Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, and perhaps coffee. Opaque brown/black color with ruby hilites on the edges. A beige head stays. A bit thin in body; moderate, almost creamy carbonation. The flavor starts with roasted malt, accompanied by significant bitter. There are notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish is very dry, bitter, and has remnants of burnt toast and baking chocolate. A very subtle sour touch comes and goes. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2006

Bottle poured a clear brownish black with red highlights and a large lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of roasted malt coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, light coffee and a hint of cocoa with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish. Kinda on the watery side for the style in my opinion.

Bottled, 650ml, pasteurised. Black with ruby hue, brown tan head. Thick and dry porter with a heavy, tarry nose and a heavily roasted malt body. Plenty of chaffy notes with a coffee husk background and a touch of treacle. Bitter on the finish, its fine but not refreshing. djd07 (14471) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap at Monsters of Beer 2011. Pours a dark brown with creamy medium sized head. The aroma is a vanilla roast and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter malt with roast and light hop finish. Easy to drink a very good porter from Rogue. Borup (14461) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
