Pours a nice pitch black color with a nice head. Aroma you pick up the malt aroma, with a slight hint of chocolate. Not too heavy on the palate, malts with subtle hop, pick up a little more of the chocolate. Very solid, true to form porter.

Zlotta (94) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2014
0,355 l bottle (BB 27/11/2014). Pitch black with a thick, creamy, stable, light brown head. Heavy aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and cocoa powder. Sweetish-bitter, coffee-like taste with dark chocolate and hints of prunes and raisins. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, long, slightly bitter finish. Great porter which leaves nothing to be desired.

sudomorph (707) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a near black/caramel with a two finger, tan head. Aroma has big, slightly sweet, notes of roasted malts, chocolate, and some mild hops. Taste is rich but balanced. Dark chocolate and cocoa with some hop bitterness, and a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly creamy texture and a mildly dry finish. Overall very tasty. Big dark chocolate and cocoa powder. Not as sweet as say the Founders Porter but still tasty.
