Pours dark brown with a mocha head that fades quickly leaving a thin lace. Nice milk chocolate aromas, cocoa nibs and nild coffee. Medium body, low carbonation, toasty, biscuity with just a bit of cocoa bitterness. A bit thin in mid-palate. Easy drinking porter, not so robust...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Le rôti domine l’olfactif. Mélange de chocolat noir et de chocolat au lait. Légers tons de cendre. Noire, opaque. Mousse brune, de bonne épaisseur, très dense et persistante. L’attaque se passe également dans les tons de chocolat et dans les accents de torréfaction. Une légère pointe d’amertume se glisse en finale. Les sucres résiduels donnent des notes légèrement pralinées, une touche de fudge. La texture est moyennement mince. L’alcool est bien camouflé. Un excellent porter. Bien bâti.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Completely opaque black color. Super thick brown 2 finger head that sparkles in the light, lasting 5 minutes and with powerful legs.
Strong aromas and taste of sweet chocolate and sour roasted coffee. Well balanced flavors with some hints of fruits, nuts, and herbal spices.
Creamy full body with some excessive prickly carbonation. Not too bitter nor sweet, good intensified finish, slightly chalky, ending with a smoky toffee like mouth coating.
Overall : Nicely balanced with some nice freshness, warming and fully flavored. Good craft and a joy to drink!

Draught at Saint-Bock. Roasted malt with a chocolate edge, smokey notes, touch of vanilla and licorice, round mouthfeel with a smooth finish. Fairly tasty stuff, classic but solid porter.

So dark brown it is black. Very thin head that disappears quickly. Aromas are lighter than expected, but consist of rum and raisin notes, dark chocolate and roasty malts. Similar tastes, but with the addition of red fruits. Some subtle suggestions of rauchbier. Quite tasty.

It is a perfect porter. The foam is consistent and black colour. The taste are roasted malt and coffee and smocked and the balance between these tastes are perfect. There is a nice sensation in the mouth.

500 ml bottle from St. Nicholas Metro. Pours a very dark brown with moderate-sized mocha head. Aroma is rather roasty with even a touch of smoke with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour is also quite roasty with a hint of smokiness, fairly strong dark chocolate, some espresso and a little sweet caramel. Gently drying finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.
