Pours dark with a thin head, deep rich burnt coffee and malt flavours. Strong taste but not a lot of alcohol. I liked it.

EdInSaltLake (584) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Molasses/brown sugar sweet, and caramel malt, and a stone fruit aroma and flavor. Also some cocoa and biscuit malt flavor--giving it some dryness, then finishing sweeter.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 29, 2014
Olajos, fekete színű főzet bézs színű habbal és egy tejeskávés, pörkölt és élesztős aromával, mely egy égetett cukros, karamellás, vaníliás színezetű ízben folytatódik, ahol a pörkölt malátás, határozottan élesztős jelleg és az intenzív, kávés zamatok teszik teljessé ezt az egyébként igen harmonikus, sallangmentes ízvilágot.

Bottle from a Total Wine. Pours dark reddish brown with small tan head. Aroma is breast with faint chocolate. Taste is rather pedestrian with a slight burnt finish. Mouthfeel is watery. Overall pretty disappointing.

KoNrRiI (432) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2014
0.55 bottle. Pitch black color and a small, brownish head. Aroma of dark malts, some toast, and a touch of licorice. Taste is rather delicate for a porter. mostly malty with loads of bread, some dough, and chocolate. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish closely follows the taste and does not introduce any new smacks. Overall the beer is pretty good; as a side note - drinking it alongside the same brewery’s splendid imperial stout might have influenced the rating.

TXBadger (1214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a light brown color almost clear, with tan head. Cocoa and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not much else. Somewhat lacking in the dimensions.

fles van Burg Bieren, Ermelo. Start van het WK2014 Brazilië-Kroatië. schenkt zwart, ondoorzichtig met schuimige bruine kraag. aroma van koffie, chocolade, zoetig. de smaken zijn matig zoet, licht bitter, redelijke moutigheid (geroosterd en gebrande mouten), medium body, glad van textuur, lage co2, afdronk zoetig en koffie droog. het is een mooie lichte typische Engelse Porter, lekkere gebalanceerde smaken van volmoutigheid, chocolade koffie gecombineerd met een goed droog mondgevoel.mooi laag alcoholpercentage van 5%. ja goede keuze dit bier !

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark red to brown in the light, and the head almost completely fades. Smells of coffee with hints of chocolate. Taste is good but it’s slightly more carbonated than I would have liked.

Appearance is deep brown, almost black, with a tan foam cap. Aroma is molasses, toffee, burnt sugar. Slight earthiness. Taste is light roasty malt, rich caramel, chocolate, molasses. Mouthfeel is relatively light, not much body, with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a slight astringency and bitterness, leaving a roasted malt taste on the tongue
