Oakes (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
Very dark brown colour. Full rich character is chocolatey, a bit nutty. Hop bitterness is moderate, which I find appetizing in a porter. Very full, smooth body. Goes down reaaaaallly easy. Great stuff, an old favourite.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2006
Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. It pours almost black, with a beige head. Mocha and fruityness in the aroma. Nice but lacks complexity. The flavor is chocolate and coffee, once again nice but lacking complexity. A bit thin and one-dimentional, with a dryish finish. It might seem uninteresting from my description, but its quite well crafted and I would like to enjoy it again. (060824)

mcberko (16598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2010
12oz. bottle, pours dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma of strong coffee and chocolate. Flavour begins with chocolate and finishes with a lingering coffee note, and a pleasant mildly better aftertaste. Mouthful is smooth and silky. Very nice porter.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Stale coffee, harsh roastiness, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. Not a fan of the aroma. The flavor is really no better. Quite bitter with tons of roasted malt and coffee ground flavors. Some bitter dark chocolate, a bit of earthiness, maybe some slight malty sweetness. Meh.

Dedollewaitor (15905) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2007
Pitch black with a fine thick brown head. Roasted coffeee/mocha notes. Filling body not near thick though. Easy smoke & light chocolate.. light sweet malty/sugar. Dry bitter finish! Good!

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2008
650ml bottle - thanks, Anna’s parents!
Almost black, dense tan head. Sweet roasty malts in the aroma. Fairly soft palate, with an immediate burnt edge noticeable on the back of the tongue. Taste is focused on that drying charcoally burnt edge, and is at first a little uninspiring. Some pleasant spiky hops build over time, which makes it a far more interesting brew. Certainly nothing particularly wrong with it - it’s a pretty tasty quaffer as it’s not too unbalanced.

MiP (15453) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 5.3%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour. Seems hazy. Small light brown head. The flavour is bready, has a mild coffee note. Low bitterness, it seems, but actually a little unpleasant.
