A black ale that puts the flavor of the malt front and center. It has a mild hop character that balances strong notes of cocoa and hints of coffee. A full-bodied treat that pairs well with chocolate as well as fresh shellfish.

downender (7050) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
On tap at Top Hops, NY, 19/5/2015. Near black with a decent, beige, head. Aroma of chocolate, Belgian yeast and toasted malts. Flavour was sweetish, with more chocolate and a touch of dark fruit, leading to a dryish finish. Enjoyable.

bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - APR 21, 2015
A very enjoyable, easy to drink Porter. Not overly roasty or heavy. Just enough body, but light enough to be very sessionable. Very smooth flavor. A nice weekend afternoon pint.

Reddish brown pour, small khaki head. Roasted flavor with coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. A bit of hops throughout at nice touch. Nice feel on texture but a bit thin. Overall very good.

asheft (2753) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
[on tap at Biergarten, LaGuardia airport] Pleasant dark chocolate aroma with some faint hops and coffee and a little bit of chalk. Nearly opaque garnet black with clear highlights and a tawny tan ring and wisps on top. Chocolatey malt flavour complimented by some earthy pine hops and then vanilla. Fudge brownie come in last and lingers with a medium dark chocolate bitterness. Midway between smooth and crisp with medium carbonation and a medium body.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Tap pour. Dark brown, almost black, with solid finger and half of beige head. Very chocolaty aroma with minimal presentation of roasted malts. Inviting. Taste pulls in the chocolate from the nose. Nice balance between bitter and sweet. Average mouthfeel.

theisti (3504) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 17, 2014
1/2 liter mug draft at the Biergarten in terminal C of LaGuardia airport in New York City. The pour is a hazed black brown with a small khaki head. The aroma is soft roast along with a bit of honey sweet malt. The taste is simple straight forward malt roast and sweet, clean and tasty. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and a clean sweet malt finish.

Dogbrick (9661) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On draught at Fette Sau. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium creamy tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, sweet chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught@RNH. Dark, almost opaque brown color, good creamy beige head. Milky and chocolate aroma, light note of soya sauce. Light to medium bodied. Chocolaty and milky front, some caramel, low bitterness and short finish. Good taste but kind of empty. Perhaps with right food this is better.
