berntholer (801) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2013
beige head that disappears fast with slight lacing. cola coloured. aroma of leather, smoked malt, earth and coffee. taste is leather with an aftertaste of coffee. quite a lot of carbonation, but a disappointing thin body. the thing i liked most about this beer was the label .. bottle 33 cl

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Highly carbonated. That is the best description I can think of to start. A very dark brown/black beer with a light brown head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate and dark malt. The flavour is more of the same, but not as bitter as I thought it would be.

Trappist1 (420) - Diest, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2013
Alcoholisch in de neus. Heel donker van kleur, stevige schuimkraag. In de afdronk veel koffie, heel rokerig, alcoholisch, Maar kort van smaak, vooraan in de mond. Goeie porter !

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2013
Pleasant roasty aroma masks what, in a lighter beer, might be an over powering phenolic note. Pushes clove almost into bandaid and antiseptic regions but not quite. Core flavour of this beer is a gentle roastiness with a little malt sweetness but it the bandaid returns in the aftertaste. This beer edges on flawed but is actually quite drinkable and not unpleasant

I dug up my garden today. I was a bit bored, relatives (not blood) had taken up my day meaning well, and I needed to do something productive. So I started digging. Wife asked what I had planned. I couldnít answer, I just needed to dig. So I did. Then I got tired but I felt good. Iíd achieved something. Just not sure what it is yet...

Rockspeny (15) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
From a 330c bottle, newly imported, not had time to settle! Pours a rich dark brown with big tan head, that slowly sinks to leave a tan ring. Trying not to get too much yeast into the glass. Smells of roast malt, oats and currants, makes me hungry. Tastes dry, sour creamy, oaty, bitter dark chocolate, the strong stuff you get from South America with a ton of cacao in. Went really well with the dried almonds I had at hand, a very satisfying beer went you want something dry and bitter, could easily have 2-3 of these in this mood. Good mouthfeel, not rich or heavy, just smooth with gentle carbonation.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2013
No bottling information, but a cool as hell swing top is included.
Appearance: A thick brown head resides shortly over a pitch black body and ends in a creamy ring around an other wise clean top.
Aroma: Lotís of raisins in the aroma with some chocolate notes, the raisins or currants are too much for me.
Taste: Currants dominate the flavor with a light roasted presence on the finish. In-fact this is like a raisin beer, far too much presence.
Palate: A bit thin with some soft carbonation.
Overall: This is a disappointment to me, far too much currant flavor, no complexity to back it up, whereís the roasted and chocolate malts?

bierkitty (156) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours deep clear brown with substantial mocha head and lacing. The intoxicating aroma was strongly of roasted malts with a bit of molasses or toffee. Flavor was richly endowed with roasted malt and some dark fruits. The sweetness was happily restrained. This was delicious and drinkable and Iíll definately seek it out again.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours near black with a massive tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a sweet chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry finish.
