with pleasant roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some smokiness. The middle part has much more burnt malts and bitter coffee. Goes into a smooth malty finish with some chocolate and burnt toffee notes.
