Gangstergafje (749) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2016
The beer sure looks like a mean porter. The color of the bear is pitch black on the eye. Een with a strong light, a ruby red glow barely shows. The beer pours a nice layer of rather rough almond coloured foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a little drape remains. The smell is quite mild. I smell some dark toasty notes of roasted barley, chocolate and coffee. It’s a pitty that the smell isn’t stronger, because the mild smell that is there is lovely. The taste is better, but it is not the best tasting porter ever. There are some distinct toasty flavours. I taste delicious roasted barley, coffee and a dark chocolate flavour. There is also a nice alcohol flavour and nice hop notes. The balance is nice. Al the aromas and flavours are just a little to watery.

nuplastikk (5840) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2016
11.2oz bottle. Brown-black body, thin beige head. Pronounced sweet chocolate and roast malt aroma. Easy and smooth on the palate, really nails the style. Some balancing bitterness, but even more smooth, sweet chocolate. Excellently balanced, well done.

mrjaxson (506) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Chocolate and coffee both released in the aroma after pouring from a bottle to a nicely foam-filled head. Body has an outstanding medium weight to it and the finish has just a spark of bitterness. An excellent porter.
