UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 0,33L fles, do keer bruin met een bruinE kraag. Geur is typisch geroosterde mout koffie en cacao maar ook zoet stroop schriftuur. Smaak begint vol zoet met wederom de stoop. In de afdronk komt ook het hopbitter en alcholwarmte. Niet helemaal in balans en wat te zoet. k92488 (486) - KVERNALAND, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014

Between a Porter and a Baltic Stout...Chocolate, caramel, alcohol (Baltic hints) with a complete mouthfeel (Porter hints) and a soft carbonation.
Hop complexity with a well balanced progressive strike. dosantos (11) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2014
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, nuts, wood, alcohol
Appearance: Dark with little tan head. Small liqueur lacing.
Taste/Palate: Full body, liqueur, soft carbonation, complex bitterness. Dark and bitter chocolate, coffee, some notes of smoked wood, toffee, hops. Complex beer but really balanced. Heavy, strong, sweet and bitter with a great drinkability. JulienHuxley (5807) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from the Bierkoning. Dark, black pour with receding brown foam. Aroma is roasty, molasses and anise, quite boozy. Taste is malty, lots of anise, molasses, dark chocolate, light roast, strong alcohol warmth in the finish. Palate is full bodied, light carbonation, nice coating creamy palate. Good sipper. gscratch (9) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014 does not count
Wow. I’ve had a few stunning porters in the last year, and this is certainly on the pile of the best. Strong sugar nose, earthy fruits, and a flavour that marches from the front of the tongue to the back. Sweetness, sharpness from the alcohol, to bitterness, and then a dessert like finish that ties all of those experiences together each mouthful. Truly wonderful. If I can secure another few bottles, I’ll happily let it rest a few more years! truly stunning. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Very good porter. A lot of stout notes. Aroma is sugars like brown sugar and chocolate. A sweeter beer with a thin plate but tons dessert flavors and a lite hoppy bitter finsh.
