UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with a trace of fizzy, tan head around the rim. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, espresso, earthy hops, figs and other dark fruit, vanilla, and light oak. Flavor is roast malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; chocolate undertones throughout with a dry, coffee finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Beer #4 at the Mondial de la Bière 2012 (June 8), bottle. Black, small head. Aroma of roasted barley malt, lots of coffee. Slightly bitter taste of coffee, some fruit notes, good bitterness. A good drinkable porter! Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle pour. Dark tab head. Dark body. Medium carbonation and body. Aroma is of toffee and chocolate. Taste confirms, mostly chocolate and coffee. ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2012
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pour is deep cola with two big fingers of deep khaki foam that left a nice show on the glass. Nose is big roasted malt, coffee, and a bit of toffee. Taste is right on with the nose, but delivered in an uber creamy fashion with some raisin flavor that wasn’t apparent in the nose. This is a fantastic porter that I’ve somehow missed up until I picked up this variety case. RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle poured a dark cola with a small tan head that dissapated quickly and minimal lacing. Aroma is big on roasted coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder, and hints of raisin. First sip begins with bold coffee and roasted malt flavor followed by bittersweet chocolate and cocoa. Extremely well-balanced flavors that led to a smooth finish with smoke and slight bitterness lingering to play with the palate. Truly enjoyable porter.

Pours a deep black with a short brown head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, with a bit of coffee. The flavor is chocolate up front, with the coffee showing up afterwards along with a bit of hop spiciness and a smooth body.

Opaque black beer, thick foamy light tan head. Toasted malt nose. Semi dry palate that is quite silky. Lightly toasted malt, a little creamy as well. An odd touch of glue is a distraction before unsweeet dark chocolate and a splash of espresso present. Could be decent but the glue is a real turn off.
Pours deep dark umber color with subtle aromas of burnt coffee, earth and hints of chocolate. On the palate it comes through with rich bubbles and roasted malty flavors; chocolate, coffee, leaves, blueberry and a rich bitterness on the finish.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Roasty malted aroma with some chocolate lingering. Full bodied porter with chocolate and roasty malted taste with some hoppy bitterness on the finish. An excellent porter. laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2012

Aroma has some dark chocolate, coffee and distant notes of berries typical to danish ales. Flavour has chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Good, but I expected more.
35,5 cl bottle @ home
Sweetish aroma with cocoa, some dark chocolate, distant sewer aromas and hints of metal. Flavour has deep roasted notes, chocolate and malty notes with a feeling of oat. Also some licorice tones do occur. Finishes somewhat hoppy with coffee. Now we’re talking!
