Relatively dark red appearance with no head. Complex tastes coffee, grass, alcohol, licorice and some spruce. Full-bodied, medium carbonation, and a lasting aftertaste of burnt peppers. Quite good porter

PorterPounder (6986) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 500 ml bottle. Deep, very dark brown leading to a cable black with an initial frothy mocha colored head that thins but sticks around a while. Aroma has some nice licorice accents, some chocolate accents. a touch of rye mintiness. Flavor is full bodied and delicious with some licorice, coffee, chocolate, a back end of rye mintiness. High ABV hidden extremely well. Rich, thick sticky mouthfeel. Extremely solid.

Aroma of sweet malt, rye bread, dark chocolate, some coffee and lots and lots of roasted malt. A great creamy and full bodied porter that has some spice, dark fruits, lots of bitter chocolate, coffee, even got some cherries in it. At times it became quite creamy and had some sweeter chocolate, yes milk chocolatey in certain ways which worked very well with the roasted malts and nuttiness that the rye malt gives. As it warms, the fruity and chocolaty elements come to the fore blending very well with some spicy, boozy, nutty flavours.

Ett år gammel flaske. Myk og søt med litt krydret preg. Lett friskhet og mild bitterhet i avslutningen med mer sjokolade. Skikkelig god! Drukket til taco. (26.08.15)
