Pours a dark reddish brown with no head. Aroma is dark chocolate and malt. Taste is so clean and notes of chocolate and malt. This has a nice clean finish with no bitterness.

Pretty mediocre porter. It’s nice... Just boring. Shine toasty notes throughout with hints of coffee and chocolate. That’s about it.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2014
355 ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown, thin beige head. Aromas of dark chocolate, nuts. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate. Light roasty bitterness at the end. Quite thin body for a 7%er too. OK.

3.7
Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2014
This is a fairly complex porter, that disguises each note until the beer warms up. Chocolate malts and brown sugar/molasses forward. Dark fruit and anise notes come out in the back end. Think of a dried fruit covered in baker’s chocolate. Thin in body yet creamy in mouthfeel - toes the line between porter and stout quite well. The 7% is not overly noticeable here.

MattOnBass (9) - Newport News, Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2014 does not count
One of the best porters around. Great roasted, malty character with hints of dark chocolate and coffee.

3.6
jgb9348 (6256) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin, just barely covering the top as a light brown glow. Aroma of raisins, figs, earth, caramel, nuts and a good deal of vanilla. Medium-bodied; Very rich nutty flavour with a subdued molasses and caramelised sugar flavour and some more flavourful prunes, raisins and even chocolate flavours finishing off the flavours. Aftertaste is nice with a light grain and malt flavour, some raisin and fig sweetness and a good light oak and vanilla dryness at the end. Overall, a nice porter - no strings attached, good for the style and in general as an all-around beer. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington a bit more than a year later on 23-August-2014.
