12oz can from Three Cellars in the Falls. Very dark brown pour with a beige head leaving some streaky lace. Choco-caramel with also some dark malts. Fairly rich and leaning bitter. Taste is a bit smoky. Medium bodied, little alcohol presence. Blend is good, carbonation is solid. Finishes more bitter than bittersweet. Tasty porter. 14 Palme (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This is a deep dark looking one, near black in the glass and it has a medium sized sidesticking beige top. Smells dark chocolate and a little bit of sweet licorice. Quite nice and present aroma. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and it’s just below average on the bubbles. Coffee-loaded, a little bit of paper, dark malts. Works well with the spicy smoked beef-jerky @ Mikkeller Bar. 16.05.2016 crossovert (13747) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2016
355ml can. Pricey but we’ll see. Brown pour. Aroma is nice, cocoa, and malt. Falvor is cocoa, bit metallic, fruity. Okay brown ale, bit sweet and sugary but decent. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after running for a very long time. Appearance is pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is very nice, light nutty profile with chocolate, caramel and coffee, very good. Taste is also very good, not too sweet, chocolate notes, roasted malt. Nice one here. joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016

Draft. A black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, bread, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with boots of chocolate, roasted malt, and citrus fruits, leading to a bitter finish. Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2016
Aroma is coffee and some toasted malt. Flavor is smokey, milky, and some coffee. Slightly milky finish and very soft feel. Pours deep brown almost black. Had out of a can at home PhillyCraft (7741) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Glass at the Festival with James. Pours a dark brown, nearly black with average head. This porter was ultra bitter with overly roasted coffee bean, wood, and tobacco smoke. Light to medium in body with too much carbonation for a porter. Too much BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Backlogged rating: Deep brown with a very frothy tan head and good lace. The nose shows roast, coffee, slight mocha, resin and herbal hops with faint pineapple and fig. The taste has moderate roast, bready and nutty malts with a touch of coffee bitterness. Faint fruit and grainy finish. The bidy is thin to medium, lively carbonation and ashy finish. it is okay, not all that complex really. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2014
