Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is dark brown and mahogany, with no sparkle, ring of beige head with no lacing. Aroma is dark malts with syrupy sweet fruit (lessens as warms), molasses (increases as warms), earth. Taste is mix of bittersweet roasted malts, molasses and dark fruits. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste but crisp. Overall, nice balance between sweet and bitter, fairly restrained, with luscious mouthfeel.

Brune 33 cl à mousse blanc/jaune plutôt persistante. Odeurs de réglisse, de cerise, de caramel, de candi. Saveurs chocolatées, sucrées, un peu de café, des fruits noirs ... Bel équilibre même avec ce côté "sucré" qui ne me fait pas penser à une Porter mais me plait assez. Pas contre, quasi pas d’amertume ! AVLarsen (177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle. A nice foam. Not quite dark enough for my taste. Taste is nice and bitter but not very rich or full. A nice porter. Itzjerm (2954) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2017
