This is a seriously good beer. This is by far the best porter i have ever had. It is mellow yet has really deep and complex flavours.

Pringao_Toribi (347) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 2, 2013
A very interesting porter, very refinated and aromatic, even the coffee flavours are more sweet than others porters, and have hints of smoke as the german rauchbiers. And the best is that is way drinkable than most of porters.

Great beer, one of my favourites at the moment. Rich taste of chocolote, bread, subtle smoke en bitter coffee, interesting aftertaste. A little masterpiece actually.

dmac (5294) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Draft at Capones. Poured a good looking medium to thicker bodied dark black with a full foamy beige head. Aroma is nice, notes of smoked meat, pork and ham, campfire. Flavor is big and roasty with smoke and campfire along with pork and a touch of dark chocolate. Palate is spot on with a big full body that is slightly syrupy along with average carbonation and a creamy finish. This was probably the best beer of the trip.
