COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

olio (7426) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2015
65 cl bottle. Bottled on 21.11.2014.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a medium sized off-white head. Moderately fruity aroma, some hops, caramel and some dark malts too. Slightly sourish taste, ripe fruit notes, some caramel malts and cocoa. This doesn’t feel to be at a mint condition, slightly sour. A disappointment.

65 cl bottle @ olio, bottled 21.11.2014
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hay and cocoa. Flavour has salty licorice, hay, some coffee and slight milky acidicness. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Decent but nothing special, the lactic tones disturb me a bit.

chinchill (2903) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at The Brass Tap (Tampa). Opaque and essentially black in the glass. Excellent, sticky lacing. Flavor is about mid-way between Amer. Porter (with extra hops) and Baltic Porter. Black coffee in the finish and aftertaste, with a touch of smoke. Mildly bitter, increasing into the aftertaste. O: a fine porter.

bottle. smells of light roast and a bit of caramel. tastes of bakers chocolate, giving way to caramel. coffee hints in the finish with a nice chalky mouthfeel that just feels right lingering with the flavors. although i am a big fan of sweet chocolate outsidie of a glass of beer, i prefer what is going on here when discussing what’s in my glass. that not very sweet chocolate really compliments the other flavors. the caramel comes out with stronger coffee notes as it warms too. just what i was hoping for.

Pours a jet black with almost no head. Taste is fizzier than I would have expected and a touch off putting. The flavor is smooth and balance. Nice tobacco and boot leather body.

Can brought back from Florida by my girlfriend. Poured from the 12oz can with a very dark brown body and a small tan head. Aroma was some chocolate notes, some sweet bittersweet notes, some burnt character. An interesting flavor, not sure if I dug it as much as I was hoping.
