Very smooth dry porter with subtle complexity of chocolate, malts, nuts and coffee. A tad on the expensive side for what you’re getting, but worth drinking if you get a chance. alexsdad06 (11222) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2010

Pours opaque black with generous head at first that disappears after several minutes of viewing.
Nose has a roasty marshmallow quality, roasty but nougat-sweet. Dry chocolate cake.
Palate has a coffee chocolate roastiness with some thick sweetness, and thick body as well. Very chewy and handsome.
Finish is medium to long with a carbonation tingle and dry roastiness on the palate.
Worth seeking out. rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2010
Very dark brown color with faint, tan head; aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice; mouthfeel is smooth and lowly carbonated; flavor adapting the nose, heavily dominated by liquorice and roasted malts; some hops appearing in the finish prevents the flavor going too sweet.
