Pours black with a brown head. It has good head retention with good lacing. It has aromas of chocolate, some coffee, roast, and a bit of citrus. There are flavors of chocolate, coffee, roast, a bit of citrus and dried fruit. It has a moderate body on the high side with fairly high carbonation. It has a moderately bitter finish with mild alcohol warmth. Overall this is a porter with excellent combination of malts with complexity between the chocolate and roast and a surprisingly hoppy bite to it.

PowY (570) - AUSTRIA - AUG 7, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a light brown creamy head. The aroma is full of roasted malts with cacao and a nuttily-woddy note. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Could be a little bit more creamy. Light to medium sweetness and a very light bitterness and some acidic notes. Taste ofroasted malts - molasse - with some sweet berries. Nice finish with that again features the roasted malts and adds a further dimension to the beer. Very nice porter.

BlazerT (991) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Jet black with big, densed, light brown head. Medicare head retention and lacing. Nice, medium roasted malts aroma - mainly milk chocolate, cocoa and some coffee. Also somewhere in the background dried fruits, smooth toffee area, lightly smokey. Trace of booze noticable. Taste is lightly bitter, little acidic and dryish. Medium body, creamy and oily texture, average carbonation, finish is milk chocolate, lightly bitter and semi-dry. In overall nice and interesting porter. Highly drinkable, definitely worth trying.

bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours a pitch black with a nice, tan head. Aroma has raisins, smokey malts, tar, licorice, chocolate, coffee, slight ashy. Taste is sweet, very roasty, again slight ash and a quite hoppy bitter after taste. Quite a lot of caramel too. Average to low carbonation and a semi-full, oily texture.

Nonshaugen (567) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2016
50 cl, bottle fermented, batch #1599. Jet black, thick creamy brownish tan head, looks fantastic. Lovely aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich, bitter and well carbonated. Flavours of dark bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and tobacco smoke, long aftertaste. This batch was brewed quite recently, so it may benefit of ageing for a year or two.

A good pour but with no head. Molasses and dark roast malt on the nose. Chocolate and licorice with a hint of coffee and a touch of hop bitterness. Carbonation is bold. This is a nice thick bodied beer that is well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
