Bottle @ home from Saveur-biere.com - Color: ear black beer with small carbonation and small brown foam. Smell: roasted malt domination with caramel notes.

Transfer from BA review on 11-9-12-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance Ė Pours a deep brown color with a one finger cream head. The head has a decent level of retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell Ė The aroma is a wonderful blend of sweet chocolate and caramel, dark fruits of cherry, a bit of coffe and a good roasted brown bread smell. It is sweet and dark in aroma. Very nice.
Taste Ė The flavor begins of more brown bread with some notes of caramel sweetness. The caramel sweetness is enhanced as the flavor moves on and is meet by some mild chocolate flavors. These flavors create a rather sweet and bready flavor. The flavor then begins to dry out ever so slightly in the end with some bitter sweet chocolate and coffee flavors coming to the tongue. The mix of all the flavors combined together well and leave a very pleasant cocoa espresso flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel Ė For an only 5.4 % abv beer the body of the beer is on the smoother and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The feel is wonderful for all the dark and bittersweet flavors of the brew accentuating them and allowing them all to properly mellow on the tongue.
Overall Ė This is a fantastic brown ale. It has a great flavor with fantastic transitions. It has a great feel and a wonderful smell to boot A very good one to try if you have the chance. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Deep brown with one finger head. Solid porter marred with some slight off flavorings. Maybe thatís just the "complexity" that other people note, but doesnít seem quite right to me. Still, fairly enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Appearance is very dark, a slight brown tinge at the base. Two-finger mocha-coloured pillowy head which slowly sinks. Aroma- lots of chocolate malt, dark fruit hints, blackcurrant, liquorice, cocoa powder, milky coffee, some hops detectable. Taste is lovely- smooth, hints of dark fruits which give way to milky chocolate, some coffee, hint of espresso, hop bitterness, a bit creamy but not an overly full mouthfeel. The finish is quite long. An excellent porter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This should be the standard for the porter style! Carbonated dark pour w/ a thin tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is a delicious blend of chocolate & roasted notes. The mouthfeel is light & creamy all while carrying through this beerís complex flavor! Itís nearly a perfect balance between bitter & chocolate sweetness! Exceptional for the style!
