Sweet chocolate roastiness in the nose. Opaque black with a ruby glow around the edges of the glass. Rich creamy mouthfeel with a mineral bitterness on the finish. Notes of milk chocolate, caramel, and hint coffee. Cheers!

I might have drank too many porters lately - this one kinda misses the mark. Decent coffee flavor, but has a nasty sour aftertaste. I will have to try this again sometime.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice hoppy porter with chocolate and coffee notes.

StueyD (1466) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
A very dark reddish brown coloured beer with a thick latte coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, coffee, chocolate and nutty, plus a hint of ripe red fruits. Medium dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A bitter sweet roasted malt taste, burnt sugar, strong espresso coffee, dark chocolate, and nutty, then the sweeter ripened red fruit flavour comes through towards the end. The finish is bitter sweet and lengthy. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

Pours a deep dark brown from a bottle with a khaki head. Aroma of coffee, a little chocolate, flavor similar with some burnt notes. Good beer.

tfontana (180) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow NH. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate nibs and hint of coffee. Appearance is opaque black with minimal light brown head, with fair foamy lacing. Taste is balanced moderately sweet chocolatey flavor with moderately bitter coffee flavor. Palate is medium bodied with medium, slightly slick texture, soft carbonation and nice, long finish like chocolate covered espresso beans. Overall, really nice all around. Nitpicking, head could be larger, texture a little thicker, but those things only separate it from where it is--very, very, good, with the only place left to go--world class.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from Rudat, Dortmund. The beer starts malty intense. Dark red fruit, plums, malt with a nice subtle but intense sweetness. Viscous, bitter-sweet, a bit too burned in the end, still easy to drink, roasted burned malt with plums and quite much hop bitterness in the end. Very interesting but nice!

Deep brown with small head. Very solid porter. Huge roasted malt. Chocolate and mild hop bitterness. Textbook example of the style.
