Very dark brown beer, transparent. Frothy beige head. Palate is crispy and dry, Lightly sour dark malt with a trace of lacto sweetness and smoke. Light milk chocolate. Hangs together very well. A sessionable porter this one!

Dark brown color, almost black, with medium sized head. There is a mild but nice coffee aroma, and very light anise. Lean body, with a quite dry mouthfeel; flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee; the final is weaker than expected. Easy.
Bottle no.342 of 2011 batch. Many thanks to Cuso for the trade. Pours totally black with an almost comically large off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate with some caramel notes. Taste is also roasty with some light fruitiness and chocolate leading to a moderate bitter finish. Carbonation way over done. Enjoyable but a little disappointing from a brewery which is usually, from what I understand, top notch.

75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, bought not too long ago, so don’t see why this is retired.. Dark reddish brown to black colour, light beige head. Aroma of brown malts, hard roasted malts, chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, hard roasted malts, chocolate, pipe tobacco, malty bitter finish. Medium bodied, overcarbonated. Nice flavours though. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2012
’09 bottle. Clear, dark red pour with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is faded, watery malt, caramel, and perhaps some cardboard. Taste is sweet malt with some light bitterness and really bland mishmash of I’m not sure. No roast or meaningful character. Fizzy, slightly biting mouthfeel which does not suit the style. I could have bought a better porter at trader joes for 1/10th of the price. Marheb (5907) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Une porter très avec un penchant sauvage presque sur. Pas très attrayante au plan des saveurs, trop mince. Geokkjer (7642) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2011
