NYE bottle share at Proof. Deep opaque black, appreciable medium tan head and collar. Aroma is smokey malt, and spicy-piney hops. Taste is earthy-chocolate and smokey malt. Medium carbonation, which is too much for this style in my opinion. Nice thick body though.

Draft to half snifter at Dutch’s a few weeks back from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice dark chocolate, mild roast, hint of coffee, medium plus body, creamy texture, mild spices, nice beer.

Svart med høyt tykt brunt skum. Kaffe, mørk sjokolade, rosiner, brøddeig og noe mørke frukter og såpe. Bitter smak, mørk sjokolade og kaffe. Lett sødme og noe salt smak mot salt lakris. Fyldig.

Johnstledger8 (25) - IRELAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black with moderately lasting, dark brown head which fades to a thin layer. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, bitter coffee. No sign of the holiday spice in the aroma or the taste. Taste is more roasted malts, bitter coffee, some hoppy notes, dark chocolate. Long finish, medium carbonation, slightly viscous heavy body. Enjoyable but would like to see a more prominent presence of the holiday spice.

sk75 (30) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a black with an off white head as more porters do. The aroma is roasty with spices, the taste is similar but with a almost sour after taste, but its well balanced with a full slick mouthfeel, the carbonation is low. A really enjoyable beer.

Tmoney99 (11237) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Tap. Poured a black color with a medium frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

bij mij stond op het etiket (TIL.....FRA.......VIA......) . Tijdens het openen en inschenken viel het mij op dat het aroma een beetje tegen viel, chocolade, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, wellicht iets té koud ingeschonken. Zwart met een fantastische bruine kraag. Smaken zijn die van een goede Porter, koffie, chocolade, droog, redelijke body, kleverig in de mond met lage co2. Goed maar niet uitzonderlijk !
