Am almost black beer that has a nice tan head. Good retention. A nice nose that is dark chocolate and is grainy. It has a nice feel. I also taste tobacco juice and soy. It goes from soggy to sour, odd though that be. This cannot be considered a great porter. muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle 500ml from Tallinn. Pours a dark brown reddish color with medium tan head that leaves some lacing. Medium carbonation, full body. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malt. Flavor is strong roasted malt, some chocolate and caramel and a little hops. Somewhat sweet too. Tastes better if it’s warmer. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Red-brown body. It tastes sweet a bit like sugar and fruity. Overall it is ok! 11/11/11/11/11/11 mjg74 (3238) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle from La Mesa Market. Bottled at 7.5%. Sweet malty nose. Flavor is roasty and sweet with some anise. Nice and smooth. Not too roasty. Mostly sweet and anise. Tasty little porter. olio (10819) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012

Poured from a pint-sized bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a full, wet/watery black body with a big foamy-creamy dark tan head that had good retention, and great lacing and cling. Its aroma had a floral and dark fruit bend, with some notes of chocolate, licorice, and raisin, and light touches of molasses and candy, and some earthy hops. It had a deep fruity sweetness with some lighter chocolate and caramel, and a sour grainy and earthy component, with touches of licorice and molasses. Its body was wet and watery with a lighter and thinner mouthfeel, and lower carbonation and fizz. Niko100 (3014) - Chicago, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2013

tastes like a porter - looks like a brown ale. little maltiness - but tastes like it was brewed with some sugar. little bit of hoppiness. flavors of chocolate and coffee. not bad - nothing spectacular. AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Fairly light colored for a porter. Bubbles sticking to the side of the glass, but they may have more to do with how the glassware is washed than the beer. They diminished after a couple minutes. Rocky, tan head. Fairly, metallic malt aroma. A little spicy. The aroma gets me thinking about all the winter releases I can't wait to drink. A porter with neither chocolate, nor coffee. To be honest, I miss those flavors a little.
