Pitch black appearance with no head. Tastes of dark chocolate, caramel and smoke. Heavy body, low carbonation and a finish of metallic coffee. Rather coffeey thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a opaque black brown colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was vinous and brown malt. The vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous brown malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again. minutemat (6453) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2016
500ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours extremely dark brown, thin tan head. Aroma is charred smoked malts, dark berries. Taste is complex with wondrous smoked malts, slick chocolate, berries, more woody smoke. Just a lovely Nordic porter. jamestulloch (4515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle from Bottle Baron. Black body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of smoke, coffee and plum. Flavour of berries, charred wood, brown bread, cigar and black pepper spice. Thin to medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Soft fizz. An unusual Porter - dry and smokey. obguthr (7010) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Smoky plum and tobacco. Mahogany, thin tan head. Plum skins, coffee. Smoky overtones. Charred oak finish. Velvety, medium body, astringent, easy carbonation. A bit too fruity for the style, good intensity and complexity for a 6.5 ABV beer.

Bottle @ home. Opaque dark brown to black color with a medium sized dark brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, raisins, caramel, some chocolate. Taste malts, again roasted malts, caramel, nuts, raisins, a light hint of milk chocolate, malt bitter, earthy, lightly ash, slightly smoke, nice moderate to medium bitter finish.

butelka (rozlew:05.03.14 - przeleżało ponad 2 lata) Barwa brunatna/ciemnobrązowa - jak ropa naftowa z minimalnymi rubinowymi refleksami, piana średnia, brązowa, z małym pierścieniem do końca, W aromacie sporo ciemnej czekolady, suszonych owoców - śliwek, wiśni, świetna kawa, trochę rumu, nawet popiołowo. W smaku tak samo, śliwka z kawą komponuje się wspaniale. Bardzo aksamitne piwo, wysycenie niskie - raj dla podniebienia. genialny porter z kategorii tych poniżej 8%
Jestem zachwycony jego zbalansowanym smakiem i aromatem, po 2 latach od butelkowania nadal wszystko na właściwym miejscu. ArtificialCyst (1497) - Szczecin, POLAND - FEB 28, 2016
