Pours black with a roasty brown head. At first aroma is faint with hints of vanilla, cocoa and chocolate. The flavor was very smooth and had subtle fllavors of malts, semi sweet chocolate, dark fruit and coffee.
Very Well Done
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 (59) - 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 (269) - - 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. Niller (1706) - 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. Cunningham (7861) - 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.

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 (1301) - 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. MNAle (184) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2017
Very dark, black even, with a 1 inch brown-tan thick, creamy-looking head that recedes gradually, leaving lacing slipping down the glass. Smoaky, roasted malt aroma with hints of sweet raisins. Moderate mouth feel. Initial taste hit is somewhat sweet, but it transitions quickly to a lightly roasted flavor. The initial flavor has a character I can’t quite pin down... almost minty, but not really - maybe it is the wood others mention. The balance is provided with mild to somewhat more than mild bittering in the finish. Don’t be mislead by the name; this is a porter/stout in all but name. Decent.
