Pitch black color with large brown head. The aromas is of chocolate, sweet vanilla, toffee and coffee. The flavors are full of roasted malt, burnt sugar and caramel. And a dry bitter finish.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from Cunningham, thanks! Chocolate, caramel, light roast, mineral-earthy notes and a whiff of hops. In this ordr of appearance. Pleasant, though nothiong special. It gets more interesting in the taste, where an initial, soft wave of ground cocoa finishes light roasted/tart, which is balanced by notes of chocolate liqeur as the beer warms. Very nice, sessionable brew.

tfredvik (1208) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Close to black body with hints of red. Creamy, long-lived, light-brown head that reduces to a thin layer. Strong, dry, heavy malty and burnt aroma of ash and tobacco. Also faint fruits, black currant, chocolate, coffee and leather. Strong, burnt and ashy flavour profile with accompanying tobacco. Some sweet fruits, black currant and coffee in the back. Light-bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation. A decent porter, but maybe a bit ashy and burnt for the style?
[50 cl bottle, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg, Sweden]

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
Flaske hos Einar (takk til Sara!): flott porterutseende - svart og med beige skum som varer. Fint balansert aroma og smak med kaffe, mørke lett syrlige bær og et snev av røyk, selv om røykmalt ikke står nevnt i maltprofilen. Lett munnfølelse og noe vandig ettersmak. Ok porter men ingen højdare.

Theydon_Bois (9977) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Keg at the Bishops Arms, Park Avenue, Goteborg 21/03/14. Black with a good sized tan covering. Nose is roast malt, biscuit, cardboard, earthy cocoa. Taste comprises light roast, touch of cocoa, papery tones, dark fruit ring. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Pretty so so porter, lacks depth.

Gurthnar (2179) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Aroma lightly fruity, otherwise roasted malts. Light wheat. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is mostly fruity, with only light roastiness, taking over mostly in the finish. Not exactly enchanting, but OK beer. A bit too thin bodied.
