finol (3450) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle at Knut Bar. Pours black with a big tan head. Nice chocolatey porter, very drinkable for the abv.

PowY (908) - AUSTRIA - DEC 6, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a light brown creamy head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt and slightly buttery with dark chocolate. Medium watery body with a light to medium carbonation. Medium to heavy bitterness with a light sweetness and a little sour. The taste is dominated by heavily roasted malt - burnt coffee and brown sugar. A little unbalanced.

daje (4436) - NORWAY - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle, november 8th 2015. Black body with a small tanned head. Arima of milk chocolate, malt, sweet candy. Taste of cold coffee, licorice, bitter hops. Thin bodied with a watery finish, mild coffee aftertaste.

Flaskan skvallrar om att den här portern gärna ska flasklagras. Om det är ett försök att med hängsel- och livremmetoden undkomma kritik och mindre bra recensioner genom beskylla konsumenten för att ha hällt i sig ölet för tidigt ska vi kanske låta vara osagt, men risken är ju att det är precis det jag nu kommer att få höra när jag säger: "Det är en del som fattas här...förmodligen lagring."

Peter_L (1246) - SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska från SB. Svart vätska med kaffefärgat skum. Fruktiga dofter med en stor bit choklad. Definitivt röda bär i smaken. Mjuk och len. Långt avslut.

Nice black body with a fine beige head. Ok coffee, roasted and mild chocolate aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Pleasant flavor. Dominant coffee. Some chocolate and mild nice roasted. Good porter!

(backlog) Draft. Black pour with brown head. Body is a bit thin, some light roasted and malt tones, sweet and bitter. Aroma was lighter than expected.

fonefan (49999) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2014

Clear dark black brown colour with a average to large, frothy, goodr lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, light chocolate. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, roasted, burnt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130830]

Ernest (7746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2013
2013 bottle at Akkurat. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, brown, fully lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, black bread), with notes of smoke, juniper, cassis, tar, leather, minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I’ve always been a bit more partial to Belgian and Scandinavian porters/stouts (compared to British/American ones), as they often have some spine-tingling aromas not commonly found elsewhere...and this is a great example of one that you’d never, ever find in the States (which seems to be content with the straightforward roast-choco-vanilla-hoppy odors for 90% of renditions). Extremely complex nose with just about everything I crave...smoke, minerals, berries...just jaw-dropping, really (and reminds me of Haand’s stouts/porters as well). Substantial tartness in the mouth, which I usually don’t like in dark beers, but here it’s as if berries were actually used, so it complements rather than clashes (see also Harvey’s Imperial, Moa Imperial, etc.). And it has just the right weight/body to be remarkably drinkable but still provide richness...no syrupy character whatsoever, and mild finishing sweetness, so it’s like a session beer with more character and presence. This is a tricky balancing act that is rare to find, but even if you turn off the nitpicky critical side of your brain, it’s very easy to love carelessly. Absolutely a 4+ rendition any way you slice it.
