50cl bottle from Discount. Pours dark black with a chocolate milk head leaving nice lacing coating more than half the glass. Secret appears to be fairly continual carbonation; many fine bubbles throughout the duration of the glass. Aroma has caramel and coffee with nice roasty malts. Taste follows, along with some dark fruit hints. Quite smooth. Finishes sweet with bitterness back, about medium length. A nice solid porter.

Pours a solid black with a brown head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of dark chocolate toasty malt. The flavor is dark chocolate and some toast and dark fruit at the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick black colored, small non lasting tan head. Aroma is kinda sweet, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice, some roasted malt and coffee. Taste is moderate+ sweetness, bit toffee, chocolate, dark fruits and licorice, strong roasted and coffee dry bitterish finish with some sweetness and lasting aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, low+ carbonation, quite thick and creamy. Very good, would be excellent if only a bit less sweet.

500 ml bottle brewed 08.05.14, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark brown body, with a big, frothy, rocky, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, wood, dark fruits, some smoke.
Tastes delicious, with about the same aromas, wonderful espresso, with slight ash notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty, quite dry, with coffee, wood, cocoa.

Really tasty. Wonderful espresso notes, strong, but very smooth to drink. Completely worth the ratings, one of the best Porters I’ve had so far!
