Malty coffee and roast aromas dominate with a touch of chocolate. Transpartent black with a small fading beige head. Bitter with coffee notes. Crisp and a touch dry with medium body and a bitter finish.

Pours dark with a nice stable head. Smokey aroma. Rich malts with chocolate taste. Also hints of pine. Complex and well balanced. Very nice on a dark winter night.

Lovely malts with lovely rich smells. Big roastiness with a nice bitterness at the end. The medium carbonation is perfect for the richness and beauty of the flavours. The palate is nicely roasty with a bitter finish. Very full bodied, slick flavours. A lovely beer, maybe my favourite porter.

Seemingly bitter from the roasted malts, but the perceivable IBUs are pretty high too. Nice thick malt base, glues itís balance to your tongue. You know those beers that either help you work out problems or get someone pregnant? This is one. Thank you Flying Dog.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
dark, coffe-like appearance with minimal brownish head; aroma of coffee, roasted sugar and minimal alcohol; taste of coffee, roasted malty sweetness and some citrus; though I donít like porters, I have to admit that, itís a perfect beer. (Objectively, it should be rated as 4.6-4.7, but I really donít like this style...)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kaatuu lasiin mustana, isokuplaisella ruskealla vaahdolla. Haju on paahteinen ja siinš on joukossa suolaista salmiakkia ja pehmešš suklaisuutta. Maku on pehmešn salmiakkinen, kevyen kahvinen, yrttinen ja mausteinen. Suutuntuma on keskitšytelšinen ja humalan katkeruus tuntuu hieman, vaikka IBUja reilu 80. Kokonaisuutena hieno olut ja mukava juotava, todella tasapainoinen tapaus. Hanaversio reitattu.

Pours a dark black coffee color with a small mocha head. Nose is black licorice and malt but light. Taste is full of coffee and chocolate flavor. Not as bitter as one would think with 85 IBUs, ends on some sweet chocolate notes.

Pours black with a brown head and sweet aroma of roasted malt and licorice. Taste is sweet as well as largely burnt and roasty throughout, of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel with a dry, burnt finish. Delicious porter from Flying Dog
