From bottle. Black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Heavy cocolate and coffee taste. Dry finish, well balanced. Delish.

Countbeer (6286) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle: A big and loud "shhhh" when opening the bottle. No gusher but and explosive vast but with holes/gates (like cheese holes) brown head. The glass is entirely filled with this brown foam. Just one small pour and the head explosively grows again! This foam/head changes really slow, leaves a complete black beer (again with each pour a huge head). Exciting! Smell coffee, roasted coffee, roasted malts, some dark chocolate, roasted barley, some smoke and tar. Good deep dark roasty smell. Yummi! Taste is really good roasty, deep, intense. Lovely roasted coffee, good bitter, roasted malts, roasted barleys, roasted herbs, dark chocolate, chocolate bitter, hop bitter, tar, burned wood/coal, hint of (bitter) liquorice. Very tasty, very balanced! Nice roasted, bitter and herby aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a airy/creamy texture. Absolutely worth its score this beer gets on ratebeer. Complexity of many of the regular imperial stouts. Supremely balanced and Delicious with a capital D!

On tap, shared with quiznoaz. Dont get me wrong on this one. I like porters. Sometimes, but this was more of a smoked stout. Maybe. I really cant make up my mind. But you dont really care, do you?

Shared with Holy. Looks like a porter. Has a smoky flavor and bitter finish. More body than typical porters Ive had. Not bad.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
12oz bottle, bottled 11/08/11. Black color, thin tan head. Good lace. Pronounced, sharp carbonation. Very nice distinctly dark and supremely roasty finish. Some nice bitterness. Really nice to pair with my leftover Outback ribs. The carbonation is much more appreciated with a meal. Some chocolate aroma, here. Good amount of hoppiness, here. Nice dryness and drinkability. Really, a great porter. Rich is the key word here, although dark and sexy are appropriate as well.

Huge thick porter, dark brown with a beige head. Aroma has roasted fruirs and barley. Taste is thick with coffee and roasted fruits. It has smokiness and a little bitterness. Great finish.

_angst_ (4654) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012
355 ml bottle bought @ lbutikken. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a small creamy mocha head. That leaves some trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet, malty and full-bodied with roasted malts and lots of quality chocolate in it. Taste is very malty, slightly sweet and slightly bitter with roasted malts and tons of quality chocolate and coffee. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter with roasted malts and coffee. Very impressive and full-bodied for a regular porter. could drink a lot of this...

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is deep roast, liquorice, chocolate, molasses and more. Flavour is deep roasty malt which hands out a long lingering bitterness followed by sidenotes like chocolate, liquorice, etc.. Very nice.
