Bottle. Pours black with light tan head. Nose of roasted chocolate malts, licorice and coffee. Taste of roasted chocolate malts, cocoa, coffee and licorice. Medium body. Smooth. brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is a very dark brown with a bit of reddish notes and a thin khaki head.
S: There’s quite a bit of sweetness to the nose. I get caramel and sweet chocolate. The roasted malt and coffee notes are a bit more subdued.
T: As much as the roast is in the background on the nose, it’s surprisingly strong and "featured" on the palate. Lots of roasted malt flavor with a nice bitter chocolate compliment. Some slight caramel sweetness and a bit of an earthy hop flavor.
M: The body is medium with a smooth and almost creamy feel on the tongue. The carbonation is moderate.
D: Not quite an amazing porter, but quite good. Solid in all aspects. Dedollewaitor (16239) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2016

Bottle. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Dark brown/black color with a decent tan head. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Indeed there is a smokey note to the malt. Coffee tends to dominate the finish. There seems to be hop bitter. A very good porter. djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
