33cl bottle. Black colour with small/medium brown head. Full bodied and average carbonated. Aroma is a mix of wood, alcohol and hints of roasted malts. Those malts are more evident regarding taste, with some chocolate notes and a slightly bitter aftertaste. I find it too soft for a beer like this, but it’s not bad.

Ron (3507) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Black with a light tan frothy head with good lacings. Aromas of roasted and chocolate malts with notes of toast, coffee, sugar, smoke and dried cranberries. Softly carbonated, velvety and fully bodied. Roast malt sweetness with some bittereness and some fruity notes. Lasting dry finish.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2016 Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma with light smoke, chocolate, roast, citrus. Taste starts with a big shot of espresso, caramel, some tropical fruit, smoke, dark chocolate, citrus, brown sugar. Pretty hoppy and bitter and malty sweet as well, full body. Lingering boozy chocolate/espresso finish. Another lovely brew by To Řl.

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!

Fules (670) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2016
Óriási csodaszép kávébarna, nagyon tartós tömör hab. Színe koromfekete. Illata határozott pörkölt jegyekkel rendelkezik, némi édeskés, karamellás beütéssel. Íze erősen pörkölt, már túl van a feketekávés jellegen is. Picit édeskés, kevés karamellel, és persze füstös. Testes sör.

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2016
En porter nĺr den er bedst. Smagen komme jeg til, men det jeg lagde mest mćrke til var da jeg hćldte den op. Der ligger sig et lille lag řl i bunden, og resten er skum. Tykt let brunt skum. Det řverste af skummet forbliver upĺvirket, mens det ser ud som om glasset fyldes nedefra med řl op gennem skummet. Skum = 10+ Řllet er som en porter skal vćre. tykt, brćndt smag. Godt řl!

Svart med hřyt tykt lys brunt skum. Lukter kakaopulver, kaffe og mřrk sjokolade. Middels fylde. I tillegg til de smakene som kom fram i lukten, er det en sel salt lakris der. Noe vanilje. Middels lang.
