Bottle thanks to Matt7215. Pours a dark brown with small dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of earthy bitterness. Flavor matches well, but I just don’t get much maple syrup. Not my cup of tea.

Pours black color with a large beige head. Chocolaty aroma, some cocoa, roasted malts, faint syrup tones, subtle hops and caramel. Flavor is also chocolaty sweet, slightly milky at that, dry cocoa notes, lots of bitterness and malty roastiness. not so much syrup on the flavor. Slightly too thin body here, otherwise okay.

Opaque colour, small steady beige head. Aroma is toasted malty, even a bit ashy. Medium-bodied. Sweetish flavour, glucose but maybe from maple syrup. Toasted and ashy, hints of licorice. Ok porter.

Draft at Brody's, The Hague. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of toast, chocolate, woody notes, maple, caramel and malt. Flavour is above moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Taste is a little sweet and a little bitter with notes of chocolate, coffee, woody maple, and roasted malt contributing to the overall impression of chocolate cake. A very unique brew with all flavours very well integrated. My only complaint is it’s a bit heavy. artemb (1292) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUL 16, 2017

Flavour: more roasted, then burned, cold coffee, chocolate cake.
Good and smooth. Lowe1983 (1656) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Pours a black color with a light tan head. Aroma is smoky with chocolate, roasted malts, and some maple. Flavor want quite as good. Smoky up front but watery on the finish. After taste of the roasted malts and chocolate. harrylt (14) - - JUN 1, 2017

Dark brown, nearly black pour - small but persistent tan head. Fairly mild aroma - some coffee, roastiness, baked sweetness. Taste is medium-bodied porter - brown sugar, chocolate, faint leafy hop in the finish. Pretty smooth in the mouth but rather sticky. Pretty good.
