12 oz bottle: Dark brown color with a tan head. Dark chocolate powder aroma. Roasted hazelnut, lightly burnt caramel flavor. Pretty light body and a crisp carbonation, a little too crisp and light. Decent.

Drinking 355ml bottle on Kvittfjell in Norway. Dark almost black color with a light brown foam. Seems to be a bit of a metallic smell to it, but I find a lot of chocolate and nutty aromas as well. The roasted notes in the taste are pleasant and you got a very long aftertaste with a smooth bitterness. I also taste some cherry and dried fruits. I could imagine this beer will only improve if stored for a longer period of time.

Ink black with a frothy 2-finger head that dissipated slowly and left modest lace. Roasted coffee is strongest in the aroma, along with dark fruits like plums and raisins. Taste followed the smell, with the fruits coming in stronger than they were on the nose, with a slight hops bitterness that materializes late. Gentle smokiness throughout. Moderate carbonation, medium body and a pleasant warming alcohol presence.

Quarter of a litre at Celle Bierfest. Almost jet black, opaque, extreme tanned head.Lots of lacing, clung to the glass. S: More hops than other porters but not overly pronounced, gave way to a some fruits. T: High on sweetness and molasses, dwarfed the dark chocolate and espresso, finished like a Belgian dubbel. M: Thick texture, really smooth, silk in a glass. O: Good desert beer, really slid down well.
