MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with a medium brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Not a lot of different flavours; but the flavours that are here, are great. The aroma could have been stronger, but the amazing appearance balances this out overall.

AleRider78 (1146) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a thick brownish creamy head and goes away slowly, after a while. Has a very dark brown appearance, close to black. Good lacing. Some aromas of cocoa, toffee and nuts. Dry fruit and spiced hops, and a bit of chocolate as well. Strong chocolate flavours, with notes of caramel and some toffee again. A little bit sweet. Roasted malts bring about hints of coffee. Mouthfeel is fullbodied and has a creamy, warming sensation. Mild bitterness, Medium carbonation. Very good and easy to drink porter. Bitterness and sweetness is well balanced.
