Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Deep brown, nearly black with a gray & khaki tinted head that settles to a swampy skin & collar. Aroma includes heavy roast, grass, mild ash, light bittersweet cocoa, & some very mild molasses in the finish. Taste isn't as bitter as expected but is still quite roasty. Roasted malt, light cocoa, mild ash, grassy & herbal hops mid-palate with a dry-roasty & faintly sweet aftertaste. Honey pulls through just *barely* in the finish, but it's there. Pretty nice porter.
Sample tube from the dregs run. Pours black with a thin beige head. Aromas of chocolate and hazelnuts. Taste is sweet, quite rich, more chocolate and a nutty finish Stuu666 (13399) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2017

Pours dark red, almost black color with a small off-white head. Very strong aroma here, honey sweetness, nutty notes, toffee, cocoa and coffee. Flavor is bitter malty, cocoa, coffee notes, mild honey sweetness. Okay but the honey slightly disturbs at the end, slightly too burnt too.

Bodied. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, hocolate, molasses, darkcoffee and a little pine. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry with bitter notes. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Porter indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 ciocanelu (2532) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Really dark brown color. Aroma has roasted malt, a bit of smoke and peated whiskey. Taste is really roasty, bitter, coffee beans and dark malts. Not bad at all but it’s quite one noted.
