An opaque brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is very sweet and lovely roasted, but also with hints of alcohol. The flavor is very roasted giving it a very dry mouthfeel right from the beginning, but it also contains light spicy notes and hints of cellery. The end is dry and roasted. Quite nice. Thanks Papsø for sharing. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2006

Thick foamy tan head, black body - beautiful! Sweet hard roasted aroma with coffee and a dusty edge. Roasted flavor as well with a biding hoppyness and an ultra dry finish. A nice porter! mabjork (693) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2006
Bottled. Dark ruby red with a beige white head, lacings. It has a roasted malty aroma with hints of juniper berries, interesting aroma. It has a roasted and malty flavour with chocolate. Sweet and soft. There is a roasted aftertaste.. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle from TannerTavernboys. Black colored, long-lived light brown head. Fantastic lacing. Coffee and nutty aroma. Medium bodied fairly astringent. Bittersweet taste, oddly a touch of bananna?, plenty of cocoa, dry finish with a pleasant hop bitterness that lingers.

Bottled. Dark ruby red/dark brown colour. mediumsized brown head. Caramellish, very sweet malts in aroma along with some roasted notes. Also some dark chocolate and coffee. Flavour is strongly smoked, some chocolate, and old coffee there. Very pleasant brew. Sticky and dry palate in finish. Aftertaste is roasted and sweet caramellish/hoppy.

Almost opaque dark ruby, good firm creamy expresso head. Juicy hoppy aroma with roasted notes. Medium-bodied, chocolaty roasted, decently hoppy. As expected, not alcoholic, more "session porter-like". Roasted malty aftertaste. Balanced tasty porter.
Thanks to Mike from Bon Vivant for the bottle. Black bodied with a tall foamy tan head. Nose is strong roasted malts, burnt cookie, and coffee notes. Taste is strong roasted malts, light smoldering wood, coffee and dark chocolate. Bit of piney hops in the background as well. Body has some lingering bitterness. Medium-full feel and an almost creamy carbonation. Finishes with a bigger dark chocolate flavor, light coffee, and burnt, roasted malts. KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours black and completely opaque. Huge tan head that yields heavy lacing as you work your way through the glass. The taste starts out with a charred wood and bitter chocolate bite and yields to sweet malt influence iand then finishes wih a dry hops lemon flavor. Overall a fine brew.

Aroma is strikingly that of a pale ale - slightly hoppy fruity lemons. Big, rocky head sits upon a dark crimson body. Flavor is a potpourri - sometimes lots of charred malt, bitter chocolate and an IPA like hoppiness that lingers. This beer is fantastic - thanks James!
