Bottle shared by daknole like a beer pimp -- thanks!! Pours roasted black with a trim ring of brown foam. Smells of lactose, peppermint, and cocoa -- very inviting. Tastes of espresso, milk cocoa, sweet malts, oak, and booze. This beer fucking ROCKS. I have no idea what’s going on with the ratings -- perhaps some bottles are infected??

Batch 225. 10% ABV. This beer made me drive 600 km to clear out 8 different stores for this brilliant stuff. The later batches fell to 9% ABV and the remake down to 6% ABV. Chickens....
Pours black with a large creamy beige head. Extreme strong and complex aroma of coffee,chocolate, brown sugar, prunes, wood, spice and some sweetness. Flavor is very complex of the same, full bodied, very creamy mouthfeel. This is one of those beers that you could just enjoy the aroma of for an hour before tasting it. Just two left in my cellar :-( magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Toni from Erzbierschof. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of sour cherries and dark fruits with subtle hints of vanilla, and finishing with a fine roasted malt and chocolate. Tastes very tart, with dark red cherries, sourness, vanilla, and a mild bitter. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, silky and oily texture. An excellent and amazing beer.

Thanks to Markwise for this one. Aroma is cacao, carob, some slight roast and vanilla. Wood. Taste is similar with plenty of roast and sweet vanilla. Oak is written all over this one but in a mild way, giving this brew great flavors. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
This porter was special. There was a nice and chalky, earthy presence among mellow cocoa notes. In the background was a nice and oaky undertone that had a nice texture as well. Quite the beer, and a big thanks to Markwise for sharing. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle thanks to markwise.
Near black pour with lots of tan head. Aroma is great - oak, vanilla, chocolate, and roast. Slightly fruity flavor with more roast and chocolate. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
500 mL bottle from Green’s Beverages in Atlanta. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Nose is spice, slight booze, licorice, wood, slight chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor is similar. I am not sure what Aqua Vita tastes like, but it does some nice things to this porter. Flavor swells with anise, the darkest of chocolate, roast, and dark fruit. Medium to full in body with some lingering spicy licorice and dark fruit. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2012
Tried this last night and lost the notes on my computer, anyhow from what I remember, black body with decent tan head, dark chocolate and a little alcohol on the nose, mouthfilling, dark fruit coming through as well as hint of smoke.
