COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

thewolf (10785) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
Bottle. [thank you faroeviking]. Pours reddish black with a small, slightly lacing brown head. Aroma is sweet and malty, chocolate, some cinnamon. Generally quite low carbonation. Very full mouthfeel with slightly prickly bubbles. Flavour begins of sweet and malty. Then a heavy presence of alcohol along with roasted malts, dark chocolate and a touch of mocha-dark coffee. Flavour lingers a long time after swallowing, carried by the heavy (though not too powerful) alcohol presence.

bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Aroma of dark malt and a little dark fruit. Dark brown color transmits some ruby notes, and the tan head is vigorous and lasting. Starts with a dark fruit quickly followed by carbonation and then very strong toasted malt. The malt tends to compete with the hop. Interesting stuff.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle. Pitch black colour with a nice big creamy brownish head. Aroma of chocolate, well roasted malts, dark lagered fruits and caramel. Flavour has a good roastiness and chocolate in the beginning, then more round and caramellic with a dry bitter roasty finish. The alcohol is really not all that noticeable. Great porter!
