Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Dark ruby almost black colour. Heavy malty and light hoppy aroma. Roasted and burnt notes. Moderate bitter very burnt flavor. Lacks chocolate. AVerage mdoearte almost harsh bitter finish. Oily palate. Not a very good porter. glennmastrange (2871) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle. moderate toasted and molasses for the malt, light cooked orange and leather for the hops and yeast, with hints of vinegar, cola and charred wood. Head is small, frothy with big bubbles, off-white with some slippery lacing but good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark mahogany. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately bitter, then finishes lightly sweet and heavily bitter. Palate medium, watery with a soft carbonation with a fairly astringent and very dry finish. Some good aspects in this Porter, but I didn’t like the fact that the sweetness seemed artificial, the body was weak and the flavor was out of balance. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2011
Aroma is mostly roasty malt.
Flavour is roasty malt, coffee and a sharp sidenote.

Pours deep black color with light beige head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, licorice and some coffee at the end. Flavor of roasted malts, licorice, mild fruits, grain and coffee. Balanced and full-bodied but not that exciting. A bit disappointing.
Bottle. Deep brown color, rich tan head. Coffee grounds and wood in the nose. Silky smooth flavor with roasted malts and coffee. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. It’s just a bit too sweet to be amazing, but a decent beer as is.

Black color with with a fine brown head. Roasted aroma. Sweet and slightly bitter taste. Swet easily drinkable water and some stout, with low carbon content. BillHick420 (460) - NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
Pours dark black with a slight brown head. Aroma of mild black coffee and slight chocolate notes. A porter with classic taste. I feel like the chocolate aromas are lacking. Seems a bit unbalanced for a porter Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
Dark colour and tan head. I felt a bit disappointed by this, it’s quite sweet and the taste buds didn’t have to work overtime, as they have gotten used to. Still a good beer. (Bottle) brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
The pour is brown in color with a small tan head. Some roast malt, dark fruit, and a hint of coffee come through first on the nose. A bit dusty and oxidized. Quite a lot of dark fruit, especially prunes. The flavor is fairly simple. Some roasted malt, chocolate, and tons of dark fruit. DSG (14838) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Dark brown with a beige head. Sweet aroma with caramel, chocolate, a bit of vanilla and dark fruits. Sugary sweet malt flavor with some chocolate and caramel. Finishes drier. Medium-bodied.
