UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 3/6/05:Maybe I was delirious. I tried a Alpha Klaus before this one and the Sinebrychoff (koff or whatever it is) just floored me. What a dream of a porter. Cellar Temp. Black with a brown head, pours like motor oil. Great aroma of chocolate and dates. Light but creamy body avoiding the “isn’t this a stout, pitfall”. Wonderful complexity in the flavor profile. At this point my notes drift into incoherent babble of pure bliss. I returned to note that as and added bonus there are interesting and equally delightful changes as the beer warms. Bravo! 3/27/05 Rerate Was not delerious on first rating. This is one of the best beers I have ever had.

Poured a deep mohagony to black fluffy brown head. A sweet and grass like aroma was present with a touch of roast malt. Flavor was sweet with noticable notes of molases and honey backed up by dark fruit..

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a deep black liquid that light can not penetrate with a small amount of dark caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma is of a sweet molasses with alcohol and a small cherry character. Flavor is a somewhat dry cherry and slight roasted coffee with a small, dry ending. Nothing to really hate, but nothing to really love, either. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tap into half pint. Black, thin espresso foam color head. Nose mostly of Vettel and dark malt.In the mouth immediate sour note, like a Flemish sour. Hops mid way, and finishes with a more traditional dry roast. Not a typical porter by any means but really interesting and multilayered.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at Deep Ellum, body is a pure black with a thin creamy tan head. There is a subtle malty aroma with notes of espresso, peat and a bit of dusty smoke. Flavors of smokey rich coffee and hot choco dominate the pallate with notes of vanilla, honey and dry grass and dried dark fruits. The pure black body goes down with a thin silky mouthfeel with little or no alcohol soak. Really a nice balanced beer with some complex flavors poking around.

begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle. Very dark, burnt color. thick milk chocolate colored foam. Sweet aroma with syrup and malts. Tastes malts, smoke and chocolate. Not so roasted as appearance and aroma would hint. Feels like melted butter in mouth: oily and runny. Great beer!

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Aroma is of candied malts, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is more of this, with some hint of vanilla....all very well balanced. No burn whatsoever. A smooth, slick finish with a roasted finish. A really fantastic porter. Smooooooth.

Another fine porter. Not quite up to standards of Londons or Carnegie, but still a top notch example.
