UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Dark black with red highlights and a very slight tan head. Very rich and tasty coffee, chocolate and burnt malt aroma. The flavor is extremely full of toasted malts, coffee and has a nice chocolate finish to it. Extremely smooth, easy to drink and quite delicious. Very nice sweet malt aftertaste. Am definitely going to buy this one again.

Delicious dark chocolate aroma. No head/no lacing. Pours a thin, dark brown. Heavy malt, chocolate, and coffee notes with the perfect touch of bitterness. Body is medium with a bitter coffee and cocoa aftertaste that lingers perhaps a bit too long. Quite good overall though - would buy again.

Bottled. Maybe a bad bottle! Very nice aroma and appearance, however the after taste of this beer made me feel I just licked the ash tray!!!

Ah, the sweet dry chocolate amlt greets my nose even as it pors.Thick creany tan head, the is not moving. mmmmm, the taste is roasted almost burnt coffe, with some bittering at the end. And the carbination is good, and the hops wisp up to the nose as the taste lingers long. This is an excellent porter.

Ah, the lovely expresso-flourless chocolate cake dry aroma greets me. This bodes well. A tight, tan, long lasting head. Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil. Gobs of roasted malt and chocolate flavor in a great body with fine carbonation. Finishes dry and leaves the dusty roast of dry coffee grounds behind. I would have liked a little chocolate milk flavor thrown in there, but this is very nice.

2005 Bottle. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with hints of vanilla and oaky bitterness. Smooth beginning with a nice flavors roasted caramel malts and coffee undertones. This slightly sweet smoothness is complimented with a bitter-hoppy finish. Definiterly still tasting vanilla. The base is alittle watery for my liking...would be amazing if it was unfiltered.

Pours jet black with a thin tan head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is sweet roasted caramel malt and black coffee with a nose that is tart and fruity hop that makes you salivate just thinking about the tartness. Plums and honey also come through in the aroma. The flavor is bitterly sweet dark roasted coffee with a hoppiness on the end. The palate is dark and dry with a fizzy and tingling mouthfeel. Some thick lacing.
