Deep brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of sour malt, old blackbread, spice and roasted notes. A flavor of roasted malt and hae - a very thin and boring porter. KnutAlbert (6792) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007

A Mes rate:
Draught @ Bruxellensis. Black body, tan head, as it should be. Nice alcoholic notes with plenty dark malt and liquorice. Coffee, nuts and chocolate put in an appearance too. Maybe just a little to sweet but it is wiped away by the finish. leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2007

Draught @ Bruxellensis. Roast flavor with coffee. Rather thin. Somewhat indifferent aroma. Good, tasty beer, but nothing outstanding.
