AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2007
Opaque, absolutely black with a thick, brown head (too dark historically). Beautiful sweetness and soft, dark fruit coupled with some fresh brewed coffee in the background. This beer is screaming that it is an imperial stout already. Flavor has the malt/hop balance of an english brown porter with its seductive, soft palate and solid bitterness that promotes drinkability. Good, dark fruit flavor combines with a touch of sweetness, some unroasty, dark malt flavors (this is good) and a smack of bitterness that shows itself profoundly then allows the yeast and malt to shine into a lengthy finish. After drinking this I was highly anticipating their Imperial Stout.

Bottle pour into tulip glass from Redstone Liquors. Appearance is virtually opaque black (dark brown with light source directly behind), light sparkle at the edge of the glass, ephemeral cap of light brown head and trace lacing. Aroma is strong roasted malt, toffee, dark fruit, vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, molasses, mild dark fruit, vanilla. Palate is light bodied with thin, silky smooth texture, soft carbonation and bittersweet, dry finish. Overall, strong flavor and aroma while maintaining a nice balance between sweet and bitter. Very good.

Good flavour and depth of flavour. Good sized amount in the bottle and the first sip has a burst of flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a huge foamy head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma. Flavour is very much the same, a total delight of a porter.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Server den med bacon, kniv og gaffel og den ville være en perfekt aftenmad. Forstår ikke helt hvorfor jeg drikker Guiness når en god porter er så guddommelig :)

saintbase2 (458) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Barwa czarna z ciemnobrązowymi przebłyskami. Piana obfita (ledwo mieści się w szkle), drobnopęcherzykowa, koloru écru. Gęsto oblepia szkło w chwili opadania, po paru chwilach redukuje się do cienkiego kożuszka, do końca pozostaje małą wysepką i pierścieniem przy szkle. Lacing średni. Aromat kakaowy, gorzkiej czekolady, w tle lekkie nuty palone. Smak słodkawy, następnie suszonych, wędzonych śliwek oraz lekkie nuty kakaowe. Na finiszu lekka kwaskowatość i goryczka kawowa, która dobrze ukrywa alkohol. Piwo przywodzi na myśl delikatny likier kawowo-śliwkowy z palonymi nutami słodowymi. Warka 05.11.2013
