Dark in color on pour with a brownish head. There was a nice chocolate and smoke flavor to this beer. Not as sweet as most porters, and closers to a stout beer.

This poured a medium to darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of chocolate and light roast, fairly muted though. Flavor more chocolate forward, very creamy, almost milky. Another tasty DH beer.

Sexy black dress pour, gives good head, lots of lace- your a perv. Blueberry chocolate aroma, light smoke cherrywood. Caramel, nut, real nice. Same in taste. Very smooth creamy, almost not a porter but more a stout, real nice. Some earthy, slight citrus pine. Me like.

Voodoo (555) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2015
A 10 minute pour......the head blew up an inch over the top of the glass and didn’t allow the rest of the bottle to be poured in for 8 minutes, then foamed again as the last 2 ounces were put in. Disappointing. Aroma is washed out but hints of coffee, little else.....taste is quite good, coffee, unsweetened chocolate, nicely bittered, but obviously overcarbed. Pity.

SinH4 (2528) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2015
Black-brown color with small beige head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Taste is surprisingly light, but still very rich, sweet chocolate, a hint of spices, spicy finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Light and full at the same time. A very good Porter!
