Beerheart65 (1001) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Dark brown pour ends up looking black in pint, huge creamy/frothy light brown head and lots lacing. Lots of medium roast coffee, bit dark chocolate, licorice and bit medicinal herbs. Dry and roasted, lots coffee still, medium body, quite bitter lasting to long finish. Easy to drink and enjoy if u enjoy coffee.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This sublime Porter juxtaposes roasted coffee, dark chocolate and resinous hops until lush fruitiness takes over.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the black with dark brown hues.
-The aroma is spellbinding. Wealthy malts, coffee and vibrant hops peering through.
-The flavour profile is quite different from the aroma! Much more fruit driven, less roasty and sweet.
-Resinous hops come with citrusy tips as well.
-The cask mouthfeel is very enjoyable; soft yet full.

On cask at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some roasted malt - faint burnt malt with light chocolate and some piney hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - and lightly sweetish flavor, some roasted malt and light chocolate, light piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, some roasted - faint burnt malt and light chocolate - faint coffee, light - some piney hoppyness. Really nice dryish and well hopped stout with roastiness - could use more body.

TET (1684) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
A colablack beer with a big and light brown head. The aroma is strongly roasted, almost burned, grapefuity hops, coffee, some chalk. Taste is strongly roasted, black coffee, some balancing sweetness, grapefruits. Almost medium bodied, easy to drink. Strongly roasted but not too much. Nice and grapefruity hops.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home, BBE 20.02.2015
Aroma is nice with roastiness, ash and licorice aromas. Flavour has ash, licorice, some grapefruit-like hops and hints of resin. Aroma was promising but flavour is just too ashy; and palate is a bit watery too.
