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.

the aroma of caramel, toast, dried fruits and spicy grasses... the taste of caramel, toast and chocolate with some notes of coffee, dark fruits and spices... the aftertaste is sweet, bitter, spicy and dry...

koshack (541) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Piana drobna, brązowa, bardzo trwała. Ładnie koronkuje. W aromacie dość wytrawne. Pachnie śliwkami i trochę deserowa czekoladą. Lekkie nuty chmielu, trochę ziołowe. W całości aromatu dają lekko likierowy aromat. W smaku znów czekolada, dość wytrawna, choć czuć trochę słodkich nut. W odczuciu nie jest bardzo pełne mimo tego ekstraktu. Lekko zaznaczony alkohol, trochę drapie w przełyku.

VsXsV (2772) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, light chocolate, light ash, toast, dried fruit, raw sugar and bread. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate, licorice and biscuit. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent if a bit roasted for the style.

500ml bottle. Pours thick and impenetrable black with a thick tan head. Dried fruit aroma, taste is coffee and dried fruit. Didn’t quite live up to the hype but very good
