oured from the tap into a pint glass
The color is a dark black with some maroon highlights and about two fingers of foamy brownish head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is roasty with a little dry malt aroma. There is some dark chocolate aroma in the nose that has a coffee roast like aroma too.
The taste is roasted malt and is filled with a nice dry chocolate flavor that sets back a bit to hang with a coffee flavor that mixes with some nice toast burnt flavor.
The feel of this beer is complex but smooth as it goes down with ease and has a silky aftertaste that is more enjoyable then a lot of Porters I have had. This one is one of the better ones.

It has beautiful aroma of dark chocolate and tanned bread’s skin. It’s pitch black, non-transparent, with huge head. I think it’s a little bit over-carbonated. It looks so and gives the mouth feeling as well. Except that, in the mouth it’s super smooth, thick and dense. In taste it’s also chocolate, a bit malty, with dark tanned bread notes. It’s perfectly balanced. Leaves strong, dark and bitter aftertaste. Great porter!

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.
