Shall one compare thee to a fair beer, Not even this perfect porter before thou will do thee justice. Thou art more complex, brave and cunning. Thou have changed more than a brew will ever. Thou may be lil’, but thy mind is greater than words can speak and beer will ever taste.

12fl oz. Bottle. Btld 02/19/14. Pours black in color, lasting brown head. Brown sugary aroma, coffee, molasses, some burnt wood. Flavor has chocolate, muscovado sugar, roasted malt and cold coffee notes. Finish is long with strong coffee and ashy notes. Alcohol nicely hidden, only some warmthness. Starts quite light actually, but as it gets warmer, gets very oily and heavy. Slow sipper. Quite OK, but doesn’t stick out as I had hoped. Too sweet for me as well.

zeke626 (446) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, pours an opaque, dark brown body with a thin, dark brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel malts, and dark fruit/prune. Taste is similar, although with more chocolate/cocoa and coffee flavors; much more complex than the aroma. Smooth, thick, and silky on the palate. Sweet finish with a very slight lingering alcohol burn.

MarcoDL (2652) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
@ molen tasting. A real taste bomb, has sweet malt, licorice, chocolate, sweet coffee and a hint of booze. I liked it, but it was a bit unbalanced.
