Bottle. Very dark brown with a large beige foam. Aromas are rich roast malts with blackberry. Some caramel with candy sugar and some floral notes. Flavours are coffee with smooth, sweet caramel. Berry fruit with herbal notes. Dry on the finish with a gritty aftertaste. Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge, off white and cloudy head. Dark malts, light chocolate and caramel in the nose. Fairly sweet with cocoa and candy, along with some chalky, tobacco bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Seriously dry to finish, with some burnt wood and charred malts, which are short-lived with touches of sugary sweetness. Decent beer overall. chrisv10 (17288) - DENMARK - DEC 10, 2010

Bottle from La Bon Marche, Paris.
Roasty, milky, sweet aroma with chocolate, some dark fruit. Black, not opaque quite, medium tan head. Roasty flavor, sweet, with chocolate, wood, burnt malts, cream. Seems to be a slightly sweet, dry-finishing porter. Decent, light, clean. Nice roasted malt finish.

Nice black colour, very black, lots of head. Very nice! Aroma of barley, swampwater, alcohol, unsweetened chocolate. Taste is lots of burnt barley, coffee. Overroasted in my opinion but drinkable. jaghana (6014) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 13, 2010
