The head is brown and robust, the body is black. It smells sweet, chocolate, a bit roasty, creamy. The taste is sweet, a bit roasted toasty, but more darkmalty-strange, a bit chocolate. In the aftertaste a bit roastmalty, bitter. I most like the aftertaste. Drinkable. 13/11/10/10/13/10

mcberko (8409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out light toasted malt, coconut flakes and some cocoa. Flavour is dry and balanced, with toasted malt and maybe a tiny hint of coconut. Well-balanced and robust. Well-made and enjoyable.

unclemike (2444) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2015
sample at big texas beerfest Pours almost pitch black, with a light brown head. Heavily toasted aroma, malt, coffee beans, fudge, vanilla, smoke, nuts, hops. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. The taste is full of roasted malt, coffee beans and chocolate, quite smokey, ashes, butterscotch, hops. Nice.

Foffern (1383) - Bodř, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
Bottle at home. The color is deep brown to black with a compact, greyish beige head. Roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, rye bread and hint of smoke. A little light though. More roasted malt in the flavor with more coffee beans, leather, burned wood and very dark chocolate. Some sweetness in the background. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-roasted, coffee porter. Easy to drink.
