No head and all almost. Coffee and some roasted flavor, a little tiny bit of sourness. Smooth as silk very easy to drink for the strength and bigness. Good. Serving:Bottle

Abrakarl (281) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Very nice porter with strong cola aroma. Also some coffee. A bit smokey too. Solid and good beer. Probably Norways best brewery. Not cheap either. This one was about 11$ in Norway.

matis (82) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Draught. Soft notes of nuts and chocolate. Porter notes and rye recognizable but generally a bit flat taste. Velvety and oily texture, well hidden alco. Nice for beginning imperial porter road.

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle - 500ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Opaque black body with a thin beige foamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with woody, licorice, chocolate, and spicy hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries oaky, yeasty, vanilla, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Fantastic!

TheCametron (1751) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours Black with a small Brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cafe creme. Roasty sweet flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice. Rye always seems to gice a slightly unusual element to dark beers. Like fennel seeds in a loaf of bread.

RumRunner101 (745) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Black pour with tan head. Intense roasted nose with some spice and dark berries. Flavour has burnt chocolate, anise and a big spicy finish with alcohol warmth. Nice.
