UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 Tasting glass draft @ Billie's Bier Kafétaria. Very dark brown to black, mocha head. Very nice some bitter coffee finish, faint herbal, real chocolate, good sweet & low bitter balance, not just sweet, great classical low roast taste, caramel, maybe a bit more body for me. Great low bitter classical Porter, very good & classy, liked it a lot more than most Anspach & Hobday beers. Vighals (4453) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2017

@ Beerlovers bar. Bottle.
Great aroma with coffee and 'heavy chocolate'. Taste is coffee, roasted, a tad too burnt, a tad too bitter, still nice though. Nice carbonation. Burned aftertaste.

Keg @ Vocation & Co, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin off-white head. Has stated roasted malts in both aroma and taste, also with a small grittiness. hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle. Deep brown with tan head that’s soon a coat. Aroma is roasty with molasses, coffee, plain chocolate, some licorice. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Tastes pretty much as it smells with moderate sweetness from the dark sugars soon being overtaken by form bitterness, letting the roasted flavours gradually grip. Maybe a little much licorice for me but very good and enticing: sets its stall out rather than comes at you. Borup (15320) - Albertslund, DENMARK - APR 27, 2017
