3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle @ Melkebaren. Black body with a rather small, but stable beige head. Strong, good aroma of roasted malt, expresso coffee, mocha and some dry fruit. Nice, strong flavor as well, mostly the same ingredients as found in the aroma, medium sweet, nicely roasted dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, medium bitterness with a hint of salt liquorice. Nice balanced and impressive complexity for such low ABV. Fine body and long, good aftertaste. Impressive all the way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black beer, creamy beige head. Nose is dark chocolate, burned notes, malt, licorice. Flavor is bitter-roasty, malts, acidic touches. Bitter finish with citrus tones. The roasty bitterness is thick, almost chewy. Solid stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Here’s one I’d go back to often if it weren’t for the hefty price tag. Complex aroma and flavor of malted chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, and slight smoke and licorice. There’s a slight twangy creaminess that adds to the body but takes away just a touch from the still great aroma and flavor. Best Porterhouse I’ve had. Why couldn’t the oyster stout be like this?"

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle (if I recall correctly), consumed on 9-15-14. Scents of chocolate, plum, chocolate-covered raisin, chocolate-covered cherry, Playdough, cookie dough, bran muffin, and orange. Smells good and interesting. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of tan head. Roasted malt flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, Playdough, and char. Slightly artificial taste. Tarry finish and aftertaste. Roasted bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively and frothy in the palate. Overall, interesting and aromatic but pulled down by the seemingly artificial element in aroma and flavor. Better than I expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33L bottle, BB 29.07.15. Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, roast, chocolate. Flavor is roast, coffee, licorice, some sour notes. Finish is very long roasted dry and coffee bitter with some smokiness and nutiness. Overall: well made brew, but I prefer my stouts sweeter.

Draught, opaque dark brown to black colour, medium long lasting, creamy head, aroma of coffee and strong roasted malt with some dirt and a hint of seaweed, flavour of coffee nuts and peanuts with some smokiness in the back and something sea salty like. Very good traditional stout.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Das Bier hat ein kräftiges Röstaroma mit Anklängen von Kaffee, Beerenfrüchten und sanftem Räuchergeruch. Die Schaumkrone steht wie Schlagsahne. Geschmack dann relativ bitter, adstringierend. Nachgeschmack von Räucherschinken.

(cask, at Porterhouse, Temple Bar) Geruch eher neutral, schade. Geschmack dann kräftiger, mit Aschenbecher.
