Visibility zero. Dark and with light brown head. Caramel nose with lots of sweetness and almost dried fruit. Taste is fruity and slight dry although still with sweetness. Some coffee and cocoa to top it off. Very rich in regards of the low ABV and impressive. Lots of taste and hanging on in the palate as well. martjoobolut (4486) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2017

Reviewed from notes.
Thanks Greg for the bottle.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a mostly black color with a nice two finger white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Some lace, slightly speckled.
The aroma had some roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, slight smoke, slight brown sugar.
The flavor blended the previously mentioned aromas together - roasty, sweet and subtle smoke. All leads into the aftertaste and bled into the finish.
The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a touch above with a nice soft carbonation about it. ABV felt good.
Overall, nicely done porter well worthy of having again. tfredvik (1985) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2017
Close to black body with a rather small, short-lived, light brown head that almost disappears completely without leaving much lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, and ash in the back. Strong flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, ash and rum, with brown sugar in the back. Hm, ashy chocolate that is both dry and sweet, that’s a new one! Moderate sweet taste with a light to moderate bitter finish. Close to full body, smooth texture, soft carbonation. Enjoyable!

Bottle - Molasses and dark chocolate with some sweet roast. Jet black with a decent white head. Dark roast, toasted cocoa and some molasses. Dark and sweet. 90 (514) - BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2017
Weinig aroma. In de smaak lichte caramel en geroosterde granen. Zeer zachte (de benaming silk klopt) en cleane mondgevoel. Misschien iets te zacht. Ik mis het weerhaakje. De afdronk is zeer zacht.
