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.

Panzerfaust (614) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUL 26, 2015
330 ml bottle from Club de Cervezas, Chile. Pours a pitch black color and, after a vigorous pour, just a small light brown head and a medium lacing. Aroma is densely malty with loads of chocolate, dark fruits, prunes, dates, licorice, Port Wine and burnt sugars. Intense stuff. Taste is sweet with some umami touches. Strong burnt sugars and chocolate can be felt throughout the whole mouthfeel without the slightest roasty bitterness or astringency. Maybe slightly too sweet for my taste. Bold and a little bit boozy, very warming. Oily texture, low carbonation. This is heavy stuff. A nice Imperial Porter, good sipper. The 330 ml bottle might be excessive for some.

zach8270 (3863) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2015
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with no head. Shockingly mild aroma but hints of dark fruits and coffee. Flavor is very dark as well. Lots of bitter burnt malts and coffee. Good alcohol punch.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks Tom L. 2014 bottle, 9.8%. Black with a bit of light brown foam. Aroma of chocolate, cherries, plums, some alcohol. Sweet flavor with chocolate, dark fruits (lots of plums), a sourish note, and a bit of alcohol. Full-bodied. Really good.

Beachmaster (239) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle into a tulip. Pours black, with a moderate brown head. Minimal lacing. Nose is dark roast malt, coffee, and dark fruit. Taste is complex, with notes of chocolate, coffee, and dark roast malt. Very creamy mouth feel, and a long, smooth finish. Outstanding.

mateuszk (827) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Draught. Pours pitch black, white small head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, dark chcolate, cofee, dried, fruits and unfortunately strong aldehyde which completely ruins greatness of the rest aroma. In taste sweet, quite roasty with dark chocolate. Dried fruits flavours. Here aldehyde is not so strong, yet still noticable. Full bodied, sweet finished with medium bitterness. Alcohol well hidden.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Looks fine, dark with the tan head but this beer is just so sweet that I did not enjoy it at all. The sweetness actually even let the alcohol become present. I did not enjoy this
