Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tall tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Medium body, high carbonation, and creamy. Sweet flavor with hints of chocolate and a slight bitterness.

Dark fruits, some caramell, liquorice and chocolate in the aroma. Dark brown beige head. Taste is nutty and chocolatey with hints of vanilla. The bitterness brings some. balance but the roasted maltiness is the main player in the taste. Medium body, creamy average cvarbonation. A really nice porter, among my favourites

Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med en enfingerskrona beiget skum. Doftar vanilj, choklad och rostad malt. Smak av rostat, lite kaffe och en viss sötma av päron. Ingen gigant i gommen, men en välsmakande öl.

Enjoyable delicate soma for this style. Colour a clear dark black beer with a decent cappuccino coloured head that becomes a light topping. Lighter flaps but a clear burnt toffee/light coffee character. Drink again.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
Poured a very dark brown, much lighter than other porters. One- to two-finger light tan frothy head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma nice and strongly of dark chocolate. Taste smoky and a bit sweet. Medium body. Smooth, smoky and with a slightly sweet finish. Very nice.

On draught at roscoes - pours clear dark amber with small off white head. Nose of smoke, grass, and chocolate. Taste is of smoke, coffee, and bitter grass. Very dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljthiessen (358) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle. Lighter colour than most porters - an amber brown. Dark fruits and a touch of coffee in the flavour. Medium body. I usually like my porters a bit darker, but this is flavourful and very nicely balanced. Not outstanding, but nice.

Pours a lighter black with a small head. Aroma is big chocolate, and coffee, nice roasted malts too. Flavor is more subdued than I was hoping for with that lovely aroma. Not nearly as roasted flavor as I expected. Carbonation is nothing special. It’s smooth which is nice, but I was hoping for a richer flavor.
