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 (406) - 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.

500ml black bottle. Unfiltered. Christmas gift from my son. He chose well, and put together a nice package. This is a lovely easy drinking and tasty beer. I enjoyed every drop and would like more.

EyeAmBaldman (187) - 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 (32) - 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!

martjoobolut (555) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 2, 2014
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.
