deyholla (6973) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has roasted malts and sweet dark grains with a nice sweetness underlying. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains and a sweet chocolate that are joined by coffee and roasted malts.

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire-brune et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, de chocolat noir, moyen de houblon herbeux, légèrement résineux et aux notes fruitées (agrumes), léger de noix avec des notes de pain brûlé, de caramel et de café. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux notes huileuses. Goût de malt rôti avec des notes de café et de pain grillé dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un léger-moyen goût de chocolat noir avec des notes de caramel et quelques traces de tabac. Parallèlement, une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux et légèrement résineuse se développe jusqu’en finale où l’on y décerne également des traces de noix. Post-goût plutôt long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de rôti, de houblon herbeux aux notes résineuses, léger de chocolat avec des traces de café.

bytemesis (3503) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep reddish black with a medium brown head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is typical for the style - roasty with notes of coffee, cigarrettes, perhaps cocoa. Flavor is about the same, light sweetness and light to medium bitterness with a touch of acidity on the finish. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice beer.

Holdwine (1082) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2013
In a bottle (12/20/12). Fantastic. Espresso dark pour. Nice chocolate and toffee notes. Chocolate continues on the tongue. Quite malty with a dry lingering finish. Dark fruit in the back, but the malt rules supreme here. Quite nice.

Bottle acquired via trade with Thedrooid...thanks Dan! Mahogany pour with chestnut edges and a small latte head. Dark chocolate, brown sugar, burnt caramel, roasted malt and a touch of vanilla. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Delicious!

500ml bottle shared by blankboy with me, jercraigs. Deep ruby-brown, solid creamy tan head. Nice roasty porter nutty aroma, quite herbal. Taste - a little harsh, a bit vegetal, roast, generic bitterness - okay. Average body, a bit slick, decent bitter finish, quite dry. Good.
