Aroma piuttosto intenso, decismaente maltato, tostato, ricorda la frutta secca, nocciole e noci brasiliane.

Gusto abboccato, maltato, tostato deciso, dal cacao amaro alla nocciola. amaro luppolato il finale. leggermente acidula. Corposa, quasi oleosa, carbonatazione debole, poco calda, piena. equilibrata ed armonica

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle BBE: 16 Mar 16. Cellar temp. (+2hr@RT). Pours near black with a hint of red/brown, with a large, tight, creamy tan head. ’Green’ nose; mossy and herbal with a little cheese & onion. Below that, rich toffee and burnt toast aromas. A moderate coffee bitterness is underpinned by a light caramel sweetness on the tongue. The body is medium, the texture slick, carbonation medium-low and the finish toasty and slightly astringent. Overall an enjoyable porter, a bit hoppier than typical for style.

chinchill (3356) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a bottle in Edinburgh. Dark Brown; opaque; frothy head. Odd petroleum-type aromatic ruins the nose. The flavor is much better but still has an unusual, hard to describe, off taste that seems akin to burnt grain. Medium carbonation and body.
