Clear mahogany red color glowing in the glass with a frothy tan head that left good lace. Nose of tea, coffee and chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Lots of dusty bitter chocolate in the taste, with vanilla, licorice and an almost smokey nuttiness. Smokey bitter hop finish. Much better warm.

Pours black with small head. Very strong roasted malt aroma. Sweet chocolate, roasted coffee flavor. Very small amount of bitterness, just enough to balance. Very full body. Excellent mouthfeel, creamy. Dry finish. Vey nice beer. The best porter I have had.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 I was planning to drink the Dolle Dulle Teve 10 as my 600th rating, but suddenly this one came up. Clear dark brown coloured. Complex aroma and flavour, malts, coffee, cocoa, bit smokey. Complex and nevertheless very smooth and easy-to-drink. Very nice brew.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Color is cola with ruby tint; massive beige head, rocky and long-lasting, with sticky sea-foam traces left in its wake...Wonderful, slightly winey aroma full of sweet and roasted goodness, with hints of chocolate and assorted other goodies...The flavor is a fine mixture of ingredients: coffee, chocolate, a slight nuttiness, and fruit flavors as well (dates come to mind). Roasty bitterness comes through in the finish, with a light lingering dryness...Body is moderately full, and the layering of flavors really stimulates the palate while delivering this rich bounty with an elegant smoothness...This is extremely satisfying---one of the best from this outstanding brewery.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2003
UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 The dominant aroma is of roasted malt, reminds of the aroma of a dry stout like Beamish. Minor aroma of red wine. Black with a red tint in the light. The head is small but thick and leaves a heavy lace on the glass. Several flavors, most prominent is the roasted malt again. Also coffee, some chocolate, and fruit. Unfortunately, all of these flavors seem to be holding back. This beer is thiner than I would like. Still very good, but maybe not 99th percentile good.

Great Porter. Coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor. Finishes creamy, smooth, and dry. Recommended.

Everything about this beer is great...I'm not a coffee/chocolate drink person, so I didn't fully enjoy the taste...however, it was still a good beverage...

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Poured out of 18.6 oz. bottle, bought at Liquorama in Upland, CA 10/5/03. Pours a silky-looking dark cola brown with a hint of red. Sudsy, beige head that lingers. Clear body but so dark that very little light passes through it. Aroma is malty deliciousness-- creamy, caramelly, smells a lot like a box of Cracker Jacks. A little too soft for my liking, but still very alluring. Taste is immediately of dark roasted malts and some nuttiness. Dark malt flavors grow and grow, having just enough sweetness on the back end to keep it tasty. Whereas many porters make me think, "Ok, this is good, but it should've been a stout," this one is a truly definitive and unique kind of beer. Not as much like a coffee or espresso as most other stouts and porters; it has a whole 'nother thing going on. Obviously shares some similarities with a good stout, but this doesn't feel like it's any sort of compromise at all. Active carbonation and even some acidity in the mouthfeel; thin-to-medium body but interesting texture, almost chewy and oily at the same time. Long finish with nuttiness, bitterness, and mellowing maltiness, as well as a hint of sourness that grows. Very complex stuff, revealing new layers with each sip and second of its taste. For me, this beer at once defines and transcends its style. Special, special stuff.

dark black and ruby highligts, cramy tan head. rich roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate etc. but with an almost intagible extra dimension and depth that seperates its self from the crowd. more intense as it warms, but it never loses that velvety smooth feeling.
