Bamsen78 (4268) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel and dried fruit. Roasty, malty flavour with notes of caramel and coffee beans. Very well balanced. Dryish aftertaste. Needs to be re-rated as the bottle had been open for 24 hours. Still, very good.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Sam’s, Durham. One of the better examples of the style I’ve had in years, and a nice bargain to boot. Nice soupy dark brown pour, with a thick silken head, tons of lacing, and an overall appealingly substantive look. Rich and chocolatey as fuck, with dry notes everywhere for balance. Really a superlative example of the style, elegant and never too boozy.

andrewturba (1177) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Pours an opaque very dark brown with a brown head that quickly amounts to a soapy long lasting ring around the glass and leaves great lace. Aroma is rich sweet maltiness, licorice, toast, dried plums, raisins, toffee and mild alcohol. Flavour is roasted malts just short of being burnt, medium bitterness, dark malt dryness, rich sweet malt, toffee, dried fruits and alcohol.

Reimer96 (1486) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Pours an opaque black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet dried fruits like prunes and dates, cocoa and nice floral hop notes. Taste is sweet dried fruits, chocolate, bitter cocoa, slight roasted malts and a nice smooth bitterness on the finish. Finishes slightly dry but has a really good balance of sweet malts, bitterness and alcohol warmth. Would definitely drink this again and again.

gunnar (6346) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 21, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours almost pitch black with a big, fast collapsing tanned head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Smooth silky mouthfeel. Taste is light sweet chocolate, moderate burnt coffee to balance it off. Lingering bitter chocolate mixed with burnt coffee, even some smoked notes in the back.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
Rich dark brown with tan head and nice pointillist lacing. Nice rounded choco malt aroma, bit of booze. Gorgeous on the palate, bit of carbonation sizzling the rich and earthy taste onto the tongue. Top drawer porter, slightly heavy on the boozy finish.

thirdeye11 (5773) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2013
(500ml bottle) very dark brown, lasting dark tan head. Nose is so rich, cream, graham cracker, milk chocolate, complex and awesome. Taste of milk chocolate, chocolate malt, rich and creamy, smooth, cocoa nibs, not bitter at all just rich and delicious.

mixmasterob (957) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Black pour with a thin, frothy off white head. Big chocolatey aroma with notes of sweet fruit, heavy roast, light coffee, touch of vanilla and some booze. Flavors were roasty, lots of chocolate, hint of licorice and sweet fruits. Velvety mouthfeel. Top notch, one of if not the best in its style.

northropfrye (2600) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Dark black with mocha bubbly head and nice lacing. Aroma of bubblegum, roasted malts, chocolate, the dirt surrounding strawberry patches. Taste is quite roasted, coffee, dark chocolate, but with a nice fruity milk chocolate element as well. Awesome porter.
