Rich porter. Suddenly a lot of bitterness in the taste and not too much chocolate and coffee. Good aftertaste.

Dark brown with a little beige head. Aroma is earthy, cocoa, coffee and roasted malt. Rich coffee and cocoa taste, bread, english hop, some notes of olives. Bitter aftertaste. Great beer but could be better with less carbonatation.

Nesten sort, med tett, brunt skum. Deilig, myk aroma av fløtekaramell, kakao, rosin og malt. I munnen kommer det frem bitre kaffetoner og et mørkt, fyldig maltpreg. Dette er et realt øl. God balanse med friskhet og lett sødme.

Black, medium white head. Caramel, roastiness and chocolate on the nose. Full-bodied chocolatey bitterness with hints of coffee and caramel. Finishes tingly, warming and lightly bitter. Lovely.

33cl embossed bottle. Such a shame I havenít tried this before, but well there it was sitting on the singles shelf waiting for me. BB 6/15. Pours a dark brown with a tan head that doesnít leave much lacing.The aroma is an interplay of fruity and nutty with cocoa and coffee notes sprinkled in. Flavor is toffee, fullerís yeast, again nuts, toasted grain, metal, subtle fruit and spices. Even vanilla in there. And it tastes fresh. Complex as they come, smooth and easy drinking. Right up there with Founders.

In bottle. Dark brown. Red shadows. Beige head non persistent. At nose fairly intense, not very persistent. Roasted malt, coffee, a bit of dark chocolate, hezelnut, raisin. Medium body, soft carbonation. Sweet entry, very tasty in its roasty flavours, a bit dry final

shared with Konfuzzi. Aromas of toast, mild near fruity bitter chocolate, coffee, a tender touch of dark toffee, and maybe a hint of herbal/earthy hops. Taste makes them all reappear, this time with that obviously yeast-derived ripe sour cherry keynote. Subtle but pronounced coffee and bitter chocolate roast aftertaste. A thoroughly balanced, utterly fine Porter!
