50 cl bottle. This beer is a wonderful Christmas brew, and it is a fantastic example of what a great porter should taste like. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep brown to black color, with a soapy white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with really good aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and light roast. The palate is firm, with good dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and light roasty flavor on the tongue. This beer finishes with more good dark chocolate and malty up front, then ends dry and roasty, with some coffee/roast flavors that lingers. Delicious, drinkable, porter, perfect as a session brew, and a natural with oysters, or any other shell fish. This beer borders on being a stout, and a good one at that. Hope Santa will put a few of these under the tree for me this Christmas. BlindGuardianco (88) - - MAR 10, 2015
Very tasty porter, not too heavy but nice body, enjoyable coffee aftertaste without being too bitter, mid carbonation makes it very drinkable, will buy again obguthr (6296) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Definite aroma of tobacco, like a freshly opened pack of cigarettes, with toasted cereal and molasses underneath. Clear brown, medium tan head, fair retention, good lacing. Thin mouthfeel. Dried and toasted tobacco persists in the flavor and is pronounced. Nice smoke and charcoal finish. Dry flavor to be sure, but unusually similar to smoking a mid-grade cigar. Itís really a curiosity. Hand to God, I think if I drink a case of this, it just might be enough to kick my filthy habit (the smoking, not the beer). By a monster mile, this is the best Iíve had from what so far has been a disappointing brewer, IMHO. triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a clear dark brown, not much head. Good roast malt aroma, dark fruit too. Moderate roast malt & hop flavor. Medium body, moderate hop bitterness. Iíd like to brew this. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a fairly small head. Nose has a lot of toasted and roasted malts. Taste has the same roasted and slightly bitter flavors. Remarkably easy to drink.

If you donít think of this as a porter, itís pretty good. Pleasant roasted aroma. Sweet, toffee like, and some chocolate. rubbishystuff (2521) - 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 minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours coca cola brown. Chocolate malt aroma. Mostly dry; hint of dark chocolate sweetness. Lightly bitter finish, almost of roast. Really really good. Patrickctenchi (6550) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Pours clear, cola-red/black with a fluffy tan head.
Scent is coffee, roast...a little ash.
Taste is chocolate, coffee....nicely malted.
Cocoa powder...a bit of smoke.
Very minimal bitterness..tingly carbonation.
Very light for a porter, but wonderful taste.
Creamy and delicious. gregwilsonstl (2453) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Mmmm, this is good. Oily slick in head. Chocolate. This doesnít taste like Santaís butt at all. Thanks Tony.
