Poured into a stein. Dark cola brown with a thin fizzy tan head. Aroma is semi-sweet with some chocolate and a lot of roasted coffee. Flavor is pretty mild with some nuttiness, very slight toffee notes, and some roastiness towards the finish. This reads more like a brown ale than a porter, but the palate is pretty thin and watery for either style. A little fuller body and some more maltiness would make this beer a lot better.
Very light in style. Slight nutty and malts in aroma and taste. Nothing outstanding but not going to throw it away. Bottle TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Pours a dark brown color with tan colored head. Toast, roast, nuts, and some light cocoa notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. A little thin for a porter, but not bad. Finishes with roast mostly. rubbishystuff (2529) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2017
From World Market. I didnít think this was so bad as the rating. Good minerally thirst quenching porter. Serving: Bottle ulrikolsen (575) - DENMARK - DEC 16, 2016

Pours clear dark reddish brown with lazing beige head. Aroma has malt with grain, chocolate and dark bread and hints of grassy hops. Taste is malty with dark malt, dark bread, grain, oat, chocolate and notes os nuts and a grassy hoppiness on top. Finish is quite dry.
Fluffy beige head left a cover on a dark chestnut coloured still body.
Spicy, malty aroma with fig & raisins.
Medium body, creamy, smooth & well carbonated on the back.
Creamy chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit & & malt. Leaves a long taste of candied fruit & caramel.
Worth a try

, Copenhagen (22/11/2016) - pours black with a beige head. Aroma and taste is sweet and roasted malty, with chocolate, caramel, cocoa, hoppy backing, light to medium body, dry roasted finish.
From tap at Taphouse. Black with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, sweetness, caramel, bitterness and hops. beer_queue (140) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Opaque black with some amber highlights; thick, frothy, off-white head; very little lace. On the nose: coffee, toffee, bread, sweet malts, raisins, & a little bit of dark cola (like maybe Dr. Pepper or Coke). It smells a lot sweeter once warmed. Flavors are very much like the nose, but everything is subtle. The coffee & toffee arrive up front. The development gives way for all the malts & raisins. The finish is bitter like raw, untoasted nuts. Once it warms up, the bitterness is slightly intensified, and it has a bit of smokiness coming through. The flavors altogether remind me of a black beer. Full body, medium carbonation (carbonation dies quickly, though); dry on arrival but finishes sticky. Overall, a mediocre experience and nowhere near as good as the strong ales or barleywines from this brewery.

More like a brown ale than porter; pours clear brown with sudsy white head. Light roast malt aroma and taste with a slight off apple-earthy note before the finish.

Bottled some time in 2015, though undated, drunk 12/29/15.
Dark ebony-to-mahogany body is clear with a light tan/dark beige head atop that steadily recedes to a ring.
Smells of light ash, strong purple fruits (figs, prunes, plums), buttercream/vanilla and a mild but permeating roast. Little bit of glue in there and some lightly peppery notes (hops? phenols?).
Not as watery and thin as I was expecting, with actually a little bit of chewiness to it. Vanilla, cola, prune and caramel-chocolate are all fairly enjoyable, if somewhat too sweet, with a good deal of prune/plum fruitiness that keeps it light. Coffee notes linger, with a touch of something peppery thatís a bit off-putting. But otherwise, this a very inoffensive, mindless, drinkable porter. Carbonation isnít even as obnoxious as filtered/force carbed beers usually are.
