Strong malty aroma maybe a hint of licorice, pitch black body no head, rich and smooth with raisins, chocolate and licorice no hint of alcohol. better than i was expecting!

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 1, 2015
A medium brown body with a light brown head. Aroma was a nice mix of roasted malts that had a bit of smokiness to it. Semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of molasses. Flavor was well balanced. Roasted malts always pair well with chocolate malts. Chocolate malts seemed a bit retrained giving the roasted qualities a chance to shine. Slightly dry finish. Carbonation seemed a bit elevated, but not enough to hur the beer.

Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny light tan ring. Roasted malt, liquorice, cough drops, molasses and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, sweetness, chocolate, molasses and some liqouorice. Not bad. A bit thin.

Pours a dark ruby with a thick tan foam head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, and some roast. Flavor is very similar, a little bit sweet, no bitterness. Body is a tad thin, but this is an excellent porter.
