500ml bottle. Black Coffee Colour, thin tan head that doesn’t last. At the end you see elements of proteins or yeast. Aroma is roasty, burnt and woody. Medium sweet taste, roasty with subtle notes of hops. Easy to drink despite the 8% ABV. Really nice and smooth Porter.

fantastic appearance of almost black coloured beer and huge, creamy dark brown head;aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, hints of ash and minimal alcohol; taste of heavy roasted coffee, some chocolate,woody notes, hints of vanilla and liqueur - a bit too dominant roastedness, otherwise perfect porter

Douberd (2493) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
(Mikkeller Porter) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a big snifter, ABV 8% Pitch black colour on the body, dark brown head, tall and very thick. Fantastic retention, heavy lacing on the glass. Great aroma, with roasted malts, light alcohol -stronger after a swirl of the glass-, vanilla. Taste has also plenty of dark roasted malts, ash, coal, light alcohol, coffee, less vanilla but still there on the background, light acidity. Mildly bitter on the aftertaste. Full body, almost able to chew it, soft carbonation, numbing on the palate. Overall a fantastic porter.

alkolas510 (687) - SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar rostad malt, kaffe och mörk choklad. Samma i smaken och ganska fyllig men endå tråkig

Amazing beer. Complex taste, of roasted malt, coffee and dark cacao. Has a pleasent crisp and the same boozy depth that barrel aged beers often have, although it hasn’t been aged as far as I know. Very good.
