Just as with pretty much everyone else this was my first beer @ Borefts 2012 // 2010 Draft vintage. Half a tasting glass pours, this pours rather viscous almost syrup-like, impressive. Pitch black, little in the way of a tanned head. Smells is oily, smoked almost going over touch peated, some licorices, thick, mocha dark fruits. This prunes, licorice almost seaweed and turf like notes in the flavour, tad bitter, thick oily roast, viscous, bitter sweet, sweet small touches of bitter and warming cognac in the back. Solid sludgy with quite sludgy carb. Damn fine beer but comparable equally good stuff is out there. Lovely to try and damn mighty fine tick. Probably too high expectations no beer can live up to - not really the beers fault.

jmgreenuk (4985) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2012
Draft at Borefts beer festival. Crude oil like pour with a thin brown head. This beer is everything you expect from a quality porter and then some more. It has that lovely roasted malt aroma with loads of chocolate and liqourice in the flavour coupled with oak and a hint of cognac, which thankfully wasn’t dominant. A gorgeous, well rounded and very drinkable beer.

Pitch black body, tan head. Creamy, dark chocolate, roasted nuts. Delicious. But the proof is in the taste actually. So rich, wow. Lives up to its fame. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

Bottle at Akkurat. Opaque black liquid with minimal tan head. Aroma of licorice, cognac, oak, chocolate, tobacco (snus), biscuit and some light leather. Nicely complex. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice, biscuit and cognac. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation and very velvety liquid. Delicious.
