4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle, beersofeurope.com. Well, where do I start? From the pour, which started quite flat, this deeply tan coffee coloured head bubbled into life and itís retaining well, as I get about a third of the way down my pint glass. This is a stunning beer. All the heavy roast malt characteristics you could want in a porter, but then a faintly spicy , but noticeable, hop note creeps in to give a great balance. On the tongue itís smooth, rich and so fully flavoured. Thereís liquid chocolate in the finish and the aftertaste is a myriad of dark complex flavours. Mouthfeel is absolutely fasntastic and it is well coated. One of the finest Iíve tasted and, yet again,Aa beer that really belies itís ABV. Almost unnoticeable.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep, warm sable just a hair above black with a very thick and rather persistent tan head. Strong, smoky aroma has notes of roast coffee, licorice and semi-sweet chocolate. Bold flavor has a smoky overtone and includes coffee, licorice and chocolate tones plus a bitter hoppy note and more than a hint of sweetness. Full-bodied texture is smooth and quite fizzy, leaving a smoky, chocolaty finish. If this is not the best porter I have ever had, it is certainly one of the best. Keep up the good work, Mikkeller!

I love this beer. Thick, dark body, off white head, light fizz. Chocolate, coffee and caramel flavour. Delicious. I want more.

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.

Cerveza porter, capa de espuma muy ligera, cremosa y pegajosa color beige. Olor principalmente a cafť y malta tostada. En boca se aprecian las maltas tostadas y achocolatadas, pronunciŠndose las ķltimas sobre todo y dando paso a un sabor ligeramente lupulado, dejando un final bastante dulce.

Pours jet black with huge lacing. Aroma is a little coffee, roasted malts, some dried fruits, a small amount of hops. Simply amazing porter!

Bardzo palone i wytrawno gozkawe piwo. Oczywiscie jak na porter czarne, gleboko geste z ciemno brazowa gigantyczna piana i trwala. W smaku palonosc spora slodowosc oraz ciemny opiekany chleb w tosterze. W zapachu nuty bzu lilli oraz karmelu, chmiel takze dosc intensywnie wyczuwalny. Kawa zbozowa i czekolada z duza iloscia kakao. Swietny porter. Mistrzostwo

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, Iíve only had a handful of great porters, and this is one! Palate was thick and oily finish.

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

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.
