Not my favorite. Othersd enjoyed it. Dark amber pour. Pleasant aroma of caramel. Taste is sweet and overly bitter astringent.

DialSquare (2498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Amber Brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is candy brown sugar, cocoa, bread. Tastes are same with toffee, floral, mineral. Liked it better than that description would indicate. Everything is in its place and not too sweet - which is my bogey.

PorterPounder (5341) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - 11.2 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white pour with a fair bit of lacing. Aroma has some toffee accents, some molasses, a hint of caramel. Flavor is full bodied and bold with some caramel. some hints of chocolate, a touch of molasses, and a back end of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Nice belly-warmer - even though it is early summer!

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Pours dark auburn like cherry cola. Very little head. Sweet fruitcake and brandy aroma. Very ordinary feel but an alcoholic kick and tang after the sweet orange peel and grapefruit taste. Tasty but a bit plain for a doppelbock.
