Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aromas are earthy with coal and rich coffee. Nutty with cola and peppery alcohol. Oily with dark toffee and blackberries. Floral with tobacco and dark cherries. Dark chocolate with toffee and medicinal notes. Flavours are sweet toffee and bittersweet dark chocolate with berries and cherry cola. Rich coffee with peppery alcohol and an oily palate. Some hints of smoky meatiness with earthy soy. Spicy on the finish. Excellent.

fredfa (42) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - FEB 7, 2015
Negra igual café. Melhor porter que já tomei. Dulçor prevalecendo sobre amargor. Alcool bem inserido. Só se sente quando levanta da cadeira. Recomendada.

Agreed it’s a porter with the punch of a barley wine. A strong dry malt with dried fruits, chocolate and coffee in a dark, oily flow of alcoholic warmth.

tasurinchi (19) - ROMANIA - FEB 5, 2015
Dark with medium head. Olives and alcohol on the nose. Coffee, roasted apples and nice lingering alcohol in the end. Medium sweetness with a very nicely balanced biterness in the after taste. The body is spectacular, you almost feel like drinking oil. Absolutely amazing beer!

DrAlexandre (19) - Niteroi, BRAZIL, BRAZIL - FEB 2, 2015
Coloração negra opaca (SRM30). Espuma marrom clara, perene, com microbolhas de permeio, de alta formação e longa duração, deixando belos laços permanentes nas laterais do copo. (ap5/5). Aroma é uma belo mix de milk shake de chocolate ao leite, com chocolate amargo, maltes torrados, frutas escuras (uva, ameixa, nozes, avelã), notas de frutas vermelhas ao fundo, bem sutis. Sabor inicialmente amargo e torrado, logo amaciado pelo dulçor e cremosidade do chocolate ao leite e pelo frutado das frutas escuras. Sendo que esse dulçor é muito suave, nada enjoativo. Seus 11,5% passam totalmente desapercebido, neste conjunto. Realmente, só me dei conta que tinha esse teor alcoólico, quando fui anotar no untappd. Final bem carregado no malte. Retrogosto torrado e achocolatado. Textura cremosa-licorosa. Carbonatação média/baixa e corpo médio/alto. Um exemplar magnifico, com alta drinkability. Excelente presente. Caiu para mim como uma luva, perfeita para mim.

umestre (11) - - JAN 29, 2015
One of my favorite beers with complex aroma with cereal coffe. Appearece like petroleum with minimal dark brown. heavy sour and a full body very oily texture flat carbonation and a long finish like a good cigarret

fkoolen (486) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Pitch black colour, nicely stable brown creamy head. Interesting nose and taste with sweet roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, molasses, caramel, dried fruits (raisins, dades, figs, plums), aromatic hops and sweet red portowine tones too. Big alcoholic warmth when entering the lingering long finish. Medium carbonation, full body with big flavours, soft mouthfeel. Barley wine meets porter.
