KnutAlbert (6746) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle, EBF, Copenhagen. Maybe I had had too many good beers beforehand. This came out as thin, watery, a ghost of a porter instead of the real thing. Sweet, bland, boring.

douglas88 (8754) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Brought from Dunedin by Andrew, thanks man I owe you. Pours a dark cherry color with a very hug beige head. A heavy sour and burnt aroma. A very smooth and full mouthfeel. The taste was mostly a interesting burnt malt and roasted chocolate mix, followed by a bitter soapy finish. Some light coffee also. Very nice. Smooth and easygoing.

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 22, 2008
500mL Bottle. Black beer with a slight red glow to it. Small light brown head that was short lasting. The beer description on the bottle sums up the beer quite well "Roasty Malty Bitter Dark Ale". The beer has a roasty malt taste then a smooth malt/hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
