ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color. About one fingers of creamy mocha-colored head is formed with a creamy texture and mediocre retention. Good lacing is left on the glass, at least. S: Theres a definite vibe of stewed dark fruits. I also note chocolate (a good deal), brown sugar, and licorice. Definitely serviceable as far as the style goes; too bad my dislike towards licorice pulls the score down somewhat. T: Yeah. Its definitely heavy on both dark fruits and licorice, especially on the opening. A definite roasted barley note creeps in on the back end, to pair with the crisp, dry finish. This doesnt excite me too much, plus its single-dimensional flavors dont help. M: This is very light for a 7% porter. Combined with the crisp, clean finish, the drinkability is excellent. The crispness is replaced with a bit of sweetness after a few sips, but this could still be chugged regardless. A bit undercarbonated, too. O: Any beer that I can pick up a lot of licorice flavors in is likely to get a big fat meh from me - the only reason this doesnt is because of how damn drinkable it is. Even still, I wouldnt seek this one out in the future.

Rather good. Rich bittersweet chocolate nose. Taste is a bit ashy then the chocolate and finishes dry with toasty toasty notes. Mouthfeel is thick and oily. Appearance is dark not much head or lace. A Complex and good.

Pours black with a thin but dense brown head. Very velvety mouthfeel, soft roast malts, dark malt bitterness. Very satisfying creamy aftertaste, good one.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Brown color with a modest sized tan head. Scents of chocolate, toasted and roasted malts, and hints of alcohol. Smooth feel. Light sweet start with some coffee, dark chocolate, and light fruit. Flavors thin out in the finish and linger making want more (in a couple different ways). 2/13

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2017
35 cl bottle. Nice thick beige head with small bubbles, doesnt stick around for long. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, light licorice, pretty standard great aroma for DH porters. Palate is viscous and lightly carbonated. Flavor mostly follows the aroma with chocolate and roastiness with some molasses. Once again a great, sturdy dark ale from Dark Horse.

abirres (117) - Salamanca, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2016
Negra, opaca y sin espuma. En nariz sorprendentemente licorosa, licor caf, chocolate y notas a frutos secos. Ahumada. Sabor a licor caf y chocolate, final seco a maltas tostadas. Demasiado licor, no parece estar bebiendo cerveza.

slowrunner77 (11460) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 13, 2016
smells amd tastes like a stout/porter hybrid with notes of roasted malt, licorice and fruit more than the traditional caramel and chocolate notes in a porter. Pretty nice.
