Jacob23_5 (128) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle. Black with almost zero head. Dry nose with hints of black coffee and spice. Again, dry is the word for the flavours, real roasty, grainy oatiness and a hint of something really unusual (lavender maybe?). Very drinkable, surprisingly unusual.

TheCametron (2127) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 15, 2012

MalcolmTucker (868) - SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours almost black with red highlights and a small beige head. Aroma of roast malt and dark chocolate. Flavour is more of the same with some bitter hops for balance. Bitter, clean finish.

Idiosynkrasie (5163) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2012
750ml bottle. Brown with large white head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate. Dark chocolate dominates the taste also, complemented by mocha coffee. On the other side harmonically hop balanced. Very nice.

mile (3513) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2012 Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty - some oat and sweetish aroma, some caramel with roasted malt and some coffee, faint licorice. Body is medium, malty - light oat and sweetish flavor, light caramel, some coffee and roasted malt, faint chocolate. Finish is average, malty - light oat and lightly sweetish, coffee and some roasted malt, faint licorice. Lightly roasted sweetish porter with coffee - not too much oat in the aroma/flavor.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2011
Pours very dark brown with a rather big head. Dominating burnt coffee aroma. Very carbonated body, which isn’t a fan favourite here. Slightly watery mouthfeel but otherwise a robust taste of caramel and coffee. Not very sweet. Decent, but share the bottle with a friend. You’ll tire of it before you get all 75cl down.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2011
33cl bottle from DeMolen biershop. Brune, col épais moka. Arôme malt grillé, chocolaté avec flocons avoine et très bon houblon et aspect citronné et frleuri très agréable. En bouche, me rappelle quasi une Black IPA, côté malt chocolaté avec en retrait des notes de chocolat au lait, moka et petite pointe grillé expresso. Cela est accompagné d’un très beau profile houblonné moyennement amer et citronné. Vraiment légère avec un profile malt bien en avant le tout finissant sur cette pointe d’amertume houblonnée. Un régal. Carbonation est active la bière bien pétillante avec l’avoine qui donne cet aspect de grains et une belle rondeur en bouche.

laiti (7704) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
75 cl bottle @ home. 5,2% version, bottled on 31.05.2011, BBE 31.05.2016
Lots and lots of foam when pouring, has happened also before with light beers from DM. Aroma has some roastiness, cocoa, nuts and gooseberry bush. Dry flavour has some coffee, milk chocolate and roastiness. Harsh hops come a bit too much through. Too much CO2 on slightly thin palate. Decent.

lusikka (7595) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 31.5.2011.
Pours a dark brown colour with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma of gooseberries, coffee, nuts and roasted malts. Flavour of roasted malts, nuts, gooseberries, chocolate, raisins and some smoke notes. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a bitter, chocolate-like, dry finish. Carbonation is way too high. Good dry porter.

olio (8067) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2011

Pours dark hazy copper colour with large foamy head. Aroma of light coffee, ashy chocolate, grass, nuts, some nettle notes and slightly toasted malts. Flavour of coffee, nuts, malts, coffee, some vegetables and herbal notes. A bit too thin-bodied and watery palate. Lots of CO2, bitter palate with a very dry finish.
