rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2014
Sample at Nordic Brew 2014, Fredrikshavn, Denmark. Black beer with a decent beige head. Cocoa powder aroma, milk chocolate, caramel, roasted, licorice, some soot. Roasted cocoa powder flavor, chocolate, caramel, coffee notes. Good but a bit too much focus on the cocoa powder.

It pours black with a medium bodied tan head. There are aromas of espresso, coffee, and a tinge of sweet chocolate. There is a complex mix of espresso and chocolate. It has a sweet-bitter combination on the way down.

"simply put...a huge surprise and one of the best American porters out there. big chocolatey aroma and flavor, a ton of roasted malt, and enough hops in the back to notice, all without being a huge ABV beer. Well done! had it on N2 and Co2...great both ways but on nitro...holy crap!"

9/11/14. Bomber from Colin. Pours black w a tinge of red with a two finger mocha head. Chocolate and fruit in the nose. Wonderful dark cherry and chocolate flavor notes. Thick mouthfeel that belies the light alcohol. A stout in my book but a great beer in any case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (10289) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Pours dark brown, almost black color with a large beige head. Malty and dark chocolaty aroma, some faint coffee notes as well as some citric fruity notes. Chocolaty and toasted malty flavor, faint cocoa with some caramel notes. Strong carbonation, somewhat bitter and dry palate, a bit thin body. Nice, but I was expecting a bit more.

ShivanDragon (4120) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
65cl, schenkt zwart met bruine kraag. aroma komt héérlijk binnen, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, chocolade en koffie. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, zwak bitter, redelijk sterke gebrande en geroosterde mouten zoals een goede porter deze heeft en stervige koffie en chocolade. Ook deze porter is aan de droge kant. zwakke body, vrij dun van textuur, en lage co2, afdronk wat droog. redelijk

StevieT (2013) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown like a cola, creamy tan head, lovely sweet chocolate aroma, rich roasted flavour and not overly thick. A great porter I could drink a lot of.

22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a nice looking mocha colored head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, a thin layer of burnt malts, some chocolate and a sliver of molasses. The taste starts sweet with malts and quickly leads into dark roasted malts and sweet caramel malts, chocolate and a light molasses like note. Into the finish I get more of a pleasing chocolate sensation coming to the surface adding to the interest and depth. Nice.
