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.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2006
Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. It pours almost black, with a beige head. Mocha and fruityness in the aroma. Nice but lacks complexity. The flavor is chocolate and coffee, once again nice but lacking complexity. A bit thin and one-dimentional, with a dryish finish. It might seem uninteresting from my description, but it’s quite well crafted and I would like to enjoy it again. (060824)

harrisoni (14218) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2005
650ml bottle. Dark brown, black colour, roasted malts, chocolate, slightly grainy feel in the mouth with more tart roasted choc malts on end. Not overly interesting but it does what it says on the tin

MiP (13836) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 5.3%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour. Seems hazy. Small light brown head. The flavour is bready, has a mild coffee note. Low bitterness, it seems, but actually a little unpleasant.

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Bottled, alc. 5.3%
Opaque black, small tanned head. Aromatic hoppy nose, a bit roasted. Medium-bodied, roasted, very pleasant coffee in the finish and aftertaste. For this ABV, excellent porter. (7/4/8/4/16 3.9)
Re-rated, bottled 5.7%
Dark, almost opaque black. Small tan head. Very chocolaty roasted nose with notes of hops. Medium to full-bodied. Starts roasted with cold coffee then has a long burst of hops. Long roasted and hoppy aftertaste. (8/4/8/4/16 4.0)

Oakes (12849) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
Very dark brown colour. Full rich character is chocolatey, a bit nutty. Hop bitterness is moderate, which I find appetizing in a porter. Very full, smooth body. Goes down reaaaaallly easy. Great stuff, an old favourite.
