4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cl bottle served in a white wine glass. Pours blackest of blacks, clean and bright. Moka-colored thick head. Intense aromas of coffe, chicory, leather, black chocolate and herbs. No liquorice present, though. Mouth feels soft, very creamy, elegant. Sheer but balanced bitterness. Very long-lasting finish. Very nice.

355ml bottle. Very dark brown almost black colour with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malts, hint of coffee. Taste of bitter dark chocolate and coffee, some hops in the finish I think, bit of smokiness as well. Smooth and drinkable.
Bottle "best by" date was August ’15 (9 months ago as I write this), still tasted great though, hopefully can get hold of a fresher bottle soon would love to have it again.

Un tripudio dei sapori che ti aspetti di sentire quando bevi una porter. Si va dell’intensità del caffè che senti appena la assaggi, alla liquirizia al cioccolato mediamente persistente alla fine. Un corpo interessante che però mantiene la bevibilitá.

Pours a very dark brown with beige head. Aroma is dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, dark malts, dark fruit, hint of vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, dark coffee, dark fruit, licorice, caramel and vanilla. Decent carbonation. Very tasty and very drinkable.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours dark brown with a tan head and lacing. The label on the bottle is weird and almost made me not want to drink it. The aroma was coffee and chocolate. The taste was coffee, tobacco, smoke, and chocolate. The palate was smooth with the right amount of carbonation. This was a very nice porter.

Too many bottles over too many years. This is as straightforwardly pleasant as it gets -- a top-notch porter that’s balanced, smooth, and chocolatey, and it’s also easy to find and inexpensive. What a beer!

Very smooth for a "robust" porter. Missing some of those smoke and anise flavours you hope for in a robust, but it is definitely decadent and smooth
