Bottle from Dec 2012. Black oily colour with dark tan head that fades to a thin slick aroma is roasty , coffee and chocolate Amazing taste initially smooth dark chocolate and toasted malt gicing way to a more acidic clean bitter coffee with crisp finish. Long aftertaste - really long aftertaste - all those complex flavours just hanging around keeping the tastebuds watering. Nice alcohol warmth comes in. Smooth plate low carbonation very rich damn fine beer

At hunahpu day 2013! Dark black pour tan head dissipates. Sweet aroma then roast malts. Taste similar light coffee and burnt grains. Its okay worth drinking but dont search out for.

650 ml bottle shared from Beer&Deli. Excellent black colour with a nice brown head. The aromas were nice with hints of coffee at first and maybe some chocolate as the beer got warmer. The taste was not so good. The alcohol was overwhelming everything else. Only warmer could you understand some coffee and roasted notes. The body was nice and so was carbonation. A dissapointment, despite al the good words i have heard!!

Pour is an oily viscous pitch black color with a dark brown head. Toooons of toasted malt on the nose, dark fruit and alcohol, some milk chocolate, anise, and a hint of caramel. Really thick and rich bitter chocolate notes up front, dark roasted coffee, dark fruit quickly fades away to toasted malt, slight oakyness, and a bit of caramel and molasses. Delicious, 6 month old baltic porter. Very well balanced.

Jet black with a thick tan head. Disappears quick. Aroma is mainly chocolate, roasty, coffee. Taste starts smooth followed by a long long bitterness that hangs about. Iím struggling to pick out flavours as the bitterness is overpowering. Oily & medium bodied.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours jet plack with a large tan head. Very oily inky mouthfeel. A lot of peat, earthy, cocoa, pretty harsh really. More of an imperial stout than a porter, not bad.

Backlog rate from the spring; bomber into goblet. Dark brown pour, head dies. Lovely chocolate and light coffee roast nose, tastes sweet chocolate, dark caramel, bitter roast, coffee, hint of vanilla. Medium body (light for the style), creamy smooth, soft carbonation. Delicious and easy-drinking.
