Bottle. Pours black with a medium, brown head. Aroma is a lot of roasted malt with chocolate and woody notes. Flavor is more roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, nuts, mild woodiness, and some smoky notes with a dry finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good porter.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a perfect black as my soul color, darkened brown bubbly head that laced upon the vessel very well. Aroma of licorice, peat, smoke, coffee, hate- you know, all the good things in life. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt was sent straight to hell with hellfire, but it just smiled and laughed. Middle has a small sting of hops, finish has an oily lacquer feel to it intertwined with smoke and dark chocolate. Itís not my fav (Alaskan smoked porter), but itís close. Very close.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Şişe, istanbul. Siyah renk, kahverengi hızlı sönen köpük.. Koku kavrulmuş aroma malt ağırlı.. Sert sayılır ama düz. Tadım yine kavrulmuş malt ve biraz da topraksılık.. Daha çık kahve espresso tınıları bekliyordum ama bulamadım.. Acılık da ön planda ve kalıcı.. Orta seviye bir Porter..

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slow motion gusher. Big head, a touch too fizzy but otherwise a nice body. Tries so very hard to be elite...the smoke and roasted malt are done very very well. Thereís just both a slight vegetal aroma and flavor, and itís a touch too bitter, making it a little rough around the edges, if still quite enjoyable."

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque black beer with a thick, foamy beige head. Rich, chocolate malt aroma with a hint of nuttiness.Flavour follows suit and is hearty and rich but with a sharp, tangy fruit edge which only adds to it. You get the hops more as you get through the beer. It really has a bit of everything.
