4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer tasted like a carbonated chocolate latte. It looks great: a dark brown hue that was slightly transparent at the edges of my special beer glass. The taste at first was almost too chocolately and coffee-like, but I think I served it too cold. I had it with spicy-hot BBQ wings and pizza, and it tasted amazing together. I highly recommend this beer if you can find it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep brown with bright orange highlights and a tall tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, mild licorice and dark fruit. The taste is roasted malt, chocolate, mocha, dark fruit ending dry with a bit of molasses to balance. Medium/full in body and somewhat creamy with compact nicely done carbonation. Well, this one lives up to itís reputation...an excellent beer!

Very nice,. Aroma is great, pour lacks a head, but then thatís the story of my life. Fantastic bitter wash in the mouth and lovely balanced coffee, raisin, coffee notes. Mucho enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml, flaske, 5,4 % ABV, gave fra laboko - tak, 13. marts 2014.
Ibenholt-farvet engelsk Porter med 1 cm tykt moccafarvet skumtop.
Dejlig duft af mørk chokolade og ristet malt. Noget morgenmads-duft ligeså. En smule metallisk oveni.
God traditionel porter-smag af kaffe- og mørk chokolade-bitterhed. En lillebitte sødme at spore. God smag i.f.t. alkoholstyrke.
Et fint afstemt indhold af kulsyre, lige under middel.
I denne %-klasse er det klart en Porter at foretrække.

Nicely complex, rich on chocolate, some smoke, and nicely balanced bitterness. Refreshing, tasty and well carbonated as well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown body with an average, frothy, tan head, mostly lasting with a fair lacing.
Moderate-to-heavy malty aroma (roasted, light caramel) with notes of coffee, chocolate, nuts, licorice (more evident when the beer warms up a bit) and maybe some raisins.
Moderate-to-heavy bitter flavour with light sweetness; moderate bitter finish and roasted coffee in the aftertaste.
Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can. Pour dark brown with a thin head. Deep chocolate and caramel aroma. Slight toasted oak flavour. Just a touch of bitterness on the finish and minimal carbonation. Not as nice a flavour as the aroma would have suggested. Fair but not special.

Taste is getting better by the time. Very interesting fresh spicy taste at the end. Very good porter (definitely recommend) but thatís it, donít have this own something.

Almost black beer with beautiful dark ruby reflections, thick creamy head. Aroma and taste is dark fruits, coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Great finish, very drinkable. Excellent.

Uma Porter muito equilibrada. O seu amargor n„o se sobressai. Maltes torrados que n„o s„o enjoativos.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an excellent porter. 500 mL can from the LCBO. Pours a deep chocolate brown. Modest head that persists. Toffee and chocolate aromas that continue on the palate. Nice log semi-sweet finish. Delicious. It's like a dessert.
