bottle from mathieu t., many thanks! pours almost black with a nice creamy beige head, some retention. strong coffee and roasted notes, smoked malt, scotch whiskey, maple - some sweetness, never cloying, few burnt malts, leather and soy sauce. soft carbonation, medium to full body, big resinous and citrusy hops for a medium long dry-hopped citrusy finish. quite nice sipper!

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, smoke, oat, barley, corn and malts. The color is pitch black with a minimal brown head. The taste is full of hops, chocolate, coffee, smoke, malts, barley, oats, sugar and tar. A nice beer!

nybol (1301) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2016
En porter nr den er bedst. Smagen komme jeg til, men det jeg lagde mest mrke til var da jeg hldte den op. Der ligger sig et lille lag l i bunden, og resten er skum. Tykt let brunt skum. Det verste af skummet forbliver upvirket, mens det ser ud som om glasset fyldes nedefra med l op gennem skummet. Skum = 10+ llet er som en porter skal vre. tykt, brndt smag. Godt l!

budedou (760) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 12, 2016
Pours a dark brown, almost black color, topped with a fairly big tan colored head, very creamy. Quite roasty aroma with some mild chocolate notes. Creamy body with a quite grainy barley feel and high bitterness. Mild coffee. Roasted barley, its not my taste....

Beachmaster (415) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a huge brown head that lasts. Nose is black coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is big coffee flavor up front, with some chocolate in the middle, and a burnt roasty malt finish. Noticeable booze on the finish. Delicious.

350ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Black pour with a brown head. Thick and strong. Chocolate. Caramel. Roast. Soy. Molasses. Wow! This is a big brew! Full bodied with some alcohol presence. The blend is not great. Finishes more sweet than bitter, but also strong. Very nice!
