MonsterMagnet (1220) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 Bottle, batch NP-202, bb feb 2016. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma: Dark chocolate, espresso, nuts, somewhat earthy and roasty. Taste: chocolate, licorice, dark fruit, coffee, laurel, toffee with smoke and peat hints. Fairly sweet, with a good balancing bitterness and slightly sour. Smooth, oily moutfeel, a complex, full body and a long lasting bitter chocolate finish with a bit of peat. Everything?s just right. Lovely, lovely, lovely!

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Dark opaque brown almost black with an orange tint and a frothy, brown, disappearing, non-lacy head. Deep smell of roasted malt and smoke, chocolate with butter and sweet dark caramel and toffee. Dark fruits – cherry, plum, prune. Full oily body. Sweet initial taste of caramel and milk chocolate, lots of roast ash and dark chocolate in the middle with a liquorish, fruity finish. From sweet to burnt bitter to sweet again in one sip. It would be amazing with a chocolate mousse. An excellent porter. Deep and delicious.

The head is ok, the body black. It smells sweet. The taste is roasty-sweet, creamy, roasty-bitter. In the aftertaste it is very roasty, very intensiv, chocolate-alcoholic. Very good! I love that one ! 11/13/12/12/10/13

This was a while ago, a bottle from a lovely bottle store in the city centre at Nijmegen. Great service there. I recall drinking a superb beer. Black as the name, with a shaggy russet heat, just like a fruit bat. Lovely aroma of peat, dark berries, cocoa, vanilla, repeating on the flavour, with a nice touch of salty liquorice. It was somewhat oily, but incredibly easy to drink. Much superior to its midnight/imperial sister.

This beer looks realy beautyful in your glass. Brown foamy head and deep dark body. The taste is chocolate and smoked. It is a nice mouth feel and a nice balance in taste.

Flesje 33cl, zwart/bruine kleur met een offwhite schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Een rokerige geur met chocolade en zuidvruchten tonen. De smaak is gebalanceerd met ook weer de smaak van houtskool en hop. Een mooi biertje waar je met elke slok weer wat nieuws ontdekt.

Ik ben dol op IRS en Porters, dit is weer zo'n heerlijk voorbeeld van de laatste. Een bijna zwart bier met cappucinokleurige schuimkraag. Ruikt naar koffie, gebrande mout, hout, chocola. In de smaak kom ik hetzelfde tegen, die bitter-zoet is met een heerlijke lange afdronk. Een heerlijke porter!
