Watery and bitter. Unmistakably a porter but that’s the best I can say for it.

Deliciousness! Fairly average deep brown pour w/ a foamy head & spotty lacing. The aroma is captivating w/ dark malts, chocolate, & roasted notes. The taste is robust w/ chocolate up front & finishing roasty & slightly bitter. This is a very good & drinkable porter!

Kaatuu lasiin colanruskeana ja reunoilta valoa päästävänä, reilun kaadon ansiosta vaahto on noin kolmen sormen paksuinen. Tuoksussa on hyvin runsaasti paahdettua ruisleipää, joka kääntyy joka limppuiseen suuntaan. Suklaista makeuden ja rasavaisuuden sekoitustakin on reilusti joukossa. Miellyttävä ja simppeli tuoksu. Maku on enemmän suklaan suntaan kääntyvä, vasta jälkimaussa leipäisyys tulee suuhun ja jääkin vahvimpana maiskuteltavaksi. Nyt limppua ei ole kovin paljoa, tai se ainakin on hieman palaneessa muodossa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen prosentteihin verrattuna, hiilihappoisuus on kevyehköä ja humalointia on jonkin verran. Hyvä ja laadukas porter, joka ei kuitenkaan erotu millään erityisominaisuudella massasta.

Hopmaestro (174) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2014
Aroma is as you’d expect from a porter, mild toasty malts with a hint of chocolates. The taste is earthy with a medium body, a laidback hop sting and a dry aftertaste. A decent, clean porter. Perhaps a bit too standard?

firemarshal (175) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge rocky head that lasts impressively. Aroma is roasted nuts, toast, hot chocolate, molasses. Taste is a bit watery with caramel, leather, alcohol, banana, vanilla, coffee and milk chocolate. Overall pretty good stuff.

Nice overall porter. Dark beer with a tan head. I really tasted some roasted malts. Thought it was creamy and full bodied.

Nice rich malty goodness. Straightforward porter - chocolate coffee roasty with a nice hoppy balance.

Solid porter with dark Malta, medium hop bitterness. A touch of nuts, caramel and toast. Greasy for a night cap ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark cola. Coffee aroma with dark chocolate. That taste adds more roasted malt than most porters. Thin, yet creamy mouthfeel. Very good.
