Thick mouthfeel, rich and complex flavours. Chocolately, roasty and smoky without being cloying. Tastes much bigger than its ABV would suggest. Great example of a craft porter.

JorisPPattyn (8017) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Towering rust/tan head, utterly stable and leaving lacerings over virtually black beer with some redbrown highlights. Roasted, burnt, sweet to burnt/bitter caramel. Lightly sweet, mainly roasted flavour. Lots of malts, more than this ABV would warrant. Retronasal coffee, which is strangely absent in the nose. Hints at charcoal, even. Feels better bodied than it probably is. Well-carbonated, slick to viscous feel. Not bad, just not outstanding enough.

Bottle at home from ales by mail
fruity red berry toasty, dry. Lively carbonation, dry bitter coffee, burnt toast dry finish. Starts fairly well but finishes too roasty.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. A clear looking dark brown beer with a light tan head of moderate size. The aroma has lots of dark chocolate and coffee, itís almost mocha-ish, with some nougat and caramel. Itís medium bodied and soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, caramel and a solid dose of coffee and dark chocolate in the flavor, with a good bitterness chiming in. Lasting roasted finish with chocolate and coffee. A bit roasted, almost burnt this one, but at least itís tasteful. 140927
