COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled:
Pours black with a thick head. Aroma is lots of sweet licorice, some smoked meat and a touch of Parmesan cheese(!). Smooth mouth feel. The taste is all about sweet licorice leading to a warming alcohol finish.

bedzinianin06 (294) - - OCT 24, 2015
Pite na Beer Geek Pumpkin we Wrocławiu. Aromat mega. Intensywny. Czuć łychę, generalnie słodki. Poza tym czekolada. Dominuje czerwona pomarańcza, albo inaczej - dojrzałe jabłko, czerwone. Gęsta brązowa piana. Obfita, dosyć trwała. Barwa piwa - czarna. W smaku MA-SA-KRA. Mega czekolada z orzechami. Pralinki, grejpfrut, kawa. Delikatnie grzejący alkohol, ale zdecydowanie nie czuć voltarzu tego piwa. Średnio-wysokie nagazowanie. Piwo pełne, oleiste. Mega gładkie. Goryczka średnia, obecna gdzieś w tle. Piwo super, świetnie ułożone.

nuplastikk (5367) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Thick mollasses opaque black body. Rusty beige head, steadily lines the glass. Rather worthless deScription doesn’t help to know what it going on in this beer. One...it tastes a little suspiciously extract boosted to me. Two...what do you mean changed? Was this licorice barrel aged or something? Really does maintain some semblance of porterhood, even if it is a big oily sweet sugary mess of a beer. Raisin, licorice, brown chocolate, syrup. Not that bad, but I probably wouldn’t buy this again..screams unauthentic. Very little subtlety or grace, surprisingly little malt depth.

yourilevesque (896) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bière noire comme la nuit au-dessus de laquelle flotte une mince couche de mousse, épaisse lors du service mais rapidement fondue. Les arômes évoluent fortement au fil des Celsius qui augmentent. Plus froide, la bière était beaucoup sur la pacanne au beurre et la croustade aux pommes. Au fil des Celsius, beaucoup d’alcool, de la mélasse, des pruneaux séchés et un gâteau au fruits qui me rappelle vaguement du Grand Marnier. Nez évolutif très intéressant! En bouche le liquide est assez mince et donc très facile à boire. L’alcool devient beaucoup plus subtile mais je suis toujours dans ces notes de mélasse mais cette fois avec un léger goût de vanille qui me rappelle un alcool chaud américain. Moyennement longue, cette bière se boit parfaitement en accompagnement d’un baklava aux amandes.
