4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: alcohol up front, then chocolate.
Appearance: black, dark, can’t see thought it at all. Pretty head, good lacing on glass.
Taste: Sour up front, then bitter. The chocolate & coffee shows up last and coffee stays on the palate.
Overall: stronger than it tastes...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge beige head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body. Cold coffee and earthy vanilla aroma with chocolatey notes. Sweet earthy coffee taste with wooden bubblegum notes. Full-bodied. Mild, flat, smooth mouthfeel. Sweet earthy wooden coffee aftertaste with burnt toast notes. Artificial, overly burnt, overly sweet mess. Will not buy again. (0.65l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this in my basement for a month, standing upright, undisturbed so i was siprised that it exploded when i opened it as if it gad been freshly shuck. The aroma while i was xleaning up yhe kitchen counter/floor was fantastic. Roasty and sweet smelling with coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Black pour with a nice thick light brown head. Taste follows nose. More sweet than roasty, slight bitterness note towards finish. Palate is soft and creamy, not heavy at all while still offering good body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown, opaque, with a thick two-finger tan head with very nice lace. Strong coffee aromas with hints of chocolate and malts. Excellent bittersweet dark chocolate flavor with rich roasted coffee. Full body, gentle carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel and a wonderful balance of chocolate and coffee in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.65 bottle. Dark brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, and dark chocolate. The taste generally follows the same directives with perhaps tiny alterations as to the proportions. A full body, a thick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is also relatively malty but it does feature some unexpected, yeasty flavors. Overall this is a good beer, worth retrying.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pullotettu 13-07-2015. Musta väri, iso kuohuva viipyvä vaahto. Tuoksu tuttu palanut, täyteläinen, raikkaahko. Suutuntuma vetinen, kuohuva, suklainen, nopea, intensiivinen kaakaoaromi jää taustalle. Jotain jää uupumaan, portterin kaipuuta kaiketi. Mutta aika kiva kuitenkin.
