Reddish black beer, thin white head. Malty coffee aroma. Flavour is similar, with a dash of chocolate, vanilla and some tart, fruity hop. Mellow, hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts with a slighty sweet coffee note. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate and there is a subtle nuttiness. A smooth beer but a little thin.

I could be way off the mark with this but my initial reaction was Black Jack gum! Smells just like a fresh pack! Being a porter of course the sweet sugar taste isnít present but licorice, licorice, licorice screams outta the glass!

Thick head. Dark brown, almost black color. Smells wine and bread that is about to be toasted. The mildest non-nitro beer Iíve ever tried. Sweet bread, roast that is there for you in the aftertaste as well. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.†

Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tall goblet. Very dark brown, minimal head. Typical porter light coffee roast blended with plum nose. Roasty flavor, finishes with refreshing touch of bitter. A solid porter, but nothing terribly special.
