Imparting a dry roasted malt character, with subtle hints of cocoa, licorice and toffee, this brew possess a balanced hop spice and malty finish.

thegreenrooster (3537) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is a pretty decent roast/coffee/chocolate. Flavor is again pretty decent. Lots of roasted malt with a heavy char after taste. This is a well done beer. Lots of roasted malt flavor that stays with you long after the first sip.

chinchill (3012) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2014
12 oz bottle poured near black with a towering, creamy light brown head. Feel: creamy and full bodied feel. Soft, medium carbonation. Rich and relatively complex, with a good suggestion of chocolate and a hint of coffee with the dark roasted malt character. Subtle hints of smoke and black licorice. O: a robust porter in style, this is also on the new label.

Bierkrug (2132) - - MAR 13, 2014
330 ml bottle fro the beer stroe in Pompano Beach FL. Pours a dark black with a dark tan head. Aroma is complex malt, coco, nuts and hops. Taste is a bit hoppy for style but good. The palate leaves a burnt metal effect but then mellows out to a stale cigar. Overall not bad but not great either in over all or by the style.
