Bottle. A black beer with a small tan head. Coffee made over campfire vibes at first in aroma. Also some chocolate later on. Burnt wood, licorice and bitter cocoa notes in taste. Roasted dark malty and ashy finish. Takes a turn between sweet and bitter this one. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from de Mitra in Gorinchem. The beer is nearly black colored and pours a red/brown sticky head, with a lot of carbonation. It looks really beautiful in your glass. The aroma is powerfull with tones of roasted and smoked malts, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste is bittersweet with the tones from the aroma. The finish is full bodied, bitter and a little smokey. Wonderfull beer, nothing else to say.

Bottle 33cl. Pitchblack beer with a creamy beige layer of foam. Aroma of smoke, wood, coffee, pure chocolate and metal. The taste is bitter, coffee, and dark chocolate. The aftertaste is long with a lingering bitterness. All the way through the beer there is also a smoky taste. Nice taste. The mouthfeel is almost perfect. Flat to medium carbonation with an almost soft body (just slightly watery). Really nice beer!

Thanks to Silvija, bottle from NL.
Excellent porter, I would say peated porter. Pours reddish black with tan beige medium top, medium lasing lasting well. Aroma- dominant peated malt, roasted malt, even some burnt hints, and it continues yeasty, sweet. Maybe some heavy dark chocolate tones. Nice, bitter and sweet taste, thick body, lovely balanced brew with enough character.
