zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle, batch 225, shared by akevitt. Pour an opaque dark brown body with very faint tinges of red along with a cola head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and smoke with a light whiff of sourdough. Flavor is similar with a light caraway sweetness up front and notes of oak, wood, and smoke throughout the palate that compliment the cocoa and coffee flavors nicely. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft and well-carbonated. Lightly bitter finish of smoke and cocoa with a tobacco aftertaste.

JohnnyJ (5466) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Pours a thick oily black, with a thin tan head. The head diminishes to a ring around the glass. Blend of milk and bitter dark chocolate, smoke, toffee, licorice, herbs, plum, light spice, oak, and heavy creaminess. This is a very thick porter, and the herbal barrel notes are quite interesting and work well with the rest of the beer.

Flaske 0,5l - batch 225. Lavt sjokoladefarget skum som forsvant helt. Sammensatt aroma med litt kaffe og sjokolade. Innholdsrik samk: Frukt, kaffe og sjokolade. Merker knapt akevitten. En god porter.
