"hopped as heavily as some imperial porters, without the big body or heavy roasted flavors and abv. the body is a little thin, but smooth. the aroma and taste with the malt and dry hopped balance really works, especially as it warms. if it had more body, it’d be among my favorite porters."

Poured a dark black color with a huge tan head. Aromas and tastes of roasted coffee with chocolate. Nice an hoppy as well. Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
Nice head and lace. Chocolate and hops in aroma, hoppy porter. I think less hops would be better, this would be interesting if on tap.

Bottle. 33 cl. Pours almost black with only slight red edges. Small off white head that stays. Aroma is quite hoppy on a base of roasted and chocolate maltyness. Dry at first, then you feel quite a lot of baby bubbles. The dryness comtinues, gaining more flowery bitterness, chocolate and a touch of roasted. Pinball (12598) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2009

355 ml bottle. Brought from Sweden. Courtesy of Brandman.madsberg (11798) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2006
Reddish dark brown almost black colour with big fluffy sand head.
Aroma is bitter hops, chocolate, some sweetness, roasted malt and dark fruits. Delightful combination of hoppy bitterness and Porter roastiness.
Flavour is more straight forward with strong roasted malt flavour with coffee, liquorice, salty liquorice, dry bitter grassy hops and ash. There’s no sweetness nor chocolate in flavour. Rich and full.
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Dense light brown head. Sweetish, chocolatish, light roasted, spiced and herbal aroma. Quite delicious. Flavour is smooth. Loads of chocolate and a mild roastiness in the flavour. Fruits is there, herbs are there and some vague spicenotes. Medium to full bodied. Quite dry mouthfeel. Balanced. Ends on a light roasty bitterness with some choconotes. Good one and just what I needed today after a long day at work. 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. 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. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2009
BOTTLE: Deep brown pour. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is roasted coffee, cocoa/chocolate, with a little hop kick.
