worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - DEC 23, 2013
Black with a thick, tan, lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of liquorish, coffee, roast, sweet malt, red berries, and a light freshness. Medium smooth thin, to oily body. Tastes of sweet berries, balanced against the coffee roast and a bit of ash. A bit thinish and flavourful but needs more roast.

ads135 (2814) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Aptly named beer. The mouthfeel is one of the best aspects of this already very nice, dark, rich beer. Chocolatey, very roasty, and smooth.

Jamesthebrit (232) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2013
A: Strong aroma. Roasty. Hint of coffee. A touch of acidity. very nice. A: Looks fine. Brown with tan head. Good lacing. T: Very smooth taste. Verrry smooth. Hits with chocolate and roasty coffee. A little watery acidity in the middle. Finish is smooth and chocolatey. P: A little watery. Solid though Overall this is a very good porter. Lots of great roasty chocolate. The watery hit in the middle takes something away but otherwise a great blend of flavors.
