3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Hells yea! This is megaballs deep. Smellz pretty good but his one is all about making my tongue turgid. Almost an impy stout. Creamu with the perfect amount of carbonation, soft and fat in the mouth is easier to take than hard and stiff. Some berry fruit that is not buried by the slightly bitter chocolate, solid roasted goodness, backend sweetness, brown sugar. Salivating lots. Super duper good! Faint anise and spots of ashtray. Just wonderful. Usually I’m all about aroma but not this time. Not even bothering. This tastes excellent and worth the extra skrilla.
