I am not an expert but I recognised it fast as a great porter. At first it is pretty sweet (chockolade and coffe are dominant). The aftertaste is bit like a dark chocolate - cocoa tasted and dry - but not too much (you do not need water after taking a sip). Rask0lnikov (1609) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark brown colour. Beige modest head disappears quite quickly. Caramel, hints of cocoa and some sourness in the aroma. Caramel at first. Dark chocolate and cocoa nibs in the middle. Plesently dry finish. Cocoa and dark chocolate. Slight alcohol and caramel in the aftertaste. Rather heavy bodied, quite well balanced beer. Beautifully aged. Was more than six months in a cellar. rosenbergh (12013) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
