Pitch black beer with a thin mocha, dark beige head. Looks very nice. Roastiness on the nose. Sweet baltic porter, coffee roast, medium bitter finish, very balanced, wood notes. Mouth feel is medium bodied, slick, slightly leathery. This is actually very solid and good porter. Very very nice indeed. bierkoning (13272) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013

Black, and a lovely tight tan head. Aroma is lovely smoky peaty whisky - just lovely. Beautiful roasty porter taste - nice dry woodiness. Some nice wininess in the retronasals. Finish wonderfull, dry and woody, and really dry and barky . Super drinkable, no sign of the 7% at all. As it warms, it even fills out, and the woodiness and barky bitterness builds up - don’t drink this too cool, let it warm.

Lovely rich roasty aroma. Loveely tarriness to the taste. Full palate. Still utterly delicious.
Bottle. Very dark brown, large and mostly lasting light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt, light coffee, light vanilla/oak, faint hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel with some roasted malt, light coffee, light vanilla and light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel, some roasted malt - light coffee, some vanilla and light bitterness. X-Porter with twist of oak chips (and therefore less bitterness): "Create a hype - oak it".
