A richly malty ale, with clear characteristics of dark chocolate and black malt, and hints of black licorice, ale fruitiness, and molasses in the finish.

Pours a dark reddish brown with no head. Aroma is dark chocolate and malt. Taste is so clean and notes of chocolate and malt. This has a nice clean finish with no bitterness.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste dark chocolate, fruit, roasted malt. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty mediocre porter. Itís nice... Just boring. Shine toasty notes throughout with hints of coffee and chocolate. Thatís about it.

355 ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown, thin beige head. Aromas of dark chocolate, nuts. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate. Light roasty bitterness at the end. Quite thin body for a 7%er too. OK.

This is a fairly complex porter, that disguises each note until the beer warms up. Chocolate malts and brown sugar/molasses forward. Dark fruit and anise notes come out in the back end. Think of a dried fruit covered in bakerís chocolate. Thin in body yet creamy in mouthfeel - toes the line between porter and stout quite well. The 7% is not overly noticeable here.

One of the best porters around. Great roasted, malty character with hints of dark chocolate and coffee.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin, just barely covering the top as a light brown glow. Aroma of raisins, figs, earth, caramel, nuts and a good deal of vanilla. Medium-bodied; Very rich nutty flavour with a subdued molasses and caramelised sugar flavour and some more flavourful prunes, raisins and even chocolate flavours finishing off the flavours. Aftertaste is nice with a light grain and malt flavour, some raisin and fig sweetness and a good light oak and vanilla dryness at the end. Overall, a nice porter - no strings attached, good for the style and in general as an all-around beer. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington a bit more than a year later on 23-August-2014.
