COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied ale is dark in color and deceiving on the palate. The glassy smooth finish of this beer is your first hint that dark in color doesn't always mean heavy in stomach.

Chocolate is the theme here. It makes its initial announcement in the aroma when Contorter is poured, influences the taste and continues through the sweet, chocolatey finish. Deceptively thin body. Dozens of better porters out there.

Erzengel (8242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Tiefschwarze Farbe mit beigem Schaum. Sehr toller caramelmalziger Schoko-Espresso-Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, cremig, aber etwas slich-klebrig.
Zum Hauptteil zeigt sich das Bier klebrig-malzig-slich, etwas langweilig-neutral, ganz leicht wssrig.
Der Nachgeschmack ist leider auch nicht annhernd komplex, malzig-slich, aber nicht klebrig. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine neutral-malzig-se Note Kaum Herbe sprbar.
--> etwas langweilig. Sehr sffig und gut trinkbar. Aber dafr sogar schon einen Tick zu s. Schade.

Bottle. Deep brown with minimal head. Big malt aroma. Chocolate and licorice. A bit weird and thin.

badgerbob72 (10) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Poured from a bottle, opaque black, with an off why head that quickly goes away. Not much of a aroma. As you drink the Coffee overtone of the malts come through. Very little hop taste. Classic Porter and a very good beer if you are not looking for anything hoppy.

portableparty (2320) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours brown/black with a thin foamy khaki head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has good roasted malt little coco and coffee and faint vanilla/toffee. Taste starts bitter with roasted malt some coffee and bakers chocolate and slightly nutty. Palate is thin to medium with a dry finish. Very easy drinking porter with good flavors.

Had it on tap at Ale Asylum in Madison Wi. Poured a dark black hue with no head or lacing. Slight coffee aroma with an equally subtly tasting coffee taste.

Draft at the brewpub. Midnight black. A coffee monster ... All the way in the aroma and flavor. Silky smooth on the palate, this would be great for breakfast. (#5115, 7/2/2013)
