What style is this?? Dark chocolate brown with a thick film floating on top. Aroma is smelless..... faint amounts of all things that have specific smells. It has a taste!! Ash, bitter chocolate, mighte be rye hard to tell. Taste good is all I know. A sweetness lingers in the background. Is that banana i detect?? Good brew.

Bottle. Dark viscous pour, minimal tan head that coats the sides of the glass leaving behind resinous legs. Aroma, coffee, strong roast, hops, very enticing and aromatic. Taste, sweet up front, a bit nutty, lots of roast and coffee like character, with a semi bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyed this!

RasmusOtt (2389) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2014
Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of nice roasted dark malts, dark chocolate, caramel, roasted coffee, some notes of grassy hops in the background and some sweet liquorice. Quite textbook smelling! Taste of roasted coffee (some fruity espresso notes), roasted dark malts, toffee, some hoppy notes, liquorice and with a fairly smooth and suitable body. Carries alcohol very well. Textbook clean porter!

A nice well rounded brew overall with a dark completely opaque black body and tan head. The nose is rich and roasted with big boisterous coffee and rye toast notes. A bit sweet and dessert like with sweet chocolate and buent espresso flavours. Overall a warm finish with lingering roasted bitterness. A nice brew!
