cblado (298) - Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep opaque brown color with a thick tan head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma is roasted malt, very malty. Flavor is roasted malt, toast, with chocolate and coffee notes. Finishes with a hop flourish. Palate is medium-thick and very smooth. Overall a very good porter.

As soon as the tops off, coffee, pours almost black with a small light brown head, the coffee aroma is strong and inviting, flavor matches but the sweet chocolate joins in along with some vanilla, leaving a pepper, spice bitter aftertaste, medium body creamy mouth feel, this is great.

mariuspoenari (2724) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2017
Dark brown pour with a short-lived beige head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, quite a bit of dark fruit, I think even some raspberry flavor, smoke, light roast. A very fruity porter, light and sessionable.

Tap at Cap Ale Downtown. Very dark with big foamy head and lacing. Smells like toast and roast with a metallic note. Smooth and creamy with a light roasty flavor.

fidemaster (327) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Aroma is fresh brewed coffee. Dark, pitch black. Coffee taste with a touch of unsweet chocolate. Average mouthful for a porter. Solid, but I wish it gave me more.

Drank on the porch with a cigar. Pours cola brown with thick tan head. Scent is chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar with cocoa, coffee, and roasted malts. A bit of smokiness and dark fruit as well unless that's coming from the cigar. Good light porter.

rougeau13 (3083) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle at The Exchange in Corpus. Very dark with a creamy tan head. Roasty and dark chocolate aroma with some coffee and some light indistinct hop. Smooth.

3.3
hauxe (835) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours very dark brown and leaves a creamy, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, cow dung(!), a bit of smoke, roasted grainy notes. Taste is nice: lightly sweet up front, smoky, turning both sour and evincing a roasted coffee bitterness going into the finish. Body is medium with a mild carbonation. Overall not bad, apart from that odd fecal note.

jamaty (2183) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2017
Marrón oscura, casi negra, de espuma ocre no muy abundante y poco duradera, que deja buen cerco. Aroma a café tostado, no muy intenso. Excelente punto de gas, cuerpo entre ligero y moderado, y un paso por boca suave, con un sabor muy equilibrado y agradable. Ricas maltas tostadas, chocolate y toque ligeramente ahumado. Postgusto claro a chocolate. Bien rica.

Brandon1989 (661) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan head that left some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same.
