Tranquillity (2041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Almost black, with medium brown head. Bottled. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste is strong we with bitterness and coffee flavors. There is also some fruits and nuts present, with a bit of sourness. The finish is sweet rather than bitter, which i like.

AWS9 (670) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Kind of lifeless deep brown pour. Malty cinnamon aroma, a bit sharp. Found it quite carbonated, almost soda-like, with some sweet cinnamon and spice notes, mild malt backing. Actually fairly drinkable, but it wasnt a deep, satisfying after-meal, watch with the game on, type beer I was expecting (and hoping for). Perhaps a decent beer, but disappointing for the style? Eh, give it a shot.

650ml brown bottle. Deep brown colour, creamy and sticky tan head. Aroma is chocolate/cocoa. Taste cocoa/choc malts. Dryish end with lingering dark malt character. Light palate. Not getting any sort of spice. A decent and perfectly drinkable porter nonetheless.

650ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is quite a nice porter, with a nice balance of roasted notes and chocolate. Recommended.

KoNrRiI (1319) - rhus, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2015
0.65 bottle. Clear, very dark brown color and a medium, pillowy, beige head. Aroma of wood strikes first, then some licorice, dark fruits, smoke, and a touch of cardamon. Taste is strong: roast, herbs, dark malts, some spices, and hints of dark chocolate. Full body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. A herbal, medicine-like taste and anise are the most vivid in the beers finish. Overall, quite a nice brew, though given the style nothing overly pleasing - it certainly looks the part though..

Nearly black pour with a finger of tan head. Roasted coffee and cinnamon on the nose. More cinnamon on the palate with some chocolate and coffee notes. Theres also a bit of earthiness. Medium bodied with a lengthy bitter and spicy finish.

gegwilson (3525) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Deep mahogany with a thin beige head. Rich chocolate pudding aroma. The taste starts with light spice. Smokey roast flavours with chocolate notes lingering in the finish. Quite a light body. Decent.
