Had at Brickskeller during Savour 2010 week tasting event. Pours dark, with slight foam. Nice coffee taste to it. A nice porter.

Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2010
From notes 03/2010. Enjoyed at FFF on St. Patrickís Day 2010. Poured into a tulip glass at the brewpub. A near-black purple with a dark, creamy head. Roasty grains, dark malts, some chocolate and coffee. Some citrus hop-profile in the back. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, some roastiness, and a minor piney and citrus hop finish (I think this clocks in at 58 IBUs, but itís hidden by the malty profile). Off for the style, I think, but still tasty. Medium-bodied; I wish this one was just a little heavier in the mouth. Overall, this was a delicious, well-balanced baltic porter.

On tap at Mikkeller. Itís a black beer, topped by a nice, dense, beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has coffee and a sourish hint, as well as a good dash of dried fruits. Coffee and sweetness in the mouth, dryness too, and a little roasted maltyness. The lasting finish is more or less like the initial flavor, a bit less sweet though. Full-bodied. A really nice beer that goes in several directions style wise I think. Definitely a beer Iíd like to revisit. 100508

Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Quite much black colour with a mediumsized off-white creamy head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some slight roasted malts, caramel malts as well as some mild chocolate. Flavour is being quite much the same, in a rather sweet way. A bit sweet, otherwise quite nice.

nuplastikk (5692) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Draft at FFF. Described as a Belgian Stout by the bartender, which added some confusion rating it. Served in a tulip glass. Pitch black body under a big, fluffy, beige head. Creamy chocolate aroma, maybe a hint of bitterness. Rich chocolate tones, quite creamy and full bodied. Sugary, almost lactic. Big, but retains a nice Porter-like quality.

CanIHave4Beers (3969) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Pours a deep brown with a good head and good lace. The aroma is roasty with a good chocolate character. The aroma on this one is pretty simple but itís also very nice. The flavor is roasty with a light fruity character. There are some smoky flavors and plenty of chocolate. The alcohol is very well concealed and in many ways this was quite a bit like a very nice regular style porter.

On tap at 3F Brewpub. Black. Sweet aroma. Lactose. Flavor is bitter, strong, roasted. Lovely mix of burnt toast, a little grainy, lots of chocolate.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours opaque, almost black, with a light brown head. Nose is roasty malts, some chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a light burnt bitterness. Very smooth with more roastiness, slight sweetness, lots of coffee and smaller amounts of chocolate and caramel. The alcohol only became apparent towards the finish. Finish is long, drying, with more roasty chocolate and coffee. Great porter.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Pours pretty much pitch black with a medium brown head that leaves excellent webby lace. Aroma has beautiful floral hops, fresh tropical fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, very nice roastiness that is never ashy. Taste is chewy, hoppy, slightly spicy, with a creamy body, slight bitterness, a bit sweet actually. Really beautiful. Yummy yum yum.
