Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle pours a very dark brown with a dark tan head, decent lacing. The aroma is very strong, the barrel is noticeable. I also get the almond milk, and chilies. The taste is also strong; chilies, chocolate, creamy-ness of milk with the bitter finish of black beans. Overall quite enjoyable.

"This spiced up porter isn’t quite the sum of it’s parts, but it was pretty damn good! Can’t really pick out the almond milk or avacado leaves, but i bet you’d notice if they weren’t there. Black beans did add a subtle flavor and aroma. Mikkellers Porters have always been fantastic, and this is no exception. LOVE the malt profile, and the light spices. Bitter cocoa adds yet another dimension to this sessionable yet contemplative brew. Overpriced, but worth a try."

Bottle. The pour is thick and creamy, big dark frothy head. The aroma is chocolate and milk sweet stout. The taste is thick, sweet, with a very mild spice. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukasmh (122) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Bottle. Pours all black with really nice brown two finger head and dense coating. Aroma is chocolate and some coffee at first, then a fresh herby green aroma and spices. Sweet chili. Slight roast. Taste is complex with dark chocolate, coffee, medium sweet. Some fresh herbs, and much more roasted flavor than aroma. Finish is long, dry and bitter from the roasted malts, but with a hint of fruity chili. Stays in the mouth when breathing. Actually it works. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jaksmart (411) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Very pretty - thick and dense brown/beige head. Aroma is spicy with a thick chocolate base followed by chili, herbs and other delicious greenery. A bit of french roast coffee as well, also with a prickly spice to it. Taste is quite bitter with a chocolatey sweetness. Lots of spices follow suit. More of a roasted base in the taste. Lots of "green" flavors as well. Fuity chili towards the end, and especially as it warms.

Bottle @ M Café, Leuven. Black colour, brown foam. Soft carbonation. Very complex aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, almond, spices and some chili. Full body, creamy mouth feel. Very bitter with light sweetness. Good beer.
