EyeAmBaldman (122) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours dark brown, opaque, with a massive caramel head. Aroma is malted chocolate and coffee with a tad of earthiness. Not as slick or thick on the tongue like I expected. Tastes of dark chocolate and coffee with a nice smooth aftertaste. This is like a stout without the backend bitterness. Excellent porter!

Arnesen (25) - Tromso, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma is revealing distinct dark roasted coffee and chocolate appearance, with a earthiness in the background. Taste is of medium sweetness and gives of a good salty and bitterness in the end that leaves a good feeling for a long time. Texture of the beer is creamy, but not too thick, and the carbonation is lively enough to make this beer a pleasure to drink. Finish is long, perfect! Good balanced beer, thumbs up!

0,5L bottle, BB 08.2016. Pours black with huge tan head. The head stays, very nice lacing. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, fruits, and caramel. Taste is sweet with coffee bitterness, fruits, dark chocolate. Alcohol is really well hidden and is only faint burn. Finish is coffee bitter with some smoke. Overall: really nice sweet and fruity porter, really smooth for the ABV.

Bottle at home (batch #1043, 08-10-13). Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, and hops. Taste of roasted, almost burned, malts, some hops, long lasting smoky to burned aftertaste. Drinkable, but a bit too burned for my taste, definitely not my favorite.
