Bottle from Archer Liquor. Pours pitch black with a massive brown head and a huge chocolate aroma. It took a while to pour this one, but once the head subsided a bit, I dove in. Well, it’s really full of chocolate, with a smooth dry bitter chocolate finish and a little carbonation. It’s a pleasure to drink, and serves as a dessert as well as a beer.

Bottle at Strømcph in Enghave Parken while listening to Four Tet. Black - brown head. Roasted. Chocolate. Fruity. Light hoppy. Sweetness. Dark bread. Smooth body. A bit boring. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle courtesy GT. Viscous, shiny black beer with a sharply carbonated brown head. Aroma is dark roasted (almost slightly smokey) malt with bitter chocolate and maybe some slight expresso notes. Layered chocolate and malt taste with the smoothest transition down into the creamy finish (touch of caramel?) - nothing out of place. Such a treat to drink a big tasting, stunning beer that’s only 6.5% - huge respect to the skill of the brewery. Cybercat (5877) - Georgia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 The sample I got fizzed like crazy, so have a towel handy if opening a bottle! It pours a beautiful midnight sable with a very thick, fluffy, persistent tan head. Smoky, oily aroma has tones of molasses, caramel and fine coffee. Rich flavor has firm smoky overtone and coffee, nutty, molasses and caramel components as well as a hint of hop bitterness. Texture is smooth with a subtle fizz and leaves a nice smoky and slightly sweet finish. chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Black pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee and tastes similar with slight licorice sweetness. Thick yet drinkable, great example of style.

Pours a deep, deep brown, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee and tastes more of the same. Great balance and extremely drinkable. This is the best porter I have had to date.
