marcus (6342) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a slightly bitter burnt chocolate flavor with a hint of liquer. Not bad, though it leaves an odd taste on the palate.

Shard with Wim at his home. Brown colored beer with small brown head and no carbonation visible. Malty roasted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is roasted sweet bitter coffee hinted.

Borresteijn (4563) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Sample from a 37.5cl Bottle at De Bierkoning. Black with a beige-brown head. Aroma of hard-roasted malts, chocolate, spices, caramel, sweet and ashy at the same time, coffee. Flavour is medium-sweet, dry, ashy, chocolate, light sweet booze, spices, chili, coffee/mocha/caramel bitter roasted finish. Medium-bodied. Really nice.

mcberko (6000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2014
375mL bottle, pours black with a medium light brown head. Aroma brings out lots of grand marnier barrels, caramel, and booze. Flavour brings out a lot of roasted malt, almost burnt, followed by grand marnier liqueur, and alcohol. A little rough around the edges - weird choice of barrels for a porter. It’s alright.

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Thanks to Bill for bringing this! Poured rich black with a short dark tan head. The aroma picked up burnt black malts and ashy malts with some vinous notes and cognac accents.. missed the orange than I hoped for. The flavor found similar stuff.. burnt black malts and lesser chocolate at the core with vinous notes and oak around.. more roast and barrel character on the finish. Medium-plus bodied and very dry on the palate.. burnt and decently integrated with the barrel.

Thanks Bill. Pours to a pitch black body with a creamy dark tan head. The beer truly reminds me of the cognac one. Not really a whole lot different. Subtle orange if anything. Charred black malt.

jesperhammer (2836) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2014
20-APR-2014, bottle @Henrik, brought by Morten. Black with lasting Brown head. Aroma is weak roast and alcohol. Taste is grand marnier, roast, burnt. High carbonation, full body. Fine. One of the better Fra Til Via.

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Capped 375 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very brown/black with a dark tan foamy head. Aromas of chocolate and liqueur. Could be orange. Med body. Flavor is dark chocolate, orange, and maybe cognac. Maybe even some coffee. It’s more dry than not. Could be some oak astringency. Bottom line: It tastes good.

Scopey 5K Tasting in deepest Croydonia. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light and airy and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth dark malt, mild bitterness. Little dark chocolate and coffee. Light generic fruitiness, perhaps a little orange. Finishes dry. Once again the Grand Marnier provides the weakest barrel presence. Could do with longer in the barrel or perhaps better barrels. Still decent though!
