Tried at SIB. Like many beers, this one needs to warm a little before you’re able to get the full effect of the taste. Lots of smooth chocolate with a little coffee and moderate roast. Pretty tasty porter...would definitely have again.

Aroma of some roasted malts with chocolate. Kind of sweet, roasted malts again with an overall dry feeling.

Nice opaque black color with medium brown, small head and little lacing. Aroma is big, lots of fruit and malt. Flavor is fantastic. Very creamy and malty with some fruit notes as soon as it hits my tongue. nice cocoa finish. Definitely one of the top porters.

Black with brown heads: smells like chocolate covered raosted nuts. Light coffee in the taste, a little thinner than expected yet a syruppy finish. Thanks hopscotch.

khytre (73) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2007
Black, not to big head, smells like a cold cup of mocca. Bitter start, very complex mixture of bitter mint chocolate and licorice. You can very easily add different kinds of chocolate, licorice and sweet desserts to this. Another powerpack of complex taste from NØ.

Dorwart (2522) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Good sized frothy milky brown head of very fine and dense bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with plenty of chocolate, roasted grains, chocolate covered cherries and a hint of smoke. Color is essentially black. Rich roasty flavor. Full bodied and full of flavor. Dark bittersweet chocolate, coffee, some licorice and milk late swallow. Very easy drinking. Finishes creamy smooth and roasty. Slight lingering bitterness. A great porter!

750 at the Seattle International Beerfest. Pours deep black with thin tan head. Big roasty ashy and coffee nose. Bold attack with firm carb, medium body, forward coffee roast and ash mid palate. Clean finish. Wonderful stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2007 Bottle from Quake1028, which was a BONUS! Thanks! Pours black with a brown creamy retentive head. Roasty and chocolately aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor of burnt malts, coffee, and chocolate. Very bitter and dry finish, with some sourness and nutshell flavors at colder temps, and more expresso/ coffee grounds when warm. This is much bettter at cellar to room temperature. This may be a porter in body, but the robustness dances very close to stout territory. Overall, not too bad. I must admit that I was expecting this to be much better.
