4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Blackish slightly viscous pour with a finely beaded moussy brown head.
Bitter dark chocolate coffee and dried dates and figs in the note along with some bready notes
Taste: A very warm inviting rich blend of dark cocoa, espresso like notes dark dried fruits and some nutty flavors enveloped in a lightly silky package stopped from being too viscous with just a touch of chalkiness
Overall: What a wonderful beer - I just love the silky smooth textural component enveloping a lot of classic porter like notes. The best part being the dark malt flavors compliment and not dominate each other

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(50 cl bottle from Heinemann Gardermoen; Batch #1093D; Bottled on December 19th 2013; BBD: December 19th 2016) Pours black with two finger, tan head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is subtly toasted with herbal hop notes. Smooth, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a lingering, dry finish. Flavour is really smooth and mostly toasted malt with connotations of drinking liquid chocolate or coffee. Very pleasant.

Pyszny porter, nie ma co sie przygladac i pod swiatlo sprawdzac. Bo to czern nieprzepuszczajaca promieni, wielka ciemno bezowa piana wyrasta jak drozdze w piekarniku. Jest srednio trwala. Alkoholu sie nie wyczuwa, ale za to wspaniale smakowalo z Belgijskimi truflami. Sporo akcentow czekolady gorzkiej, deserowej. Troche kakao, bardzo polecam bo to dobry i uczciwy porter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
19 April 2014. Purchased from Gooden in Taipei. Opaque brown-black with fine beige head and lots of lacing. Smells strongly of coffee with some malt and ripe fruit and smoke in the background. Tastes more acidic than the aroma, burnt roasted malts with some very bitter hop and coffee to balance. Body is a bit watery but has nice fizzy carbonation. A great porter.

Fantastic... There are red fruits over a roasted coffee base. It’s like a choco fruit cake. Cake, fruit, then cake again. Amazing

Bottle. Aroma smoke, roasted, alcohol. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is malt-centered, but there is decent supporting bitterness. Smoked, chocolate, light light coffee. Overall smooth mouthfeel, no astringency, very easy drinking. Very good beer, long roasted finish.

Bortimot svart farge med beige skum. Lukter kaffe, karamell og svisker. Fyldig og nydelig i munnfølelse. Kaffe og fruktigheten kommer godt fram i smaken. Fin bitter avslutning. En meget god porter.
