It has a beautiful aroma of roast grain, coffee and biscuit with just a hint of aromatic hop with a full bodied flavour developed form seven different malts giving a richness unseen in Irish STOUT, complex caramel/biscuity, with roast grain and Mocca coffee flavour in a suitable floral hop finished by a just enough bitterness to refresh the palate.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, - OCT 29, 2007
330ml bottle (Porterhouse, Dublin) Dark, with ruby tints, no head. Good grainy aroma, some mocha hints. A bit too carbinated. Slightly watery - more a porter than a stout. Satisfying but not exceptional brew.

Botella verde de 330ml. Vaso Nonic. Brota con color marrón muy oscuro y coronada por una capa bronceada que se disipa con rapidez. Aromas torrefactos y de café con trazos agrios. Sabores de levadura y algo avinados. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada/alta. La textura cremosa se torna aguada. En el intermedio, amargor floral bastante contundente, matices de regaliz, leve toque tartárico y notas de bacón quemado. Final amargo y seco. Retrogusto reseco con recuerdos de grano de café. 330ml green bottle. Nonic glass. Pours very dark brown in color, headed by quickly dissipated & tan crown. Roasted, coffee aromas & sour hues. Yeasty, vinious-like flavors. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Creamy to watery texture. Quite sharp floral bitterness, hints of licorice, slight sour touch & roasted bacon notes in the middle. Dry bitter finish. Dried aftertaste with coffee grain memories.

Foffern (1685) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle at restaurant in Brussels. Pours a dark brown to black colour with a small beige head. Pretty sweet aroma of chocolate, leather, and some licorice and lactose. Flavours of roasted malt, coffee, leather and dark wood. Has a slick but surprisingly thin mouthfeel, and a very light bitterness. The aroma is good but disappoints from the first sip. Way too thin on the palate.
