Taste: some caramel, bit sweet, roasted, mocha, little sour, pretty hoppy, coffee, bit sugary. Aftertaste: bit fruity, mocha, coffee, hops, dark chocolate. Very decent.
Bottle. Pours black with white head. Aroma us bitter coffee, nothing else. Taste is the same, quite bitter. Coffee in the back end. Not my favorite. 77ships (11481) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
33 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Spare tanned head, hazy brown dark amber. Bit thin sweet bread, caramel, cereal, toffee, faint leather, plum, allspice going into a strong gravy / touch soy sauce finish, touch herbal but only light bitterness. Bit thin for the style, not bad at all but I have had a lot better beers in this style. Mark_Eck (1998) - - AUG 3, 2014

A decent porter, nothing too fancy. Pours a reddish-black, could be a bit thicker though. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste has some sweet chocolate upfront, with lots of coffee in the finish. Had on tap at Amsterdam Ale House in NYC. Scipio (1273) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a medium tan head. Aroma consists of heavier chocolate with a caramel compliment. Undertones are licorice, coffee, and some light vanilla and smokiness. The taste remains dominated by chocolate, although there are some serious coffee flavors in here as well. Its rather earthy as well. Mild caramel and some very light smoke are also found. Aftertaste is a long and lingering coffee. This one is medium in body. The texture is thicker, while being slightly oily and slick, while having softer carbonation. I can’t say this is out of this world, but its a solid porter. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Chocolate fudge malt and light orange peel aroma. Black-brown with small head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Interesting - pretty hoppy. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 Pours an opaque black with a frothy khaki colored head and excellent lacing. Aroma has a nice amount of citrusy hops, chocolate, a little sweetness and slight roasted malt. Taste has a bold but smooth roasted malt flavor with some citrus and dark chocolate. A mild amount of char flavor and a rounded bitterness in the aftertaste. Finishes with some chocolate and lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Flavors are very well integrated and compliment each other nicely. I’m usually not a fan of hoppy porters but this one has everything in balance and it all melds perfectly. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2014
