65cl, schenkt zwart met bruine kraag. aroma komt héérlijk binnen, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, chocolade en koffie. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, zwak bitter, redelijk sterke gebrande en geroosterde mouten zoals een goede porter deze heeft en stervige koffie en chocolade. Ook deze porter is aan de droge kant. zwakke body, vrij dun van textuur, en lage co2, afdronk wat droog. redelijk

From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown like a cola, creamy tan head, lovely sweet chocolate aroma, rich roasted flavour and not overly thick. A great porter I could drink a lot of.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a nice looking mocha colored head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a thin layer of burnt malts, some chocolate and a sliver of molasses. The taste starts sweet with malts and quickly leads into dark roasted malts and sweet caramel malts, chocolate and a light molasses like note. Into the finish I get more of a pleasing chocolate sensation coming to the surface adding to the interest and depth. Nice.

Color negro con reflejos caoba y espuma beige. Aromas tostados, café y regaliz y azúcar moreno. Cuerpo medio-ligero con un inicio dulce y tostado que acaba en un amargor de café no muy intenso, aunque agradable. Buena.

hotstuff (4275) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2014
Rated on 12-22-2011. This bottled beer has a small semi-fizzy tan head with a long retention, semi-transparent reddish brown body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is lively, water and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer and worth trying.
