Tap @ the brewery. Pours dark brwon with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate, floral hops. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, licorice. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Overall a very nice tasty porter. 270211 Sammy (12197) - 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.

"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."

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. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2010
355 ml bottle. Brought from Sweden. Courtesy of Brandman.shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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.
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. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Very dark brew. When held up to white hot halogen, the beautiful crimson hue shines through. Lovely! Medium-sized khaki head. Creamy, but quickly dissipating. Decent lacing.
The nose indicates a well-hopped beer with notes of flowers and pine along with dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Also, a beefy/spicy note of some kind... unidentified, but very nice.
Deeply roasted and malty sweet flavor up front. Moderately bitter with more malty sweetness on the backside.
Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet, syrupy, chewy finish.
Very good beer. I would have to say that my fellow Ratebeerians are right on the nose with their average ratings regarding this brew. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2008
A unique porter. Dark, dark brown, but light does pass through it. A nice tan head that lasts for a bit. Aroma is hops and more hops. Flavor is hoppy and a tad bitter. Strong coffee flavors are present as well...if you like dark beers and hops then this is the beer for you.
