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!

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!

patricks110 (1623) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
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!

500ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light brown head that has decent retention and leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is licorice with hints of roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and herbal bitterness finishing with lots of licorice and a light alcohol. Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation. A very well done porter which is definitely worthy.

50 cL bottle at home. Pours dark brown to pitch black with a medium tanned head. Aroma has licorice, bread, rye, molasses and some alcohol. Taste is quite sweet with a lot of licorice, some molasses, dark chocolate, alchohol and some roasted malts, Medium to full bodied with a soft carbo giving it a velvety texture. A bit too much licorice for me, but nice stuff nonetheless.
