A very tempting extreme twist on the classic robust porter, brewed with over 300 kg of malt and infused with a dash of rich Dutch cocoa and whole vanilla beans. Luscious chocolate, coffee, and caramel flavors are balanced by a hint of vanilla and a body of 6% alcohol. A perfect winter warmer or a complement to meat pies and chocolate-based desserts. A definite "unisex" beer with great appeal for both guys and gals.

Barwa: ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, niezbyt obfita, szybko opadająca. Aromat: po otwarciu przyjemne czekoladowe nuty. Potem jednak zostają one przytłumione przez inne - głównie melanoidyny. Występuje także lekka kwaskowość, akcenty miodowe, owocowe (banan). Alkohol czy chmiel niewyczuwalne. Zapowiadana wanilia niestety także nie. Smak: słodowy, umiarkowanie pełny i niezbyt słodki. Lekka czekolada, spieczone ciasto, ciemne słody oraz wytrawna końcówka. alkohol dobrze zamaskowany.

Bottle. Poured a slick inky black, with a short-lived fine tan head. Vanilla bean and espresso nose. Quite fizzy, and not as sticky as most porters, but still a good robust body. Luscious flavours of dark chocolate, coffee and rich roasted malts. Nice bitterness, with just enough sweet depth. A winner.

Pours a fairly clear pretty dark brown with a small beige ring of foam. Aroma is chocolate, toffee, vanilla, and roasted malt. Flavour is chocolate, licorice, vanilla, roasted malt, coffee, toffee, and some bite(alcohol I believe). Really impressed with this one!

Reimer96 (1066) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Pours a clear dark brown with a red hue and a nice brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts and latte coffee. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts and a bitter cappuccino on the finish. Medium carbonation leads to a full well balanced flavor on this robust porter.

Light brown, thick head. Fresh malts, chocolate, big chocolate character. I like this one more than I usually do with chocolate beers.

On tap at déjàvu. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head. Nose of chocolate, vanilla, coffee and slight malt. Taste offers a bit more with coffee upfront leading to a mocha like lingering finish. Leaves you coming back for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Carbonation is definitely higher than other porters, beautiful aroma followed by a chocolate hint finishing on a slightly bitter note. Well balanced, overall a solid beer.
