12 fl oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy, rocky and slowly collapsing tan head. Aroma is smooth coffee, chocolate and light floral to fruity hoppy. Bitter and light fruity flavoured. Distinct roasted malt flavoured, chocolate and coffee herbal and slight acidic flavour swept through. Nice full malt flavoured finish with a lingering roasted note and good hops fruit and bitter flavour counterbalance.

This beer has a great aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. The color is black with a red glow and a fine brown head. The flavor is thin in the beginning, but then You are hit by: malt, roasted bread, chocolate, wood, and coffee bitterness. A lovely flavor except for the weak start.

First rating 2002-02-25:
Brown-black. Coffee and grape aroma. Bitter, but a bit on the thin side. At least that is what I have written in my notes, but after reading others note on this I guess I should get back and re-rate it.

Re-rate 2002-10-25: Funny, I’d all forgotten this rating, but came to nearly exactly the same conclusion. Almost black with rich head. Light coffee nose. Some crystal malt profile. Rather sweet.

Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice, fresh and interesting, despite the age of the bottle, with black olives and chocolate, light vanilla; hops. The body is lean, there is a good chocolate flavor, with a bit too much roasted malt for my taste; in the final there are some roasted nuts too, quite dry final, almost harsh burnt character. Good enough.
Brown color. Some roasted malt aroma, with some hidden hops. Quite good Stout, with a one dimensional roasted malt character.

22nd October 2008. Opaque black beer with just a thin tan head. Smooth and slightly sour/tangy porter. Nicely put together this beer, a little milk chocolate in the mid with a well balanced bitterish coffee undertone that dominates the finish. Very drinkable.
