ComradeK (1270) - Sydney, - JUN 21, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tiny beige head, which neither lasts well nor leaves much lacing. Bitter coffee and dark chocolate malt notes mix with a slight charry scent to create the aroma. Very mild herbal and citrus hops give way to bittersweet dark chocolate in the mid-palate, with a strong coffee bitterness coming into the finish, along with an odd off-sweet flavour. This offers fairly standard porter flavours, and is a passable effort, although not exactly exciting.

12oz bottle @ Casa Mia. Pours black with mahogany edges and a creamy light brown head. Loads of dark malt and semi-sweet chocolate, roasted coffee aromas and flavors. Full bodied with a smooth, creamy finish and lingering roasted coffee and bakers chocolate flavors that go on forever. Outstanding.

commonshawn (1339) - 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.

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.

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.

Niller (1718) - Hammel, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2017
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.
