Pours like liquid tar. Massively thick and with a frothy creamy head. Thick and syrupy with a deep black appearance. Not something you could drink a lot of but feels very special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle - 330ml. Pours an opaque, black body with an average, lasting, brown creamy head. Perfectly balanced , robust, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, roasty, and yeasty hints. Its strong malty/hoppt taste carries roasty, coffeeish, and woody notes. Alcohol is subtle. Ends with a long, strong, bitter/roasty finish. Awesome example of Porter.

adasko (809) - Poznan, POLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Doskonały czekoladowy, winny, palony, beczkowy, waniliowy i słodowy aromat. Piwo jest totalnie czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Bardzo ładna beżowa piana i świetny lacing. Wygląd perfekcyjny. W smaku, na początku pojawiają się nuty orzechowe. Następnie czuć głownie słody i bardzo bardzo gorzką, wysokiej jakości czekoladę. Jest też malutka nuta alkoholowa. W posmaku dominuje goryczka, kawowa, czekoladowa, chmielowa. Fantastyczny złożony smak. Piwo jest delikatnie za mocno nagazowane, delikatnie szczypie w język i podniebienie, ale nie przeszkadza to zbytnio. Nie jest przez to jednak perfekcyjnie gładkie i aksamitne. Ogólnie fantastyczne.

veceo (733) - CROATIA - DEC 6, 2014
Pitch black color, average sized brown head. Lots of lacing. Huge chocolate aroma, coffee and hops. Taste is the same plus strong nut and hazelnut presence. It’s moderately sweet with some light bitterness. Aftertaste is long and sweetish. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Nice and creamy texture. Excellent stuff.
