3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An unclear brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with main notes of chocolate, but also hints of wood. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of chocolate, but also some wood, and a slight acidity, leading to a dry finish.

A hazy brown beer though with a reddish hue, and with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by caramel. The flavor is sweet with chocolate being most dominant, but also some notes of caramel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Apparently a new and different recipe. Opaque, very dark brown with a deliciously, creamy, cappuchinoish head. Roasted and lightly burned, malty character. Good, full body with plenty of roasted malt and some sweetness. Vague burned accents that don’t leave the usual ashy bitterness. Quite neato. Thanks to Bierkönig for sharing. 160206

(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown, but not opaque as such. Small, creamy, beige head. Aroma of burned caramel. Flavour of roasted malt, but smooth and mellow - not sharp and burned. Very limited bitterness. Pleasant. 120804

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Bottled at Lorry, #2. Very dark brown beer with a large beige head leaving nice lacings. Lightly sour aroma with roastiness and chocolate. The flavor has lots of coffee and roastiness and with caramel and chocolate. Dry and slightly bitter finish. A nice beer, but not their best version of a porter. (5-4-6-4-13-3.2) (060328)
Earlier Rating: 3/21/2006 Total Score: 3.6
Bottled. (#18) Dark brown, almost black beer with a small, brown head. Lovely aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. The flavor has the same elements, and in addition theres a slight fruitiness to it. A slight sourness leads to a dry, bitter finish with roastiness. This is the newest version of the beer, and the most appropriate rating. (060321)
