Dark brown pour, with a small tan head. Not quite opaque, but approaching it. Roasty coffee/malt aroma. Flavor is surprisingly chocolaty, with a very coffee dominate finish. Some English hops are present in the finish, but aren’t overpowering, even at the 60 IBUs they claim. Fairly dry finish. Good mouthfeel -- creamy and thick compared to most other porters I’ve had.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Dark brown to black color with a thin tan head. Huge coffee bomb on the nose with undertones of roasted malt and chocolate. Body is thin and light and very drinkable. Some dark fruit and licorice noticeable as it comes to room temperature. Nice smooth finish. A really great porter.

Eructoblaster (3246) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle - 355ml. Pours a black body with brown glints and a thin beige foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with woody, spicy, and roasty hints. Its well balanced taste carries oaky, liquorice, cocoa, and nutty notes. Ends with a long bitter/roasty finish. Interesting.

Not a whole lot of smell there, smells of coffee...not much else. Tastes of coffee, wood, and nuts. A tiny bit bitter as well. Very light in terms of drinkability, similar to an ale I would say. Used to drinking stouts when I drink a dark beer, and when drinking a porter, I tend to get surprised that they are so light. Still very good however, would recommend if you are wanting to try a very high quality porter with the ’porter’ flavor.

CharmCityCrab (188) - Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours black with a hint of brown. Small head, minimal carbonation. Aroma of roasted dark chocolate coffee grinds. Rich taste with coffee upfront melting into dark chocolate and milk mixed with more coffee. Brewed according in compliance with the German beer purity laws per bottle. Goes well with Gordon Lightfoot, you know which song.

demannu (110) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Easy drinking porter. A little to light for my liking. More hops than I’m used to in a porter. Solid flavor though with a dry finish. Decent but not amongst my favorites.

Smooth, dark, coffee-chocolate taste...there is nothing I don't love about this beer. It goes with everything, and light enough to drink any time of year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
