From bottle at Stone Bistro, 1999, thanks to Greg Koch. Pours black with a beautiful tan head. Smooth roasted chocolate malty aroma. Flavour continues this with a smooth chocolate presence and light roasted malt flavour. The roasted flavour lasts into the far finish.

A brown-black beer with a brown head. The aroma is primarily of chocolate, but also with hints of coffee. The flavor contains notes of roasted malt, lots of chocolate on a dry background. A nice porter.

Post Borefts I Invasion of Fonefan and Charlottes room tasting! Opaque black porter. Good carbonation and a semi dry palate. Rich dark malt, slightly toasty and a somewhat bitter. An interesting contrast to the high carbonation! Finishes crisp!

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle 65 cl. Comes as "Full Sail Imperial Porter" at 7% ABV. Pours black with a warm orange hue and a dense, creamy light brown head. Intense aroma of roasted malt and a little licorice. Medium body, hard roasted malt and some licorice. Somewhat oxidized with a tired mouthfeel. Light malt bitterness. A little over the top I believe. 110709

Bottle shared in London - sourced in the US. Aged a few years. Pours black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Strong ashy roast in the nose, baking cocoa. Light sweet flavour with strong ashy bitterness, dried old leather, scorched earth. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with more ashy character, burnt wood, scorched earth, burnt marshmallows, baking cocoa. Good stuff.

mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
650mL bottle, pours black with a tan head. Despite this not being aged, the nose gives off a noticeable bourbon scent, wood, roasted malt and a bit of licorice. Flavour of rich roasted malt, dark espresso, charred / burnt malts and peat. Most wonderful.
