Bottle @ home, via rotbox. Pours a very deep brown appearance with a lasting dark brown head. The aroma has a lot of roast, some smoke, coffee, chocolate, and lots of earth. Moderate light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium full body. Roasty chocolate flavor with a hint of fruitiness on the back end. A little bit of burnt sugar / caramel. Not all that bad. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2014

In the can it had a tinny and smokey taste that a lot of Porters are incorporating lately. Wasn't blown away and found it very one dimensional

12oz cqn from Spirits Stafford. Poured with a HUGE beige head, basically an 80/20 head body split. Aroma has a lot of dusty/chalky notes trhoughout, ncie chocolate, slight dark fruit and black cherry, mdeicinal hint also. Flavor is roasty, burnt toast, touch of coffee grounds, lots of chocolate. Body is medium with stronger carbonation. Never had this before but something just seems a little off with this one. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Can: Rich black body, velvety tan head piles up nicely on top, settles slowly, & leaves nice sheets of lacing against the glass. Robust aroma of rich chocolate fudge, lightly sweet with a bit of roasty bitterness. Hints of Italian roast espresso, light molasses, slight char, roast, faint brown sugar, & a little bit of nestled cream in there. Again, flavor shows more robustness than 5.5% ABV would have you think. Notes of bittersweet chocolate morsels, coffee, woodsy roast, faint ashy & charred tones, a bit of molasses, & perhaps the lightest hand of anise. Dark, bitter chocolate & roasted malt finish. Mouth feel thicker than a porter, but not up to stout levels. The description is fairly accurate, this is very much a "porter-stout", & a pretty tasty one at that.
