3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Black Coffee Colour, thin tan head that doesnít 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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. It is written on that bottle that it is brewed and bottled at De Proef Brouwerij in Belgium. Pitch black with light brown, thick head.
NOSE : black chocolate, strong lactic aromas, cocoa, cheese, caramel, vanilla, nuts, dried raisins.
SIP : medium thick and oily with delicate carbonation. Sweet and creamy with strong cocoa and black chocolate like flavors. It has a delicate booze feeling to it too. While it keeps the sweet layer it becomes a bit dry like coffee. Bitterness is moderate and it is mostly burned chalk like. Finish is dry and bitter with earthy feeling on tongue. Almost like an ashtray but not putting off. Notes of banana and red grapes reveal themselves after couple of sips. Maybe even apples.
OVERALL : a very nice and complex aroma comes with a smooth body and rich flavor. Complex and balanced enough to live up itís reputation. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botella de 50 cl. De tranqui en en casa una tarde de primavera de 2013. De color negro intenso y poca espuma color marfil. Cuerpo ligero y poco cremoso con regusto amargo verde y tostado de cafť . Ligera porter con finos sabores tostados y amargos verdes muy bien combinados. Numerosos posos en fondo de botella que al echarlos en el vaso potencian algo el sabor tostado haciťndola un poco mas cremosa. Recomendable no muy fria para potenciar un poco mas el sabor. Bastante lejos de esas grandes porter de la gama alta y mas aun de las envejecidas en barriles con los que nos sorprende Mikkeller. Una porter basica en el mundo Mikkeller

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half liter bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha, cellar aged a while (2 months?). Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has cocoa powder, caramel, and espresso, with faint smoke. Taste is of sweet caramel, significant bitter roastiness, some milk chocolate, molasses and hints of salty meat smoke. Medium to full bodied. Faint alcohol. Finishes bittersweet, with a nice balance of the two. A touch richer, and this would be world class.

Pine coffee aroma. Sweetness in there too. Dark appearance with wispy yellowish head. Low carbonation. Creamy texture. Bitter aftertaste but there is a sweetness in the malts. Woody pine dark chocolate with liquorice flavours. Well balanced. Very nice.

Light auburn head with a full bodied flavor. Perfect beer for dark crafted fans. I was pleasantly surprised by this porter and itís slightly chocolately taste. Donít expect to see any light seep through your glass.
