The apearance is dark brown, red tinge, sligtht translucence. The aroma is sweet, brown sugar, chocolate. The flavor is the same as the aroma, but more roasty. Medium in body. Pine hop bitterness on the finish, some residual sweetness as well. Medium in body. Decent.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Very deep brown pour with a khaki ring of head. Rich yet soft aroma- some licorice notes and light vanilla under a predominantly chocolaty malt nose. Creamy body (all of his beers have a nice palate) Rich flavor but smooth- fudgey, only mildly roasted with a soft fruitiness from the yeast that meshes with the nice chocolty malt presence- light vanilla as well. A rich yet cohesive & easy drinker.

Draft at Pro Pig. Pours a deep brown umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of roasty malts and burnt chocolate. Sweet molasses, caramel, fig and a pretty thin body. Decent but nothing to special.

Bu en fut à Vices et Versa (12 oz). Brune cola foncée, petit collet avec de la denteille beige. Arome de café malté avec des notes de cassonade et un peu de cacao. Goût cochon de malte choco-cafiné, quelque fruits rouges mures et un peu sucré.

Bottle (500ml) at Volo, shared with Blankboy & GregClow. Appearance: Ruby red/brown with a small brown head. Aroma: Alcohol with a slight sour lemon notes, somewhat nutty. As it warms it becomes peaty and smoky. Flavour: Slight sour, malt, peat and chocolate. Very nice. Another great Hopfenstark number!

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2009
Dark brown in colour with a thin beige coloured head, no lacing. The aroma was sweet with some light chocolate, very faint hops, some burnt malts. The flavour is sweet and incredibly smooth, some coffee, roasted malts, very light alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium/light carbonation. Finishes long, dry with some hops.

A good porter, very light alcohol in the flavour but it never becomes a distraction, good balance.

Bottle at Mondial 2008, Montreal, Quebec.
Sampled on May 30, 2008.
