Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
500 ML poured into a Mikkeller tulip
A-- Poured a dirty, murky dark brown color. Half finger of dirty, off white head. For the most part film. Little bit of streaky lacing through drinking.
S-- Great nose. Strong Nutella nose with a lot of coffee mixed in. Slightly dry nose. Bigger smell than what I was expecting.
T-- Coffee, chocolate, nuts, dark fruits and a fairly hoppy, acidic taste. Works well.
M-- Slightly thin here and there but good medium light body. Coffee and the hoppy acidic feel carry the beer to the mid and back palate to a very dry coco powder finish. Coco powder sticks around for a while. Medium carbonation.
O-- Good lighter style Porter. Really liked how it went from Nutella to dry coco powder and a good amount of hop bitterness in this. Works quite well for the style.

(Bottle) Dark brown colour with lasting, frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark rye bread, dark chocolate, liquorice, coffee, caramel and a touch of soy sauce. Roasted, malty taste with notes of coffee, dark bread, liquorice, coffee, a touch of soy sauce and a generous coffee/cocoa bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry but a touch of sweetness peeping through. Solid and well made classic porter. Nice. yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, at RBNAG-11. It pours a dark, dark brown body under a dense, off-white head. Unclear. The aroma is nice but a bit one-tracked, with roasted malts and coffee. Some sweetness in the flavor, dry and full-bodied on the palate, with a pleasant level of carbonation. Roasted malts and coffee as well in the flavor, with some coffee bitter flavors in the end. One-dimensional but quite lovely. 111015 daje (4548) - NORWAY - JUL 10, 2012
