czar (4259) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
(small gusher) pours unclear very dark brown with a creamy tall frothy light beige head, good retention and lacing - almost abnormal. roastiness-plenty, some burnt malts, slightly ashy, ground coffee - roasted acidity, raisins and chewy dark red fruits, very spicy too - coriander and other stuff, hint of wood and vanilla. lively and foamy carbonation - disturbing, light to medium body, medium long bitter coffee-spicy-piney finish. bottle conditioning issue. still.. very nice stuff.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Medium creamy brown head which fades quickly. Good lacing. Solid black body. Aroma is alcohol, dark fruits, coffee, cocoa and malt. Some spiciness as well. Mostly sweet on the tongue with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Roasted malt. Feels a little watery throughout the bottle

Drank from a bottle at a bar. Strong but smooth porter. There’s maybe some coffee in the taste.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Brown 0,5L bottle abv7%, beige head, knitwork of lacings, about black body. Scents of cocoa, mocca coffee, leather, liquorice, dried apple, some grassy fresh stuff. Tastes dark chocolate malts, mocca juice, notes of sweet liquorice, cocoa cream. Slightly flourish on palate, nice body, smooth carbonation. Finishes still with chocolate malts, dried fruity notes, lingering. This drink goes well as evening sipper, with dark confectionery, cheese, or even as replacement for red wine to red meat dishes. Easy to enjoy overall. #1055 TAP231013 BBF23oct16 b@vinmonopolet, tasted@home.

tomekk1978 (426) - POLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa. Początkowo obfita, dość szybko opada, ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat: ciemne słody, kawa, czekolada gorzka, owoce, lekki chmiel. Smak: na początku słodowa i owocowa słodycz oraz czekolada. Po chwili następuje jednak wytrawna palona i kakwowa kontra. Z pewnością ciekawe piwo, jedynie nieco zbyt wytrawne na końcu.
