12 oz. pour at Brouwers. pours near black with thick lacing. The aroma is of vanilla wafers, malt vinegar, peppers, chocolate, clove, dark fruits. . .this is seriously complex stuff. Palate is creamy. It takes a few sips to get whats going on here, its overwhelming my palate in a delightful way. I find notes of sour fruit, chocolate, pepper, crackers, licorice and assorted baking spices. I really enjoyed drinking this one, if nothing else for how much it flexed my palate.

Wow was this interesting! Poured an expected dark brown with a dark brown head. Character is marzipan, sweet black patent, burnt fruit, raisin, caramel, nutmeg. Body has a long sweet roasty finish that almost reminds me of a Belgian yeast. Subtle and delightful.

Sampled on tap at Cascade Brewpub, pours a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of anise, cinnamon, ginger and chocolate. Flavour of chocolate and anise upfront, with some dark spices and mild roasted notes. Finishes with licorice and mild chocolate. Decent.

douglas88 (8996) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2012
On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is rich spices and chocolate. The flavor is unusual in some sense, rich sweet spices, chocolate and caramel. Decent, not a huge fan of big spices.

Unusual, but nice porter. Viscous brown appearance. Shy nose, full bodied with a spicy palate. Meaty finish accented by fennel/anise.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Nose of roasted dark malts, patent notes, licorice, bubblegum, cinnamon, Belgian yeast notes. Nice aroma. Pours more or less black, creamy tan head with great staying power and lace. The flavor is nice and roasty with dark malts, nice balanced spice notes, cinnamon, licorice, nutty notes. Lingering sweet yeast and dry dark malt notes. Great smooth mouthfeel, wonderful carbonation. A really nice beer here.

Draft at ncbc. Pours black with a dense and.creamy tan mousse that really lasts and lasts, leaving plenty of sheeting lace. Gorgeous. Mild sweet nose, a little figgy, some dates, some licorice, definitely more to the yeast side than the malt side. Creamy medium body with nicely present but understated carb. Roasty, chocolatey, much less fruity on the tongue than the nose. Finishes almost dry, just a bit of malty sugar. Tasty, understated.

Not the most flavorful beer they have created but a solid Belgian style Porter, accurate description.

A Belgian Porter I have never heard of. Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice spices nutmeg and added cinnamon in the aroma. There is a fruitiness added to the sour and dark malts. Finished smooth and dry.
