Bottle. Pours a near black color with a smallish light brown head. I get some of the grains in the nose, but some roasting and chocolate really is forward in the nose. Taste is quite similar, with a hint of sweetness up front but a tad bit of bitterness on the back end. Really smooth and easy drink. I like it muchly.

You can really taste and smell that smoked rye. Hops and yeast are awesome. Has a slight Belgium character in the finish. Cracked rye. Chocolate, toasty, bitter and sharp. Very little sweetness if at all. Must try.

Cybercat (3229) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Comes out of the bottle a deep, warm sable with a very thick tan head that sticks around for a bit and leaves some generous lacing. The sample I got fizzed quite a bit, but at least I didn’t get a miniature Old Faithful the way I have on occasion. Rich, smoky aroma has notes of molasses, quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee. Lip-smacking flavor fills the mouth with roast malt, quality coffee, caramel, wood, licorice and hops plus a noticeable alcohol nip. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has good fizz and leaves a slightly sweet, slightly hop bitter, smoky and tingly finish. The offspring of Terrapin and Nogne-O is a beautiful child!

Black and creamy. Sweet and mellow. The vanilla feel is wild! Great beer

Wischylini (125) - Grimstad, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2013
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.

This is an excellent beer. Thick and a bit smoky, it has a chewy dark chocolate flavor to it. A little milky flavors to it. Pretty good.

Duntoyou (100) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2012
Søtlig aroma. Deilig. Veldig glad i søtlig aroma i mørke øl. Fargen er mørkebrun. Gylden kobber når jeg holder lyset bak. Skinner litt igjennom på sidene, fin munnfølelse. Fløte. Godt balansert smak. En porter i absolutt toppklasse

mcnealc31 (249) - Elida, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Completely opaque with a dark, thin head. Rather inviting aroma of rye, chocolate, and dark fruit. Extremely smooth and complex. Layer upon layer of flavor. Rye and chocolate first, then figs, currants, charred wood, and burnt marshmallows. There is a hint of sweetness followed by a lasting chalky finish. Deceptive 9% ABV. This is outstanding. Get it.

50 cl. courtesy of Man-ki. Thx! Shared by 3. Bottled on 10.02.2012. Pours black with basically no head. Smells of rye bread, spices, chocolate, rum pie, touch coffee, some pleasant alcohol presence and deeply toasted wood. Taste of rye bread, spices, molasses, light warming / boozy nature, thick, some bitterness in the back, bitter roast,… Little carb. very thick cold coffee feel. Very nice. These guys continue being very solid to say the least.
