Swaroga (1619) - Brussels, - NOV 4, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark brown, almost black color with medium tanned head. Nose : chocolate and toffee. Brownie with coffee. Some orange zest. Little cheese. Sip : low to medium body, oily texture. Low carbonation. Sweet with flavors of nuts, black chocolate and some sweet coffee. It ends with a nice aromatic hop notes which is interesting in this kind of brew. Aftertaste is coffee and cocoa balanced into citrus zest hops.

JMCtime (32) - Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Strong coffee flavor with a stiff bitterness. Also has an unpleasant and overpowering metallic flavor. Not awful but there are much better/smoother mocha porters out there.

Poured in a pint glass. Color is a dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is a sweet malted barley with hints of chocolate. The upfront taste is a nicely roasted malt with a chocolate finish. Overall a very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

loubar (138) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
12 oz bottle from BevMo. Dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, a bit of caramel and coffee. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, toasted caramel and coffee grounds. Backed by a resiny hoppiness that comes through as slightly acidic. Medium bodied with a light texture, dry finish and slightly higher than average carbonation. Could have easily been richer but they kept it drinkable. Love the low ABV.

thomasjoberg (42) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Incredibly luring aromas. Very rich, roasted mocha flavours with enough small, sensitive bubbles. All in all this is an excellent beer with a rich coffee taste. Not perfectly full bodied in mouth, a bit watery. But still strong taste... Almost perfect.

tfredvik (1277) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2015
Close to black body with a red tint. A quite large, creamy and rather dense, very long-lived, light-brown head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma of massive chocolate, roasted malt, dark caramel and faint fruits. Strong flavour of dry and bitter chocolate that lasts into the long finish. Also a nice fruity background and hints of ash. Light sweet and moderate to light bitter taste. Mid-bodied, quite dry and with a moderate carbonation. Good stuff.
[35.5 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

Nero55 (824) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown/black with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt sweetness, and light roasted malt. Medium/light body, strong roasted malt, coffee, medium hop bitterness, and dry burnt/astringent malt finish.

yourilevesque (130) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Good looking beer in the glass. Dark brown beer with shades of ruby/tawny port. Nice thick mocha head. Aromas are mocha, dark chocolat. I get a lack of complexity on the nose. Taste and mouthfeel are very narrow. Light body, watery mouthfeel, big lack of complexity again. Enjoyable in it’s own style but not my cup of tea.
