Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Thick black dark tan head, bitter chocolate and licorice aroma. Dark roasted malts, pine hops, and dark chocolate on the palate. More pine cone hop finish. Not as thick as the aroma would indicate but still very rich and tasty.

caesar (7028) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2011
Bottled. Opens with a huge shh, which is quite unusual for american brews. Black color, huge rocky brownish head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, slight caramelly, licorice. Slight sweet taste, medium bitter. Slight sticky palate. Bit overcarbonated, which doesnt always seem to be the case. I should try it again.

glennmastrange (2827) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of dark bread, toasted and dark bitter chocolate, light to moderate resin for the hops and earth for the yeast, with notes of charcoal, milk and tobacco. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation and finishes a little chalky and slightly dry and sticky. Deep, rich and full of flavors and aromas, this is a Porter perfect for winter evenings sipping.

12oz bottle from pushkinwow (wow!) Pours a pure black, with a small bit of head. Lots of roasty aroma. Coffee, caramel, and bitter chocolate. Oily and bitter. This is terrific. I dont drink a lot of porter, but if I could get this. I would.

williamherbert (1531) - Syracuse, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 Cigarette ashes. Opaque pitch black/brown; cardboard brown head, slushy, minimal lace. Slick oily feel, ashy feel. Caramel and toffee malt. Sweeter than expected. Dusty in the nose; beautifully balanced between the chalky nuttiness and a sweet caramel balance.

This beer to me is very dark, rich, and delicious. This beer was the deciding factor into which style of beer was my favorite. If you like porters, this one will treat you really nice :)

Boutip (6271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a nice thick foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate is quite powerful and interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some black chocolate notes with medium roasted malt notes though the overall mix is balanced by just enough sweetness. Body is full and has a super nice creamy texture with good carbonation. Very well brewed and something I wouldnt mind having on a regular basis.

Very complex porter. Love the texture and smoothness. Rich yet drinkable. If you like porters its one of my favorites.

Det hr r en god porter dr smaken prglas frmst av mrk choklad och lite kaffe. Jag tycker mig kunna knna lite humle i aromen vilket knns mrkligt eftersom maltigheten tar ver smaken p len och dr kan jag inte knna ngon som helst nyans av humle. Dessutom kan jag knna en liten nyans av syra, men det r chokladen som gr det strsta jobbet hr.
