My bottle had 5% abv. Black body and appealing in general. Balanced dark malts, roasty, nutty. Earthy finish, better than expected. Not so dry, but that’s actually nice for the mouthfeel. Well made brew! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

jamaty (1355) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra, con espuma ocre, escasa para una stout. Aroma a chocolate y caramelo. En boca agradable y muy cremosa. Muy balanceada con rico sabor acaramelado, malta tostada, y notas de chocolate negro en el postgusto, muy amargo. Muy buena.

Klare dunkel orangebraune Farbe, fngerbreite leicht beige Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr schokoladig, röstmalzig, Kaffee. Geschmack bitter schokoladig, Kaffee, dann wird es wässriger, dennoch gut!

JStax (3827) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Draft pour at the source. The beer is a darker brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has some chocolate, but is very faint. Taste doesnt have much more. Very subtle beer. Creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

mcberko (9754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Porterhouse, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Nose reveals notes of light dry toasted malt. Flavour is smooth and dry, with toasted malt. This gets its character mostly from the nitro. Not a whole lot of flavour but it’s quite smooth. Decent.

Gangstergafje (311) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2015
Dark ruby red color wit a creamy soft white foam. The smell is not so special. A faint smell of beer, hardly any smell at al. The taste is nice. In the front of the mouth there isn’t much going on. Just like water. But on the back of the beer really comes to life! Roasted hops accompanied by caramel. Really nice.

Draught. Dark brown with a reddish tint with large creamy tan head, slight coffee aroma, thin body, medium carbonation, balanced roasted malt taste, longish finish. Quite a nice porter, simple but good.
