UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 Bottle. Average carbonation. Prominent burnt coffee aroma and flavor, followed by solid chocolate and malt flavors. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter finish. Not as punchy in flavor as the best of the porters, but still quite flavorful and satisfying. The bonus is 6% ABV, which is about as much of a good thing that you need. Overall, more of a drinking beer than a tasting beer. One of my faves!

smroush (227) - Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Very dark brown, nearly black, beer with a light tan, sparse head. Aromas of roasted coffee and chocolate. Hops provide a generalized bitterness. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium to somewhat full body; oily/creamy texture; average carbonation; finish is long with coffee and chocolate. Overall a pretty good Porter; I like the chocolate and coffee flavors though its not especially complex.

dambor (500) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2016
Pours dark with medium head. Aroma: a burst of chocolate and coffee, some raisins, vanilla, dark fruit and of course raosted malt. Taste: chocolate and coffee dominate, making this beer compley but at the same time drinkable. Great.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours very dark brown colour with a mid-sized creamy good lasting beige head. Aroma of dark roasted malt and coffee. Taste of dark roasted malt, coffee, some bitter hops, tons of vanilla in the aftertaste, nice stuff!

Erzengel (8028) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2016
Many thanks to my "Santa 2015" jsquire for this bottle! The beer starts malty and dry. Very intense dry with a great dry caramel and chocolate aroma. Moderate bitterness, soft, round and fresh. Intense aftertaste with dry roasted caramelly malts and espresso with a great full and rich body. Fantastic.

5 oz sample at a tasting. Pours a nice dark brown with small bubbly head. Aroma was baking chocolate, coffee, roast malts, and some vanilla. Flavor follows the nose perfectly and is nicely balanced out. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, and a nice bold finish with bitterness from the hops. Solid porter.

cwill (73) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Jet black pour, but holding onto light at the bottom of the glass is a deep, ruby red. Creamy, milk-white head with nice lacing. Aromas of burnt coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. The taste is not as sweet as the nose; coffee, bitter chocolate, and nutty pine, with bitter finish, but has a nice slight sweet after taste as it warms. Creamy, medium-bodied porter with a pleasant mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice American Porter

Sampled from a bottle at The Tilted Kilt S Wabash Avenue. Dark brown/black with a beige head. Lots of chocolate and and coffee in the taste and flavours of vanilla and sarsaparilla. This is a rich and tasty porter. Highly drinkable.

Im not big on porters, but this is definitely one Id recommend to others. Its flavorful and its not overpowering. Its kind of scary looking at first, because it pours so dark, but the flavor doesnt smack you in the mouth. Its just not a beer to drink in big sips.
