NEAR BLACK DARK BROWN PORTER WITH A TAN THICK BUBBLY HEAD. NICE BUT NOT MUCH CHOCOLATE STOUT LIKE AROMA . TASTES LIKE A BUBBLY CHOCOLATE/COFFEE STOUT, 9+ ALC CONTENT IS NICELY MASKED VERY SMOOTH AND SLIGHTLY BITTER, GOOD BREW, GOOD JOB GUYS AT FLYING DOG BUT NOT QUITE ENOUGH TO MATCH UP WITH THE LEADING "DOG" IN THE GAME.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2017 Pretty dry. Rye, charcoal, raisins, dark chocolate, subtle hint of amarena. There?s a present bitterness but it?s balanced with the other flavours. Skvader (163) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2012
Gives a nice light brown head which only remains as a haze throughout. Aroma has dark chocolate and wood. Taste is smokey and coarse yet somewhat sweet as strong coffee with brown sugar. Aftertaste is first a sharp bitterness than almonds and similar nuts. Filipbeer (163) - - NOV 4, 2016
Intense black color with beige head. Good lacing but not too long.
Interesting aroma. Sweet dry fruits are dominant in nose, however coffee, smoky and tobacco are the most intense notes in mouth.
Top flavor. Really intense bitter taste, compensated by the sweetness from the alcohol and a full body. Very long lasting.
This beer is like a beast. To drink it is a completely recomendable experience Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Pours deep black with good head retention. Can smell the roasted malts well on the nose. Dark and smooth on the tongue, not much carbonation but good amount of mouthfeel.

Thick, creamy palate and a toasted, coffee taste. Super enjoyable beer. Fabulous mouthfeel stands out along with the heavy, toasted, creamy chocolate/coffee taste. jamvin23 (162) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark with a dark head. Aroma: some chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor: hops, roasted malts with a mild coffee finish. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a black with a tan head. Little chunks of something floating? Aroma of chocolate. This is an interesting beer because it still managers to be a porter despite the strength. Harsh bitter and ethanol on first sip but it eventually grows on you. Very good for when you want more. calm_dreamer (160) - GREECE - APR 7, 2012
Nice taste and smell. Medium to good aftertaste. Head doesn’t stay for long, alcohol is not very tastable even though it is high.great beer over all.
