Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Deep dark, black in glass, short light brown head, just bit lacing. Strange weiner aroma firs but evolves to licorice and coffee as this warms bit, dark chocolate, bit ash, dry crisp feel, dry & bitter, quite roasted, medium body, long roasted finish, peaty, malty syrup, bit dark fruits. OK, balanced, tasty, nothing special but welldone, nice smoky flavor - not burned harsh.

NordicV (1390) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
Flaska såld som Smoked Winter Porter. Nästan svart öl med ljusbrunt skum. Doft med lätt rostade toner, hö och aningen rökighet.. Rökigheten något mer påtaglig i smaken. Viss metallisk bismak. Gräddig munkänsla.

RichardGretton (4437) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Almost pitch black beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly roasted, bitter and cereal like. The flavour is quite bitter with a good degree of roastedness. Overall a nice porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
