355 ml bottle at home. Pours a nearly black, deep mahogany with a tan colored head. The aroma is very roasty, coffee, cocoa, toffee, nuts, hints of burnt notes - very rich aroma. Medium soft body, with a soft carbonation, a light sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is again dominated by the roasted malt - lots of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, hints of dried fruits. Finishes with quite some roasty bitterness and lots of coffee and coffee grounds. Overall very roasty with lots of coffee - really nice flavors and great balance.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 Bottle from a Beer Hawk selection case. Black and Tan with a pleasing, plummy, chocolate and malt aroma. Tastes dry and smoky with mocha and a bitter aftertaste. ippopotamo36 (2677) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 11, 2018
Tap at Luppolo Station in Rome. Black pour with a frothy brownish foam. Nose: powdered barley with highlights of caramel far away and licorice root. Mouth: I expected a sweet porter...no way. It is a classical porter, easy, bitter, not watery but rich of burnt maltiness although clean. The aftertaste is row burnt malts. Lovely Kronhjort1996 (126) - Århus C, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2018

Taste of chocolate, caramel, slight roasted malts, a little tobacco, a hint of fruit and subtle coffee. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A dryish, slightly warming, chocolate bitterness in the finish. A really well made and well rounded porter. The description is spot on, enjoyed this. MeadTeam9 (67) - - FEB 4, 2018
Robe d'un noir profond, mousse crémeuse et légèrement brune. Nez sur le chocolat, la cerise à l'alcool. En bouche, c'est le café qui domine. A déguster au coin du feu et entre amis ! GregMooreNH (385) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2018
