Nice toasty aroma with no roast; nutty and British-like. Black with nice lacy tan whisps. Excellent strong porter with no burnt, stouty character and very fruity and nutty. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2008

Black colour, not much head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, strong roasted malts and also some slight stinging alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts, coffee and mild roasted notes. Aftertaste gets bigtime roasted malts meeting alcohol. Even though the alcohol hints it’s a quite nice and wellbalanced beer.

Dark ruby, almost opaque color, small head. Licorice in the nose. Very solid, tasty porter. A bit sweetish, good malt profile, some licorice and coffee. Nothing extreme here, good! I like it and reserves a title "the best non-extreme beer @EBF 2008".
Tap @ EBF 2008. Licorice in the aroma. Salty, malty roasted flavor with licorice. Soft velvety finish with licorice and honey. Beer5000 (6731) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2008
