Pours a ruby black, very little head retention and lacing. Aroma is laden with blackstrap molasses, as well as light roasted malts, coffee, roastyness. Body is somewhat light for the style, flavor is roasty and very floral. Tastes wonderful, just not my thing i think. A decent porter, not one of my favorites though.

BBD 7/14/15. Pours a beautiful deep dark ruby that approaches black. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. Rich nose of dark chocolate over a rich caramel malt base with a touch of roast. Light medium body with a smooth texture that lacks creaminess. Above normal carbonation with a nice burst of effervescence in the middle and a prickly finish. The flavor profile is less intense than expected, a bit complex and very well balanced. It begins with a slight bakerís chocolate flavor that flows into a mild herbal bitterness in the middle. The richness of the nose never expresses itself. Roast appears in the middle - finish transition. Caramel never really becomes significant. The finish is a slow fade of roast and herbal hops.

willisread (483) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 19, 2015
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 (3253) - 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.

BananaBi11 (17) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2015
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 íporterí flavor.

CharmCityCrab (189) - 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.

Cocoa roasted malt aroma and flavor. Full bodied with a dry finish. Smooth Porter. Bit of a lactose smoothness. Pretty enjoyable and well done Porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demannu (119) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Easy drinking porter. A little to light for my liking. More hops than Iím 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
