gertialex (11) - - JAN 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Black Coffee Colour, thin tan head that doesnt last. At the end you see elements of proteins or yeast. Aroma is roasty, burnt and woody. Medium sweet taste, roasty with subtle notes of hops. Easy to drink despite the 8% ABV. Really nice and smooth Porter.

DialSquare (4487) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2016
12oz bottle from Hops and Grapes in Hickory, NC: blackish pour, huge sturdy long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, coffee, soy. Tastes of chocolate, roasted malt, light burnt vibe, coffee, pine, citrus, dried fruit, faint tobacco, mineral, spice. Fairly substantial pine bitter. Balances all of that out somehow - impressively so. Occasional sipper for me. A small bottle was perfect share between me and the missus.

Backlog, Bottle, dark black with a really tan looking head. Smell and flavor are chocolate, coffee, wood, roasted malt, light vanilla extract, and licorice. Some nutty and complex notes as it warms up. Medium body.

Unde (923) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Oily brownish black beer with humongous head which leaves the most perfect lacing as it gently concedes. Aroma has roasted malts, coffee notes, dark chocolate. Taste has roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel sweetness and quite dry after taste with some hop flavours. Medium oily body with low carbonation. Good but not great.

MelvinKalksma (1110) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been stronger and the palate thicker. The taste however is nothing but perfect. Even though they are not distinct anymore, those hops still work their magic. The added sugar makes sure it is a porter instead of a stout.

Jyrsa (578) - - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle from Alko, only rated at 8% ABV. Pours black with strong chocolate head. Licorice, coffee, some alcohol. Chocolate, roast malt, licorice, coffee. Quite bitter, with sticky and oily palate. A great porter and deceptively easy to drink for the ABV.
