Bulk_Carrier (5917) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 15, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one finger off white to tan foamy head that dissipated ever so slowly. Clingy semi-foamy lacing rings around the glass. The smell takes on roasty cocoa and coffee beans. Light caramel tones slide in underneath. The taste is roasty and sweet through a nice combination of the cocoa and coffee. Bitter and sweet with a nice robust figure of warmth laying down on my tongue in the aftertaste. Quick roasty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice carbonation about it. Roastiness kicks in on the feel making it slightly dry. Overall, Id say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.

malrubius (2835) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle from Brewfest. Black with lasting tan head and lace. Earthy mildly spicy and smoky and chocolate chip cookie aroma. Medium chocolatey roasted caramel sweetness with mild dark fruit and spicy dry finish enhanced by lively fine carbo. Medium body. Delicious and sessionable even at a relatively high abv. Should be drunk warmer than I am having it though.

rosenbergh (11460) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
22 oz bottle. Bottled 08/13/15. Courtesy of olio. Black color with a small tan head. Licorice, dark malt and some dryness in a mild aroma. The flavor is dark malt, licorice, mild bitterness and dryness. A bit fizzy. I'm a bit disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (10018) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 03.08.2015.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, licorice, dark chocolate and faint vanilla notes. Flavor is chocolate and vanilla, accompanied by licorice and roasted malts. Dry malty palate, short dry finish too. Pleasant and quaffable, a bit too light, I like the licorice though.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2017 Bomber poured in a tulip glass. Pours black with a thin mocha brown head with a bit of lacing. Chocolate aroma, vanilla, burnt caramel, dark fruits, toffee, molasses and finishes with a black licorice note. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and slightly bitter. A very nice porter, would recommend to friends!

he brew is dark brown but still has great clarity. drapes of lace as the brew drops... Wow.. the nose on this one is fantastic .. it just smells "brown" ... chocolate ... brownie batter ... deep caramel essence ... great malt profile without too much hop presence messing up a good thing. Flavor begins with a nice dark malt bite.. chocolate/carob... lite coffee and roasty malt.. a bit of malt sweetness makes the roast components linger for a bit.. long lasting finish.. almost like a liqueur.. Body is medium and nicely coating.. sorta lighter carbonation lends to a higher drinkability with the overall brew... I dig this one for sure.
