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

John25 (642) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Dark cola. Coffee aroma with dark chocolate. That taste adds more roasted malt than most porters. Thin, yet creamy mouthfeel. Very good.
