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.

Fritz123 (1227) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Draft at Sybarite Pig. Snifter. Very dark, opaque pour. Thick brown mocha head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts, nuts. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, roasted peanuts, roasted malts, and dark fruits. Mouth is smooth with a thick lactose. Bitter finish. very well done.

CraftBeerNick (1097) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Draft at Munich Tap House, 23rd March 15. This smells ok, a little boozy, however the taste is rough, overly sweet, sickly medicinal mess. Not much character to it and overtly strong ABV. Over rated, and a poor example of a porter

callmemickey (3241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Dark brown-black body, medium to thin tan head, sparse lacing. Dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, a little licorice, light roast, and a shit ton of syrupy booze. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation, thick finish, sweet throughout.

DocJitsu (1123) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours an extraordinarily dark brown with a short mochaccino froth colored head. Chocolate, fruit, and faint coffee aromas. Nothing "imperial" about the nose. Viscous and chewy. Metallic at the beginning. Man, I hope that fades as it warms. Fruit dominates, Cadbury chocolate, and faint coffee. Fruit expresses more at the very front and again at the finish.

Changed (369) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Dated about a year ago. Pours black. Just black. Small tan head, no lacing. Aroma is like a barleywine; also, banana and plenty of roasted malt. Flavor... wow. The flavor! It has everything. Roasted malt, banana, toffee, chocolate, slight sour funk, ash can, red berries. Body is substantial, mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is fine and sharp. This is undoubtably the best dark beer I’ve had as of 3/19/2015, and maybe the best beer, too.

Borup (6730) - Albertslund, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
From tap. Black with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, bread, sweetness, dried fruit, cocao and alcohol.

330ml, 11.5%, bottled Oct 2013. Black, small foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate, red berry, raspberry. Body is medium, slightly foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is soft toffee malts, tangy berry, sweet seaweed, bacon, ashy. Tasty and interesting.

Bif (1595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a thick tan head that lasts. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and bit of nut. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit with nuts. Good bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy, robust character with very little hint of the 11.5% ABV. Very enjoyable beer.

Pours with a thick caramel coloured head. Fruity molasses aroma. This beer has incredible depth & flavour - like a liquid chocolate fondant with a thick, caramel finish. Rated by BrewTom
