This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Aroma is coffee and cherry, slightly roasty. Flavor is a bit more hoppy, but the sweet and roasty maltiness is still what dominates. The blending becomes apparent as it warms, revealing a fair amount of complexity. Overall, it’s a trifle thin, but a very nice beer.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a medium-sized creamy tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and toasted bread. Flavor of roasted malt, marshmellow, and light coffee. Medium bodied with a creamy, soft carbonation, and a somewhat bitter finish.

bierkoning (12589) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2006
Coffee, licorice and brown sugar in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish, medium bodied. Bitter walnut aftertaste. Tasty, but the licorice character is somewhat exaggerated. Nevertheless a fine beer.

BeerandBlues2 (12198) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Comes in a flask bottle which is quite unique. Pours a wonderfully clear and clean mahoganey with virtually no head, but what is there is tan and lasts only seconds. The aroma is a sweet dark chocolate that makes your mouth think it is about to get into some fine dark and smooth piece of chocolate. Coffee notes follow and then a bit of hop tickles your nose. Initial flavor is a silky smooth roasted chocolate malt flavor that finishes mildly hoppy. A full-bodied palate and silky mouthfeel.

thewolf (12137) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle, bought at Cockneys, Aarhus. My 4,200th rating! Pours great, clear mahogany with a nice, medium, creamy, off-white head. Fine duration, light lacing. Soft sweet aroma, light roasted, raisins and a touch of burnt maltiness. Some wood and liquorice as well. Low carbonation, just a tad thinish. Flavour begind quite sweet with caramel, then develops nicely towards a more fruity and roasted malts base. Great, long, dry and roasted aftertaste.
