Bottled 0,65 ltr (bottle from Oregon)
Opaque black color, small beige head. Strong chocolaty, coffee bean aroma. Medium-bodied. Chocolaty, toasted, coffee bean flavor. Sweetish finish. Low bitterness. Very tasty, especially if this is really only 5.5%.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle transported by Alex. Thanks! Dark brown color with golden notes and a tan head that ran off at once. Great aromas of chocolate and coffee. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is coffee, toast/burnt malt and a bit of milk chocolate. Finishes pretty dry, very smooth, with something that might be wood smoke. Recommended.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of dry toasty, smoky dark malts and a touch of coffee. Starts with average fullness and just a hint of sweetness before a drier toasty dark malty bittersweet finish. A pretty good porter, but drier than I expected.

marcus (6780) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
This black ale poured with a rich tan head and a smoky aroma. There is a chocolate and coffee flavor that is tasty, but not super rich. Very drinkable.

douglas88 (6333) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2009
22 ounce bottle thanks to BrewDad. Pours a deep brown color with a thick white head. A sweet nutty aroma, light coffee and toasted malts. A nice mellow- but flavorful- taste of nuts, milky coffee, light roasted malts. Good.
