large tan head with good retention and lotsa clingy lace. Black in color. Nose is soft with licorice and roast. Body is med/full, oily on the palate with a soft carbonation. Faded roast and chocolate flavors, slight caramel notes and faint smoke and coffee grinds. Slightly sweet finish is earthy and long. Bottle dated 12.30.12 Guess i need a fresher sample?

Aroma has salty licorice, some cocoa and distant herbal notes. Flavour has nice roastiness with dark chocolate and salty licorice. Slightly too salty but good still.

olio (5970) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF14. Thanks TBone!
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with a small firm beige head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy, some roasty malt notes, caramel and coffee. Flavor has coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, oat, some cocoa and dark fruit notes. Very nice balance, medium carbonation, dry malty finish. The coffee here seems very fresh although this is about one year old, very nice.

Opaque black color, small beige head. Toasted, bready aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Nice roasted flavor, some coffee and chocolate, evident oat smoothness in the flavor. Good lingering toastyness in the aftertaste. Great balance.

Stine (1490) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Dried out red fruit aroma with sarsaparilla and brown sugar. Whiffs of weak coffee. Certainly somewhat thin; its hard to find much malt depth immediately.

Streamlined dark malt flavor of bitter chocolate, grahams and bitter roots. The low density is appropriate, and the relatively high alcohol is unnoticeable even given that. It has what it should have and its well made.

One of the Better porters I have had. Really hoppy and smokey in flavor. Has a bitter aftertaste and smells chocolately. Had this one at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
