Black with a caramel colored head.
Coffee, chocolate, some hints of caramel. Begins bitter with a more sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer for a cold day.

WOW what amazing beer! Like roasted liquorice brewed into ambrosia. Such a Porter. Buy it, try it, love it.

pours black with a perfect milky brown head. Good aroma but too hoppy for a porter. flavor is a good chocolate and roast barley, I didn’t taste too much coffee. lighter palate than a porter should have due to the hops (I’m not complaining tho) hops like a stout with the creaminess of a good porter, very enjoyable

The flavor is the key here. Lots of coffee and roasted tastes. The finish is very long too, which is nice. I think the aroma is only a little above average. I also find the carbonation a bit aggressive.

Thick and viscous, with a flavorfull head. Almost oily texture. Caramelized toasty flavor, with no burnt notes.

Bottle from systembolaget. Very cool color dark, nice foam. Arome and taste are very soft, it’s really hard to feel 9.2 ABV in it. Some chocolate is there as well as little orange taste. Highly recommended.

Had with Jeff at iron abbey beer dinner on October 19. Dark and rich. No hop presence. Caramel and burnt toffee. Not much coffee to it.

Skvělé pivo! Voní po lesním ovoci, příjemně zahřeje na jazyku. I přes vysokou stupňovitost není alkohol příliš znatelný, i když samozřejmě nejde o žádné lehké pivo. Na patře zůstává lehká karamelová dochuť.

This is a very well done porter. Although, it was a bit too heavy for my tatse. It is still a very well crafted beer and fans of porters that want a heavy porter will enjoy this.

Pours a very dark black with a dark brown head. Fruity dark chocolate aroma. Smooth beer, bitter finish. Would definitely have again.
