Bottle (traded with Allen, big thanks!): Literally black with a lacy brown-beige head; roasted malt and cacao powder, accompanied by a subtle fruitiness, in the sweet-bitter nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, smooth; robust sweet-bitter finish with tons of roasted malt and cacao-powder. Very good, very aromatic swiss "Stout"......

Dogbrick (9118) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle at Brasserie Fédéral in Zürich. This brew pours black with a thick light brown head recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and malt, along with some hops in the background. Medium body with a strong roasted coffee character and notes of sweet malt, hops and a touch of anise. The finish is brown sugar and coffee. Pretty good all around.

(bottle, with thanks to Allen!) Black coloured hue with a brown and dense mid-sized foamy head. Sweet roast-malty aroma with notes of chocolate, marzipan and a touch of cassis. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Hearty malty taste with roasted notes, chocolate, a tinge of coffee and a berry-fruity touch; moderately roasted malty and subtle fruity finish with choco and hoppy notes. Pretty superb…wait a minute…Porter !? 28.I.10
