UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Transparently black, small head. Concentrated aroma of licorice and black currant. Dryish with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Crisp and very flavourful with notes of aniseed and plums. Finishes with medium bitterness. I really like the concentration of flavours in such a relatively light beer.

(Bottle) Pours clear dark red/brown. Light roasted, rusty aroma with chocolate. A bit milky. Honey sweetness. Salty liquorice hints with some saltwater/seafood. Good balance between the sweetness and the cocoa dryness in flavour. A bit peppery. Silky body. A dreambeer for those who likes beers that dosent stand out. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2006
From a 12 oz. bottle with a bottled on date along the right side of label.
Poured a dark brown with a foamy, semi-creamy pale head that settled into a thin bubbly lacing, minimal amount of ringed, laced sticking.
Aromas of roasted chocolate malts, grainy and earthy with a subtle fruitiness.
Good carbonation and a malty crisp, dry, creamy medium bodied mouthfeel.
Tastes of roasted chocolate malty with light touches of caramel, an earthy hoppiness, a light sweet dark fruitiness and a dry grainy, malty finish.
Not a bad porter from Left Hand, nice drinkability on a cold, rainy midwestern fall night.

Bottle. Light sour roasted malt aroma. Dark ruby-brown body with short-lived light brown head. Cloying taste seemingly built around artificial sweetner and a hint of roast. Lightly sour. Caramel but no bitterness or hops. Medium body aspires to oiliness. Dry aftertaste allows, finally, for some degree of appreciation of the roast. Eh.
