Tap@Taphouse, Copenhagen - black pour with tan head. Medium roasted and sweet malty aroma and taste, prominent milky chocolate, caramel, light vanilla nuances, not bad.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy dark brown color with a copper hue. Nice light brown head but weak retention.
Perfectly balanced aromas and flavors of toasty coffee and chocolate with a fruity sensation, like apples. A really fresh and tender taste with notes of toffee.
Rich and creamy, super smoky and almost chalky. Dense body with slight carbonation. The only drawback: the finish is too short...I want more!
Overall this is a wonderful beer, super flavorful with great balance in all aspects.

In der Nase leicht Kaffee, etwas schokoladig. Im Trunk cremig, leicht süß, dann plötzlich Kaffee. Toller, plötzlicher Abgang. Sehr rund, gute Drinkability.

Deep brown with a shortlived fizzy tan head. Light, and easy drinking, yet roasty... flavours of coffee, milk chocolate, liquorice, dried fruit. Lovely and refreshing porter. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown color with some gorgeous ruby notes. Medium carbonation. Dark fruitiness, raisins, milk chocolate, and coffee aromas. Quite dry and bitter with a nice toasted malt flavor. Notes of milk chocolate on the tongue. Full of flavor, but not too heavy. When I think of porter, this beer is what comes to mind. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark ruby color, crystal clear. Small tan head, quickly disappearing, leaving ring on glass. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, quite weak aroma. Palate more on thin side, carbonation medium. Taste sourish, non on malty side. Fruity start - black currant with red wine like barrell finish. Aftertaste roasty and rich but at the same time decent and not overpowering.
Good one, balanced and not too strong to scare broad audience.
