Bottle sample at a tasting at Alexey & Rafaela’s place. Thanks Alexey. Black with a nice tan head. Nice roasty aroma with some chocolate. Roasty flavor with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied.

Pours dark brown, no head. Aroma is dry and roasted. Flavor is thin and forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demannu (121) - New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2015
Dark brown thick looking pour. Froathy tan head. Roasted malt nose (nothing special). Strong medium body (very satisfying). Definitely more of a hops presence than I’m used to in a porter (not a bad thing). Nice version of a porter.

On draft. Dark, dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate and caramel malts on the nose. Perfect medium mouthfeel. Very clean chocolaty taste, with an interesting roasty bitterness on the back end.

Kevin (2129) - New Mexico, USA - APR 3, 2015
black body with a light brown head. roasty orange scented pine nose. roast note is in the forefront with a caramel chocolate underneath. hops are present and aggressive. leaving a mild burning feeling on my tongue. some notes of cream and caramel emerge as it warms. chocolate note is very subdued. a nice sipper at the end of the day.

Pours pitch black with a one finger khaki head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, bakers coco, molasses, burnt caramel, some woody notes, and some piney hops. Taste is cold brew coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla, pine, grassy hops, burnt brown sugar, and some toffee. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, chewy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, semi dry, long finish. Overall, a very tasty, complex, well crafted porter that is among the best of the style.

smiley31 (4) - East Aurora, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2015 does not count
This is a delicious porter, rich in flavors with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Pours well and holds its body throughout the glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slubgob (209) - West Hartford, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle into pint. Thick, creamy brown head that lingers. Mahogany, nearly black. Nose is odd -- mineral, almost chlorine note. Chocolate and malt lie underneath. Taste is dry coffee and more chocolate. Not surprisingly, reminiscent of their stout but drier and a bit more roasty. Long finish, more chocolate and stout notes. Pretty good, a bit richer and more cocoa than I typically like foor a porter, by decent.

0,5l fles die jeroen had meegebracht naar pokeravond. Zwart met een crème kraag. Diepe mout tonen mooi gebalanceerd 99% chocolade komt naar boven. Nice

dhatton (127) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Thick, dark tan head rests atop a very dark brown, basically black body. Immediately smelled a sweet roastiness laced with chocolate and coffee. Very rich tastes of cocoa and dense cold brew coffee. Mild earthiness from the malts, well-balanced. Creamy texture with some hints of cola. Slightly bitter, hoppy finish. Definitely would recommend this hearty porter.
