shaynsawchuk (359) - Mississauga, Ontario, - DEC 27, 2012
500 mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a thick brown head, lots of lacing to be had. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, strong coffee and anise. A touch of sweet with a bit of a bitter hop finish. Super smooth and creamy, full on the palate. A textbook porter.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - thank you so much, for it, Kenni! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste of malt, roasted barley, nuts, torf, chocolate, coffee and dark berries. Dry finish with some nice and gentle roast aromas. Enjoyed it.

Pitch Black. Totalnie nieprzejrzyste. Piana ładna aczkolwiek dość szybko uległa redukcji, ładnie oblepia szkło. W aromacie palona kawa i czekolada, zarazem kwasek czuć od kawy. W smaku kremowe ale bez nadmiaru ciała, średnio w stronę wysokiego wysycenia.

Pours a dark brown, looks black in the glass. Large fluffy tanned head. Aroma is rich malts and subtle roast. Nuts, almonds and a sweet bready note, hints of chocolate as well. Taste is well balanced, malt-driven but perfectly rounded with the bitter hops. Medium body and carbonation.

Karol (506) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 14, 2014
Bottled. Overall watery for my taste with a low body. Nice porter characteristics no doubt. Some tasty sweet fruit backbone. Bitter chocolate finish. Alcohol warming. Pretty good.

Ok. Aroma Is Charcoal. Dark black pour, slightly creamy looking head. Taste is Coffee, Ash. Disappointing. A bit distracted while drinking, so maybe have to try again in future.

czar (3776) - 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.
