(Bottle) Black colour with brief, foamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with strong black coffee, anise, liquorice, burnt sugar, ashes, soy sauce and a touch of clove. Malty, roasted, spicy taste with notes of strong black coffee, burnt sugar, anise, liquorice, dark chocolate, cinnamon, coriander seed and a generous cacao bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Quiet spicy and powerful, but very nice.

Draft to taster. Keg says "To Via From", so I’m rating it under this vintage. Looks good; a fairly opaque with razor-thin mocha lacing. Smells And tastes good; dark malt and chocolate with some roast, good balance, and a nice mouthfeel. Good beer!

Aroma has roasted malt, some spices and fruity notes. Flavour has roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee notes and spices. Quite similar than other beers in this series.

jkwood04 (3950) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 8, 2012
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little coffee and chocolate, but a weird hoppiness that doesn’t blend with the rest of the beer. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. The porter element of this is great, but the hops bring weird flavors that shouldn’t be there.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Opaque black beer. Thick chocolate foamy head. Softish palate. Light hops - grassy. Some minerals. Soft hoppy tasty porter!

750mL c&c 2009 Ed thanks to Travlr. Ink pour. Small reddish mocha head. No retention. Weak ring of bubbles. Sweet fruit juice and soy sauce nose. Taste is very dirty, soil, headache inducing ashtray and cigarette. Whatever the malt bill is for these higher abv dark beers brewed at de Proef like Black Hole, Hei, these. They taste the same and need a recipe revamp.

Travlr (11932) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Black color, thick brown head with good retention. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is dilute Starbucks and dark cocoa.
