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 weíre talking!
Bottle. Poured black with a tan head. Big aromas of milk chocolate, roast, nut, and coffee. The flavor found roast, chocolate, and coffee. Medium body and a roast/coffee aftertaste. Chudwick (3181) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAY 31, 2012
12oz bottle - pours black with little brown head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee. Flavor adds grassy hops. A little sweet, but mainly bitter. quite dry to the lips and full bodied. Sweet aftertaste of a fruity nature. A tad too roasty for me quite like dark/bitter chocolate and hence I would pair this with raspberry-coulis chocolate cake. hypn0toad (267) - Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Wow. This is one great porter. Not too sweet at all. Perfectly chilled (Iíll take credit for that part). Very subtle chocolate taste. Iím quite pleased with this porter, and is one of the better ones that I have tried. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle. Itís a reddish, dark, dark brown beer, topped by a small, beige head. Coffee, sweetness and hints of hops on the nose. Rather one tracked, but nice, and that goes for the flavor too. Mostly coffee and roasted malts, some chocolate blends in, and then thereís some hoppy bitterness. Roasted finish. A bit thin on the palate, medium bodied. A nice one indeed, althoug lacking a bit on complexity I think. 110930

Hell this is the bomb of all porters. It is like sex in a bottle. Absolutely righteous chocolate, espresso with a roasty finish. Yum. thorongil2 (2998) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
(bottle) clear very dark brown with small brown head; aromas of bread, roast, bit metallic; rich, balanced flavour, excellent eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Thick black body with many flavours elegantly balanced together to form a porter well worthy of the hype. Excellent stuff.

On tap at hamiltons! Deep brown color with a thick tan head. Full body with chocolate and expresso up front with slight bitter smoky finish. Similar to deschutes black butte but bolder overall, great porter! Mdsurveyor (46) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2012
The pour is black with a thin brown head. The aroma is expresso. The taste is chocolate and expresso with a bitter finish. An excellent porter and well worth the 90 minute drive it took to find it in the Mid-Atlantic.
