Tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Aroma has chocolates, vanilla and roasted malts. Pours black with a small brown head. Taste is delicious with some chocolates, vanilla, coffee and is very sweet and nice. Palate offers a full body and places itself nicely in the mouth. Overall a very solid beer. Nice!

"This robust porter had a little age on it, and was sweet-leaning in the aroma, and the flavor. Complex mix of malted chocolate, roast, and dark fruits. Great medium-full bodied feel without any alcohol heat. Nice bittersweet finish."

Light tan foam along dark brown to black brew. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate. Big roasty nose, oh this was wonderful. The big malt flavor and well balance roast to help balance. The coffee and toffee really shoots through. Great Brew!!!
