0,33l bottle at home from my Secret Santa Lowenbrau, big thanks. BB 09/2017. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells of coffee, some roast, bitter chocolate, earthy, lightly lactic, spices, quite nice creamy smell. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes roasted, earthy, caramel, coffee, ash, a bit harsh bitter coffee notes, bitter chocolate, a bit soapy even. finishes quite dry with some herbal bitterness, some ashy notes and some coffee. Aftertaste of ash and coffee and herbs stings a bit on the tongue. Overall quite good stuff, lovely smell, as said taste and also finish is a bit harsh, overall nice and still drinkable though.

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 4, 2015
Mitja pinta de barril a la fira de cervesa poblenou. Color marró fosc amb escuma amarronada (manté bé la seva capa). L’aroma evoca dolçor, és com regalèsia o maltes dolces. A la boca ja hi trobem malta torrada, tocs de café i chocolata. Una mica de llúpol també. Cos mig tirant a lleuger, bona carbonatació. Segueix bastant bé la línia de l’estil, suaveta però bona.

Ulysse (482) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
Rather strong roast aroma for a porter. Alcohol is well tamed in this brew. A bit earthy and sticky.
