berlinoise2go (626) - NORWAY - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle (33cl). Pitch black colour. Half-inch dark beige head (with a gradient towards brown), fairly good retention, settles as a thin ring. Leaves a viscous film on the glass when swirled. Sweet roasted malt aroma with chocolate, coffee, wood, hint of menthol. Full body, soft carbonation, somewhat oily mouthfeel, but does not feel very heavy. Taste is sweet, nicely balanced by a woody bitterness, and a certain acidity in the finish.

GothGargoyle (1417) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Solid black with a decent chocolate head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, charred oak, vanilla, hazelnut, coffee and a hint of booze. Velvety mouthfeel, good balance of sweet and roasty on the palate, long roasty sweet finish. Taste is chocolate, coffee cake, vanilla, fig, oak, liquorice, hint of dark soy. Delicious.

Pours a dark brown with a lite brown head. The nose is spiced fruit cake, coffee, and cocoa nibs. That pallet is really nice. It starts out with chocolate cake and dates, followed by cocoa nibs, a subtle oak and dulce de leche. It finishes with a lingering bitter sweet chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle thanks to Papsoe. Dark color with thin brown head. Body is oily and carbonation is low. Bitterness is high, sweetness is low, and there’s also some sourness over here. Aroma is high coffee, hop, resin and alcohol.

AirForceHops (3508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2013
33 cl bottle shared by Adam Jackson last night. Aroma of malt, burnt grain, charred malt and licorice. Strong roasted notes. Poured pitch black in color with a tiny dense, brown head that died quickly. Carbonation is low. Tastes just like it smells. Flavor overall is pretty sweet. Texture of this porter is on the oily side. Leaves a oily film on the tongue.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle acquired via awesome trade with KingCecil! Squid ink pour with a beautiful latte head that left lacing inside the goblet. Fragrant mocha, brownie batter, and fudge-filled nose with some light coffee and vanilla. Godiva, Hershey’s and Starbucks in flavor...rich and decadent. Creamy mouthfeel. A delicious surprise! Smart of the locals to keep this a secret so they have more for themselves!
