TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours pitch black with a big beige head and an aroma of chocolate, white porto, espresso, syrup, cherries, roasted malts and dried fruits. The taste is malty and a little bit sweet, with a malty, gingerbread like finish with some hoppiness. Very nice.

MarcoDL (1984) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Yes, this is how a strong tasty porter should be. Aroma of burned malt, bitter taste of some rough coffee and again some roastedness. Even with some hop bitters, so the beer is far from sweet. Good.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Bottled from de Molen beershop, 5.6% version with Centennial, Simcoe, Columbus, dated 07.08.13 BB 07.08.14, large sample, served into a tulip glass. Dark brown color, big rocky light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight grainy, coffee, piney hops, hint of grapefruit, dark chocolate. I get the feeling of a black IPA almost, lots of hop coming through. Medium bitter in taste, slight chocolatey sweetness. Slight dry, but also some chocolatey creaminess. Soft to medium carbonation, medium bodied. Pairs wonderfully with a blue stilton, which accentuates the chocolate and adds some nutty notes as well.

mgajdaczewa (425) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 10, 2014
W aromacie mnóstwo czekolady, kakao, lekka kawa, wszystko grało ze sobą perfekcyjnie. W smaku takoż, balans, pełnia pomimo niewielkiej gęstości, pijalność! Obcowanie z klasyką. Doskonałe piwo!

doradobotella (89) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: De un negro intenso y opaco, con una duradera y cremosa cabeza espuma marrón claro. Aroma: A malta tostada, café y cacao, con notas a toffe y azucar moreno. Sabor: Se aprecian todos los matices a café y caco, bastante amargor pero con unas curiosas notas a caramelo.

Bottle in the Macc, Macclesfield. Dark brown to black with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, mild citrus and hops, brown sugar, caramel. Flavour has more lovely milky chocolate, citrus and pine, hints of smoke. Lovely mouthfeel. Stunner!

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2014
Svart öl med vackert espressoskum. I doften hittas choklad, kaffe, rostad malt och läder. Smakinslag av choklad, kaffe, soja och aska. Munkänslan går mot det torra hållet. Aningen för tunn kropp för ett högre betyg, men på det stora hela en riktigt bra porter.
