Bottle, 0.355l, shared with Tomaz. Pours pitch black color with thin and quickly diminishing light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar and licorice. Taste starts with sweet and rich roasted malt with chocolate and nutty note, follows by licorice and dark fruits’ acidity and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Smooth and easy going... ebone1988 (2238) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2015

Bottle on 10/28/15. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates to a ring on the outside of the glass. Nose is coffee and roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is the same. Robust roasted malt. Coffee, cocoa, not much else but hits the style profile and does it well. Some smoky elements perhaps. Tasty

Dark in color on pour with a brownish head. There was a nice chocolate and smoke flavor to this beer. Not as sweet as most porters, and closers to a stout beer. Psytron (2564) - Turku, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
