This brew pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and touches of hops. Light body with a roast character and flavors of chocolate malt and coffee. The finish is sweet with a roasty malt aftertaste. Decent overall. omhper (25538) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012

Dark cola like pour with a medium tan head. Aroma: roasted malt, hops, coffee, peat. Initially bitter, sweetens as it warms. You can pick up the coffee and chocolate. Smooth and light on the palate. Not bad at all. blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle [330ml] shared with garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o garthicus. Pours a very dark brown with an average size fizzy light-brown head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, some light coffee and leafy hops. Flavour of light roasted malt, coffee, light leafy hops and a light roasty/bitter finish. Average bodied -- a bit thin but it is a Porter. Not a bad Porter at all. danielecamo (839) - ITALY - AUG 26, 2012

330ml bottle share by garthicus with me and blankboy. Nearly opaque brown-black with a huge lasting fluffy/creamy lasting light brown head. Light aroma, good bit of moderate nutty/coffee roast, some cream and mint (power of suggestion) - dry, a little bit of clay? Taste follows, a bit acidic and oily. Slick, average body, light carbonation, a slightly tart oily aftertaste. Decent stuff. pellegjr (396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2012
