Shared with Holy. Looks like a porter. Has a smoky flavor and bitter finish. More body than typical porters I’ve had. Not bad. Porterguy41 (19) - - FEB 4, 2012
Love this stuff, has a nice thick head, smooth rich flavor. An all around good beer. 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. ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
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_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012
355 ml bottle bought @ Ölbutikken. 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. Onslow (1513) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Inky dark brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, some cocoa. Taste is coffee and sweet malts at the start, with a bit of cocoa and cofee in the finish. A little dryness in the finish. Very nice and very good. wlajwl (6951) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Aroma is coffee, dark roasted malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is coffee, a pretty good amount of cocoa in the middle and a decent hoppiness in finish. In all areas, this was a great porter. mcmisko (358) - New York, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Pours a rich brown color with a almond color head. Rich toasty flavors with some bright hops light roasted coffee. Feels warm. One of the better porters I’ve had. MAFountain (19) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12oz bottle to a Duvel tulip. This is my favorite porter to date. The aroma is roasted malts, and a hint of cocoa. Appearance dark black, thin mocha head, and decent lacing. Taste is roasted malts, with chocolate, and coffee notes. The palate for this is medium-bodied, with a dry finish. Overall it’s an exceptional porter. I would call it my go to porter if it was available here. Quality.
