3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of raisins, roasted malts, and hints of smoke. Pours a deep black with a quickly dissipating tan head and no lacing. The taste is dark fruit, chocolate, with a roasted coffee bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I really liked the strong raisin taste combined with the coffee bitterness. Excellant.
500 ml bottle

When browsing the clearance aisle during a beer run I found this for $3.49. Figuring it couldnt be that bad I bit. Overall the price was right. Im not sure I would have been willing for pay much more than that for a middle of the road porter. Your mileage may vary though if you come across a lone bottle.
Aroma / Appearance - A fluid black base soaks up the light. Eventually the beige head settles down to a light dusting. Spiced black coffee, malt, and black raspberry lend credence to the medium body. Chocolate malt balls wrap it nicely.
Flavor / Palate - Truffles, black coffee, and oily textures make the trek across the palate into a chewy bitter finish. The long lasting bite could be better balanced. Overall though it does everything it says on the side of the bottle.

Bottle at home (2016-02-11). Pours dark with an offwhite head, chunks of yeast toward the end of the bottle. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, salty liquorice. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, roasted malts, coffee, salty liquorice, hint of chocolate, roasted aftertaste. Not bad. dmctaster (104) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Dark brown with a dark khaki head. Aroma of coco, slight licorice, and vanilla. Tast of coco, vanilla, and slight licorce. Very fizzy likely due to age. Closer to an imperial stout than porter. koshack (2017) - Gdañsk, POLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Przyjemny aromat ciemnych słodów, nuty palone.
Później wychodzi zimna kawa. Bardzo fajne nuty palone. Lekkie nuty kawy zbożowej, ale w bardzo przyjemnej postaci.
Pachnie dość wytrawnie.
W smaku wytrawny. Przyjemne nuty kawowe.
Nie ma za dużo ciała. spodziewałem się więcej.
Alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny, pojawia się w postaci lekkiego grzania.
Przyjemne, ale nie powala.

330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 7.0%. BB date 08.11.2013. Lumpy sediment in the bottle. Cloudy and very dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, cocoa and mild coffee, hints of vanilla. The flavour is fresh and slightly fruity, fairly dry, again with notes of chocolate / cocoa, hints of vanilla and a whiff of smoke, moderate hops in the finish.

Bottle. Black pour. Nice aroma of soft creamy coffee, mocha and licorice. Taste of salty licorice, creamy coffee and mild roast. Nice beer, although I saw the same nasty white chunks as benzai. Benzai (16924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque dark brown color, medium sized beige head. Aroma is malts, dark malts, a hint of coffee, dark cocoa in the background. Taste malts, toasted malts, a hint of hazelnuts, again some cocoa, softly bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Also: when pouring in the second part of the bottle huge white chunks of yeast residu -I guess, but it looked like some kind of mold or fungus- came with it which looked absolutely disgusting. zvsn (2370) - ISRAEL - APR 14, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting. Deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, prunes and roasted grains. Sweet, cofee, cocoa, mocha, toasted bread, sourish note. Medium-bodied, smooth. Nice.
