dark brown with ruby edges, wispy beige head, big chocolate malt aroma with lots of citrus hops, rich dry dark chocolate flavor, plenty of hop flavor adds balance and keeps it dry,
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 14/20
I would like to rerate this beer.
Pours deep brown/ruby with a big, cream, tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and chocoff. Tastes malty, with big chocoff, fruit, and a roasty, somewhat rauchy finish. Medium in palate and fairly dense and bold. To me, this is an awesome porter...certainly a repeat buy, and a top 25er. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Pours a dark orange/brown body with a creamy tan/brown head. Piney bitterness in the nose along with some dark malts. Flavor has a piney bitterness element followed a fairly robust chocolate malty body. A good hoppiness and dark malty flavor on the finish. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015

Bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown body with a big brown and creamy head. Dark Chocolate malts in the nose that are dominated by an intense piney hopiness. Flavor begins with a piney hoppiness followed by the typical characteristics of a porters- creamy, smooth, dark malty body. Very interesting version that’s quite unique.
355ml bottle from AshtonMcCobb - cheers Ash! Pours dark brown, thin beige head. Aromas of tobacco, toffee, earth. Taste is tar, sweet dark sugars. Quite thin.

Had this at the Orsted cafe/bar, Kobenhaven 13-09-08 Don’t recall who shared this one, probably Ian (Harrisoni) but thanks to whoever. Poured dark, dark brown with nice chocolate and hops. This is smooth enjoyable and moreish, notes are getting less and less as the evening wears on. BVery (10510) - 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. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Black with huge light brown head. Aroma is packed with chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is sweet with roasted malt, chocolate and liquerice. Ends light bitter. Nice! DuffMan (10433) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a nut-brown with amber highlights and a foamy tan head that reduces to chunky flotsam. Aromas of chocolate, beef broth, clay. Dominant flavour is chocolate, with nuances of coffee, aniseed, breadcrust, pine. Has a hearty briney character. Finish is resinous and bitter. Loved it. alexsdad06 (10416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is mild to moderate roasted malt, chocolate, and some citrus hop notes. The flavor is mildly roasted malts, chocolate, and some citrus notes. The finish has some bitterness to it and highlights the dry hopping. I think it is an interesting idea, but doesn’t completely work for me and what I like in a porter.
