jookos (1529) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle. Black. Loads of dry burnt rubbery salty licorice on nose. Body is full, salty roasty goodness. A bit oily, but bitter. Doesn’t pretend to be soft, easy, but rather agressive, handing out punches in all directions.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 1, 2013
Bottled 0,33L - . Dark brown color, much deep and impenetrable, nice and foamy nut head of long resistance. Very braced and alcoholic aroma; notes of roast caramel, smoked cereals and wood. Powerfull and solid body, medium crisp with a decided and round body with notes of roast caramel, ash, scorched wood. Long final but a lot unbalanced for my taste.

RichardW (1376) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Pours a medium oily jet black with little to no head. Whisky notes, bitter roast flavours, rich coffee and cocoa in there too. The finish is long and moreish, with just a touch of warmth late on. A great porter, too drinkable for the ABV.....

andyhwcinc (1351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Purchased at La Cave a la Bulles in Paris, FR; enjoyed at home on a cool spring Saturday while watching baseball. Appearance is a dark black with a thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of roasted, bitter chocolate malt, I’m also getting a very faint mint aroma, maybe a little bit of coffee, smell is very nice. Taste is lightly bitter and goes down dry with roasted chocolate malt notes, not much carbonation. Pretty good stuff!
