First smell has a strong scent of roasted beans. First taste has a bit sweetness, roasted chocolate and some hints of red fruits. Remarkably well balanced. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage in Dover, NH. Aroma is light bready malt with hint of grassy hops. Appearance is very dark mahogany--almost opaque, with surprisingly robust sparkle and 1 finger-width foamy head and nice minimal lacing. Taste is more lightly sweet than lightly bitter with a lingering pleasant long bitter finish. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture, average carbonation. Overall, I’ve come to expect a lot from this brewer and thought they’d knock this out of the park. It is OK but there are a lot of better porters out there.

@BeerTemple , Amsterdam, 30/5/2015 - Aged Porter van 2012 die 3 jaar in de kelder heeft gestaan... schenkt zwart met bruine kraag. Aroma van koffie, chocolade, gebrande mout, best ok. Smaken zijn direct bij de eerste slok al opvallend dun, hmmm dat voor een aged bier..... erg dun allemaal.... verder uiteraard de koffie, bittere chocolade, vanille, weinig aging kenmerken.... erg vlak en flets allemaal.... bittertje in de afdronk en wat droog.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black with a mid sized head. Good retention. Aroma containing notes of roast, malt, and dark chocolate. Relatively light bodied for a porter. Dark chocolate, malt, and roast coalesce with a mildly hoppy and dry finish. Average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour with a small light tan head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, dark coffee, and toasted malts. Taste is pretty much the same as aroma except a slight bitterness at the end. Quick finish of cocoa and malt. Medium body, slightly chewy texture, average carbonation. Definitely more robust than most porters with a heavier, almost imperial stout like taste. Very nice!
