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. high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
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.

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.

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!
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 (3215) - 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 (I’ll take credit for that part). Very subtle chocolate taste. I’m quite pleased with this porter, and is one of the better ones that I have tried. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle. It’s 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 there’s 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
