An aroma of pear, prune, raisin, mild cherry and mild coffee malt. Appearance is dark brown, nearly black, with thin chocolate milk colored foam, some lace. Taste is of sweet raisin, balanced with mildly bitter dark chocolate and some burnt malt. Palate is fizzy, but just a little thin. Overall, a very good beer! firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2014

Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is like red wine and chocolate. Flavor is rich wine with a bit of chocolate. A bit of sourness, but not unpleasant. Finishes smoothly with a touch of sour fruit.

From 750ml bottle. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of cherries with hint of cocoa and yeast. Tastes of cherry, dark fruits, yeast, and chocolate with a strong dry cocoa finish. Best "chocolate" beer ive had. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Listed as a Belgian Porter (vs. generic ale). Bottle for "Friendsgiving" event. Mahogany (spelled that one correctly right off the bat for the first time!) with swirls of sediment. Fine, thick tan head that reduces moderate-fast to a film. Aroma is of chocolate, lakewater, deep wet vegetation and rich earth, slight burnt bark. Flavor is amazing, bready (raisin bread?), light generic fruit (pear and apple), some bread crust (not overly roasted though), yeast, light blended spice. Light body on the watery side with a distinct moderate prickliness.
