fantti (704) - FINLAND - MAY 26, 2014
A 8 % ABV version. Pours pitch black with steady two-finger constant head, which leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Beautiful beer. Aroma has intense licorice notes with burnt wood and hints of milk chocolate and earthiness. Taste is again very licorice-like, with woodiness and dark chocolate. Hints of burnt notes are laso present. Some milkiness is somewhere there also. Palate is very intense and little attacking, some bitterness is also present. All in all, very intense porter, almost too intense and the drinkability suffers a bit. Its also too attacking for sipping.

jmgreenuk (4334) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle at Taps, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is light grass hop and some malt. The flavour is strong bitter with a huge, totally dominating, grassy nettle hop palate and a long bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. I think the grass bucket of my lawnmower curled up and died in this brew. Seriously over-hopped for me. It’s half way toward a black IPA, but not in a nice way. I read some of the other ratings and it’s like I’m rating a different beer but I’m not. Can’t see a Best Before date on the bottle :-(

0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv, zwart met een mooie volle diepbruine kleur. Mooi aroma gebrande mouten zijn mooi in balans met koffie en chocolade tonen. Smaak is ook erg aangenaam met kersen tonen en rozijnen in de afdronk donkere chocolade. Zeer aangename porter

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Zeer donker bier met bruine kraag. Aroma van koffie, chocolade, gebrande mouten. Smaak is zoet met bittere afdronk. Er zit ook een klein zuurtje in. Body is mooi in balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost a little too harsh up front for not a much depth.mat the end. This has a great chocolate, coffee taste but is out done by an unwanted bitterness. Pours black with a light foam. Over a little too bitter for me in the style of Mikkeller .

SlackerMads (1606) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Black with a large dark brown creamy head. Good retention and lace. Roasted malt, chocolate, chalk, charcoal, ink, light green hops. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Medium bitter finish with roasted malt and smoke. A bit thin in the finish and a bit pungent.

oliodnb (305) - ITALY - MAY 18, 2014
Pours black with a fine, creamy even beige head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, burnt sugar. Strong flavor of coffee and chocolate, dark malt, light red fruits, nice initial sweetness. Light final acidity, thick mouthfeel. Very good, long lasting bitter aftertaste with some hops. Excellent.

domienS (90) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a dark black beer with a lot of dark stable beige foam. Smells burnt and roasted, chocolaty and some milkinesses, Strong malt smell with a hint of some spices. Taste: burnt malts, a hint of sweetness and a lot of malt bitter. leaves a long lingering bitterness in the palate. Great beer but if I would taste this blind I would think I be drinking a real good stout.

Zwart met donker schuim.. Zwaar, qua geur en smaak. Beetje te, maar waarschijnlijk wel lekker iets eerder pp de avond.
