Garlic_of_Doom (354) - SWEDEN - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours almost black with a small dense beige head. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, fresh coffee and raisins in aroma. Dark chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee, well balanced bitterness. Dry mouth feel, medium body, medium carbonation. Dry bitter coffee after taste.
Solid porter! This is how I like them. Like Black Butte but a bit thicker.

Getting some chocolate and bitterness. Nice rich dark colour. Great beer to sit on through a movie. Probably wouldn’t have more than one.

HopDagger (1) - Bloomfield Hills, USA - APR 12, 2014 does not count
I awoke to the sound of thunder. Total darkness. Blackness surrounded me. Against my better judgment I was drawn to the outside. Oak trees towered over the smokey campfire, now damp from the rain. As the water washed over me I thought of my father, when he smoked a pipe when I was young. Pitch black. Morning may never come...

SlovakSniper (2807) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Une robe qui fait le style. Une tête petite et un début de dentelle. Un nez de café, de noisettes grillées et de caramel foncé. Efficace représentation olfactive. Sur les papilles, des malts chocolatés et légèrement brûlés. De la vanille grillée et du caramel croquant. En bouche, un corps bien crémeux. Des bulles parfaites. En finale, une sécheresse provoquée par une juste torréfaction. Ce porter est très efficace. Magnifique sur la langue. Créateur d’endorphines. J’aime.

Dark black/brown pour, laces the bottle well. A lot of bitter coffee in the smell. A bit too bitter. Flavor is dark chocolate and roasted coffee but a bit sweet as well. A bit of carbonation but not too much. The bitterness overpowers. I guess I am not a big fan of bitter porters.

Emeister84 (752) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Roasty aromas, dark coffee, bitter chocolate, some molasses, some minerality. Very dark, basically black, with a lasting ring of off-white head foam. Dry, roasty malts well accompanied by hop bitterness. Medium bodied, very smooth.
