A very good robust porter with a strong roasted coffee aroma, a rich and complex palate with notes of chocolate and coffee and well balanced sweetness. the oak chips give the beer its unique character and influence mildly the aroma and the taste.

Great porter with amzing aromas, of hope, Choclate and wood. Great taste like vanilla and coconut flavors. Some yeast taste wich was abit problematic.

A truly great Porter! Strong black appearance, Dark brown foam. The strong roasted barley taste is well balanced by a certain sweetness and the Oak Aromas (mainly Vanilla) are very well noticed.

Aroma: Roasted barley, alcohol, caramel, very inviting. Appearance: Right to style. Pours a very, very dark brown. The light brown head dissipates quickly, but laces well. Taste: Sweet from start to finish. Palate: More carbonation than I prefer in a porter, but it works well. Medium to full body, creaminess. Finish is long and chocolatey. Overall: Really impressed. My brother brought this back from Israel for me to try in New York. With no idea what to expect, this is a great interpretation of the style. Much creamier (oats?) than other porters I’ve had. The oak characteristics make this 5% beer feel more like a 8-10% beer, but I mean that in a good way. There is a unique sweet flavor that I cannot identify, but it’s not a bad one...just puzzling. Sad that I may never try this one again. Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2010 At a tiny tasting in my house, bottle, pours very dark brown (almost black) with a nice very light brown espresso head that dissipates slowly, strong chocolate, sweetish, toasted aroma, woody and bitter taste, full and sensed body and coffee aftertaste, and overall my favorite israeli boutique beer.

Rated a draught sample at Beers 2012 Expo in Tel Aviv. Dark brown, cloudy with some tan foam. Weak roasted aroma. After a xouple of minutes, stronger grain appearance. Bitter taste with strong hints of wood. Long finish with dominant wood, medium carbonated, medium bodied. Very nice.

Very good. Aroma of chocolate, coffee. Earthy tones. A bit of strong vines in nose. Taste of coffee and tobacco. Earty and tobacco aftertaste. Full creamy body. Nothing extremely but very smooth and rich.

Pours black with red taints covered by a huge tan head, aroma of chocolate, caramel, toffee, wood and noticable whiskey notes, flavor of chocolate, malt, coffee, wood, chimney smokiness, nuts, nice forest fruit acidity and bitter pleasant finish, quite smooth mouthfeel, medium to full bodied. A Great Porter.
