Pours clear, very dark reddish brown, almost black. Forms a very nice, light brown head that sits for quite some time and leaves a nice lacing on the sides of the snifter. Aromas on the nose are dominated by spices, pepper and a dry, dusty smokiness and woody aromas too. The alcohol content is amazingly not that noticeable on the aromas. Aromas on the tongue are quite similar to those already mentioned, but with a nice dark tinge to it. The taste is semi-sweet, with a nice somewhat dry finish, and a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin for a hefty and complex porter like this, but in a good way. This beer is excellent; one of the best I’ve had.

PotjeBier (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Almost black color. Short light beige head. Aroma’s: roasted malts, cola. Retronasal there’s lots of chocolate, roasted malt, berries/cherries (dark red fruit), something undefinable ??? Flavor is moderate sweet, chocolate, light mocha. Body is medium to full. Velvetty mouthfeel. Finishes with lots of roast and moderate bitter. Not always a fan of berries/cherries flavor in dark beer but this was well done.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of alcohol soaked raisins, roast malt and dark chocolate. Full body, flavour much as the aroma, fudge and lots of berries.

Grosse mélasse chocolatée et onctueuse qui cache très bien son alcool. Une infusion houblonnée ajoute également de la complexité et une finale fruitée.

500 ml bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a pitch black color with a medium beige head. A dark malty nose, chocolates, anise, some rye. The flavor is wonderful: dark German rye bread, some chocolate, dark fruit, smoke, spicy at times, loads of bitter dark chocolate. Home run! There is a load of barrel character in this really (is it BA?). Sweet, mellow round flavors. Very good.

On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD. Opaque, near black with a thin light tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, licorice, toffee and rye spiciness. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, charcoal, vanilla, sweet mocha, licorice and pumpernickel. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Storm_Warning (77) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Well this is an incredible beer! The aroma is sweet and spicy, fruity and of chocolate. Pours as a thick black vessel with a cascading yet restrained brown sugar coloured head which dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. Tastes sweet and peppery with full chocolate malt character, smooth earthy hop notes and a lasting rich fruity malt finish. Full bodied with a thick oily texture that makes this like velvet on the tongue. Overall this is a truly decadent beer, rich and smooth and very complex, incredible! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Noir très sombre avec une grande mousse marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié, vanille, chocolat, chêne, seigle et du levure. Le goût est d’abord du chocolat, vanille et chêne. Ensuite, c’est du café et malt torréfie avec une finition d’une amertume moyenne. Un palais un peu onctueux mais avec assez carbonatation que ce n’est pas épais. Super bonne!

Pitch black beer with a pretty solid tan head, leaves some lacing. Complex aroma: chocolate, coffee dark malts. Taste: sweet, slightly smokey alcohol, bitter fenolic Moutfeel: soft, a bit oily, effervescent. Although it appears a bit too sweet in my opinion, still a excellent and well-brewed beer.
