Tasted on June 12, 2013: Awesome aroma of chocolate and coffee. Great look, black in color. Tastes of chocolate, malt and coffee(especially in the finish). A pretty good Porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PowY (790) - AUSTRIA - AUG 10, 2017
330 ml bottle, 03.04.2019. Pours a very dark mahogany with a quickly disappearing tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malt, toasted rye bread, nuts, hints of dark fruits. Medium to full smooth body with a very low carbonation, a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is again full of roasted malt with chocolate, some caramel, nuts and toffee. Not overly complex but nicely balanced and very decent as it is.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Birthe 33cl. Aroma is toasted bread and nuts. Mild roasted taste with hazelnuts hints. Not hoppy at all and easy to drink. Very standard porter. I expected it to be more smokey.

lbianchi66 (416) - FRANCE - AUG 2, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2017 Robe noire aux reflets rouges. La mousse est beige et tient assez bien. Arômes fumé, café, fruits noirs, beurre. Goût café, chocolat, crémeux. Le fumé reste en bouche. Malheureusement un peu aqueux. Bon porter tout de même.

Aus der Flasche im 2015-01 getrunken. Schönes, aber auch einfaches Porter! Keine große Aromadichte aber dadurch recht süffig!
