UPDATED: JUL 29, 2011 Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a large light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing with some really nice lacing. The aroma was of a moderate dose of dark roasted malts and a strong leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, a touch toffee and molasses. It tasted lightly bitter-sweet with hints of molasses in the beginning and finished about the same but had a nice coffee presence at the end with flavor lasting only a short time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was dry in texture and medium in body with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice porter with the flavors one would expect form a brew of this style. Definitely a classic brew here...

Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a blackish brown with a thin tan head which lasts. Aromas of roasted malts,dark chocolate with a slight sweetness. Taste is similar with some coffee as well as chocolate with an almost Turkish delight sweet hint. Quite nice.

Like the backpack in Dora the Explorer I say: "Yum yum yum yum yum delicious!" Roasty coffee aroma and solid after taste.

dambor (32) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Pours dark brown, leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma: roasted malts dominate, with some coffee and dark fruit. Taste: medium bodied, which makes the rostaed malts not too dominating. Not too sweet, some coffee in the background. Medium/low carbonation, which is perfect for this beer. A solid, very drinkable porter.

Pours jet black with minimal head. Aroma is muted coffee and chocolate. Flavor is excellent - coffee & cream. Only drawback is a slightly metallic aftertaste. Very, very good.

Sötét gesztenyebarna, lágyan pörkölt malátás, kissé füves színezetű, süteménytésztához hasonló illatokkal rendelkezik, mely telt, gazdag ízek jelenlétét sejteti. Élénk, közepesen testes, az étcsokoládé és karamell keserédes jelenlétével, valamint a komló szénás lecsengésű, lágy aromájával. Letisztult ízjegyek jellemzik, elkülönült és rendszeridegen utóízek nélkül - tökéletesen egyben van a sör. Füstös, pirított aromája még karakteresebbé teszi, anélkül azonban, hogy ízvilága túlságosan is robusztussá válna. Kifinomultsága miatt az egyik legjobb porternek tartom, amit valaha ittam.
