Tasted blind next to Founders Porter.
A darn fine porter, but next to the Founders it pales a little bit. The mouthfeel on the Founders is better, and a little roastier-oxidized.
Nonetheless, totally deserving of its excellent reviews.
Dark appearance with a tan head. Chocolat, malt and coffee aroma. Tadte of coffee and chocolate. SG111 (1820) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Tap at the source. Pours black, tan head. Very roasty malt, coffee, chocolate.. Roasty malt, chocolate, coffee. Super roasty. Coffee bitterness finish. Solid. commonshawn (1256) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Tap at brewery in Marshall during glbtq. Black with small tan head. Roasty nose. Taste is strong roasted malt with some finishing bitterness. Medium thin body. Feels like a hybrid between a black ale and a porter. orbit (80) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2017
Very nice and smooth porter, drinks easily and hits the taste buttons right away, not a surprise it has a high rating, it has everything a good porter should have. balloonbuffoon (314) - - JUN 7, 2017
12floz bottle (BOD/BBD?: 11.30.2016) that I bought as part of a mix-six for $9. Appears in my pint glass nearly black in color with a small amount of light brown head. Roasted malts are strong with dark chocolate, licorice, and touches of smoke. This leads to sharp bitter roast flavor and chalky heavy body. I find it too be overloaded in one way, so it won’t make my seek after porter list.

Bottle from Voldby. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma and taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily texture. Bitter roasted finish. Cunningham (7946) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2017
Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and fizzy carbonation level (as usual for barrel aged beer). Easy to drink. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Semi dry ending. Wood/oak, chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavor. Nice easy drinkable stout with a fine character. Just a bit to thin mouth feeling.elbernays (1496) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 13, 2017

Pours opaque petroleum black. Small beige head. Big coffee, chocolate, earth, citrus hops on nose. Medium body. Powerful flavour. Rich roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Decent hopping. Long bitter finish. Perfect porter (or stout?).oobawa (1394) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2017

Big hoppy bitter bomb of a porter, chock full roasty unsweetened chocolate, deep raisin and mocha notes underneath. Mild sweetness perks up as it warms, and a lengthy bitter finish adds a nice spiteful fade. Surprisingly good.
