maeib (8714) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a good but shirt lived beige head. A bit of lactose in the otherwise thinnish nose. Nice and smoky in the mouth. Roasted malts. Soy salty flavours too. Very tasty. Needs a bigger aroma but otherwise quality.

Bosskie (399) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2011
Pitch black with reddish hints in the light and a brownish head. The smell is smoky, almost fleshy. Coffee bitterness and hints of nuts. Very bitter-salty with a watery refreshing finish. Nicely fizzy. Coffee mixing with moutiness and dry meat smokiness. Very subtle hints of fruit. Interesting beer.

Martinus (2811) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2011
Pitch black beer, beige head. Aroma of chocolates, hazelnut, cocoa. Flavour sweet chocolate, slight smoke. Creamy texture. It’s nice but it seems to miss depth.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle at a pub in Ghent. It poured a pitch black liquid with a brown head. Smel and taste of coffee, chocolate, cockies and dark roasted bread. An cakey and yummy porter with a very nice smell. It didn’t quite deliver the same taste sensation, but all in all a very nice beer.
