Very dark in the glass, malty-sweet nose. The beer starts more sweet than bitter, more smooth than dry. For my taste a bit too sweet and to undefined. The mainpart is sweetish-smooth, no deepness, no real dryness, no real roasted hints. The aftertaste is a bit viscous, not very deep in aroma, sweetish-smooth and only slightly roasted.

Not a very good stout - and much too sweet to be refreshing. --> 7/11/7/7
Dark brown and clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Heavy spicy aroma, thyme? Lightly roasted too. It makes it a bit unharmonic. Flavor is more spicy, herbs and laqurice. Creamy, watery texture. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2013
12oz bottle pours a watery, translucent mahogany brown with a quickly fading ring of tan head. Looks like flat Coke. Nose is reasonably nice, licorice, roasted grains, coffee grounds, brown sugar. Flavor is OK, mild brown sugar, licorice cola, some milk chocolate toast. Flavors are decent, but the flavor and finish are very watery. jackl (8029) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2015

[Bottle (11.2oz)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a small diminishing frothy beige head. Somewhat nice aroma of dark chocolate, dark fruit and dark malt -- simple but pleasant. Watery flavour is also chocolaty along with roasted malt, light hops and a dry, short bitter finish. Light to average bodied.
Too thin, a good but not great Porter. Nisse666 (7328) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
