Bland dark pour w/ nearly no head or lacing. The aroma screams booze w/ a side of liqourrice & dark chocolate. The taste is quite unique for a porter. The alcohol dominates the flavor which is a bit odd at only 7%. Possibly worth a try for the porter lovers but not the greatesr in my book! blackisle (2810) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle 33cl. (bbd 02-2016). Poured into a shaker. Clear deep ruby brown, good two finger frothy beige to tan head, good retention and lacing; strong coffee aroma, roasted malts, cocoa, light licorice; taste is medium sweet and bitter, roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate, with average to long duration; roasty sweetbitter finish, bit smoky, light spicy notes, hint of alcohol; medium body, oily texture, smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation; a well-balanced and smooth porter, good quality. Contains lumpy residue which is a pity because there is less beer to enjoy, wish I’d bought a couple more since this one seems to be retired.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Butelka. Barwa ciemna, czarna, praktycznie nieprzejrzysta. Piwo nalewa się z bardzo dużą ilością pływającego "syfu". Piana średniej wysokości podczas nalewania. Znika dość szybko. Aromat mleczny, czekolada mleczna. W smaku podobnie. Przewaga mleka w postaci kawy i czekolady. Można doszukać się ciemnych słodów. Finisz lekko zalegający, kwaśny. Wysycenie niewysokie, odczuwalne. Goryczka znikoma. Jak na portera dosyć dziwna interpretacja. Przypomina bardziej milk stouta. Nie smakowało mi. Stuu666 (14805) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours black, nose is toffee, chocolate, sugary, taste is sweet, roasted, chocolate, burnt toffee.
