Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The pour yields a ruby-tinted dark cola color. The thinnest of beige heads rest on top. The aroma is ripe with fresh breads, roasted malts, cocoa beans, dirt. The mouth is a little thin for my liking. There needs to be a bit more depth to this I think. The bubbles are too prominent. There is a lot of chocolate in this beer. Definitely the main player here. Chocolate malt, bitter coffee, grounds, and a bit of alcohol on the back end. This beer is simple and doesn’t bring much complexity, but that’s okay.

minihame2 (436) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Pours black, slightly translucent against light with a little tan head. Malty aroma, not too strong, some oats as well. Taste starts very easy, then ends with a bitter finish with a lingering aftertaste. Tastes pretty much like what you’d expect from your typical porter. Mouthfeel is somewhat light but still smooth and creamy with easy carbonation. Decent porter but there are plenty of better ones out there.
