Very earthy malts in aroma. The flavor is coffee,caramel, a decent hoppiness but not overly so and fruit. A great porter, excellent.

Poured from the bottle. Nice tan creamy head very prevalent while enjoying. Aroma is great roasty, chocolate, I do detect cherries. In the flavor as well. Very good espresso like flavor. This is a great porter, I’ve only had a handful of great porters, and this is one! Palate was thick and oily finish.

Expensive $12 bottle I bought at Sam’s Quik Shop based on GT2’s rating. This better be good. Pour is pretty much black with a thin tan head that lasts. It smells very roasty and full, mild cocoa notes, some espresso, light cherry skins. Taste is also full, some more roast, some sweeter cocoa, light coffee/espresso. Kinda similar to the Nogne Porter the first I had it, but this one has a much fuller body. Alcohol is hardly noticed. Best Mikkeller beer I’ve had in quite some time.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at SuperBowl 46. Black pour with layer of light brown head. Extremely bitter roastedness is the biggest note from this. Dark chocolate, burnt, drying bitterness, almost chalky, on the tail, but upfront sweetness. Not one of my favorites from Mikkeller.

Molt cremosa i molta xocolata. Lleugera i fàcil de beure. Molt interessant per començar a iniciar-se amb negres.
