Pours a beautiful black beer with a good brown head. Smells coffee, chocolate and a bit milkey and burn. I love the taste. Absolutely great. Heavy coffee. Burned. Thick body with a sticky texture. Good fitting carbo. Great beer! mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Black with a small cappuccino head. Light smoke and roast malt aroma. Similar flavour. The burnt malts deliver a long lasting bitter finish. TtV (458) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep dark black with a red glow. Tiny light brown head, again with a red glow. Head fades quickly. Strong aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, sugar. The taste starts with an intense flavour of dark chocolate and sugar, but develops quickly into a deep bitterness and leaves you with a warm glow of alcohol. Good!

A 0,33cl bottle from the Craftbeerspezialist.de. Nice dark brown color. Tast is intensive and strong. Nice tast of espresso and dark chocolate. A great porter.

Dark, black colour, large brown head. Great aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is like aroma. Body is good, nice bitterness, not too much, lively carbonation, though still relatively soft. Good beer! altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2012

Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown with lasting tan head. Nose of chocolate and malts and espresso. Taste of dark chocolate, malts and lots of bitter in the finish. Quite a delectable little cocktail. Hats off.
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Amazingly rich and complex beer. Tones of coffee, dark chocolate and peated whiskey. Great one. berntholer (1617) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
