This is a wonderful porter for the winter months with explicit dark roasted flavors that correlate with distinct chocolate overtones. This smooth dark finishes well with just enough hops for a crisp aroma and clean finish. a definite must-try! Rasmus40 (22130) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2014

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Super soft chic mouthfeel. Hides it’s strength brilliantly. Toasty chic. Bristles. Rich, yet aerated. Gurthnar (6280) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle shared by Bobo, thank you! Aroma dried fruits, raisins, plum. Alcohol. Chocolate, roasted. Quite complex. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Taste is sweet all the way, though some light bitterness is present in the background. Cognac. Caramel, fruity. Full body, alcohol not disturbing, although present. Great experience. rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 8, 2013
All black Porter, brown head leaving thin laces on the glass. Beautiful nose of roasted, chocolate, notes of coffee and dark fruits. The mouth is round and fleschy, similar roasted, chocolate, coffee, roasted nuts, soft and caramelized sweetness like a treat fruity. Finale on dark chocolate, bitterness of roasted and hops mixed, sugar coated. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 22, 2013
12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of rich, roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, a little smokiness, some hints of dark fruits, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same with a decent blend of everything. Smooth texture. A pretty good imperial porter.
