Taster at Beer for Geeks. It is an inky black pour and has a deep roasty plum chocolate aroma. Medium bodied, the taste is molasses, maple and chocolate syrup. Not so complex and maybe a bit too sweet but well done.

On tap at WFDP ’2015. Black beer with almost brown head. Complex aromas of chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, dried plums etc. Very sweet, like chocolate liqueur. Smooth, creamy, full bodied beer. Very interesting, although a bit too sweet for me.

Negra, espuma marrom abundante, de longa duração, linda! Aroma de café, chocolate amargo, alcoólica, torradas, adocicada, couro. Paladar de dulçor médio, alcoólica, amargor discreto que intensifica no aftertaste. Corpo médio. Aftertaste intenso de café e álcool, toffe, doce de leite, chega a lembrar sabor defumado. Cerveja complexa e deliciosa!

Tallahassee, Fl - Quick Save - 12 oz bottle. Deep dark brownish-black pour, light, mocha colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Prune-like fruitiness, a touch of chocolate, some dates and raisins in the aroma. Flavor is decadent with some chocolate goodness, some date-like fruity notes, some strong liqueur notes - cognac comes to mind. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent night cap.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Almost black dark brown color that eliminates all light that bombards the brew. Mild aroma of molasses, alcohol, sugar, and chocolate. Really complex and well balanced flavor that entices the palate. Incredibly smooth and thick with a creamy mouthfeel that was fantastic. Overall, a sweet porter that was truly a treat.
