330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out notes of cocoa, a little roast, and almost some wintery spices. Flavour is similar, bringing out dark fruits, cocoa, and some slightly spicy notes a la Xmas spices. Not a typical porter by any means, with the wintery spices in there. Pretty well-balanced and unique. Good stuff. TBone (17565) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2013

Opaque black color, small steady beige head. Toasted roasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Sweet malty, chocolate flavor then toasted coffeish flavors. Slightly milky too. Quite sweet overall.
Bottle. An unclear, dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. Roasted, chocolatey aroma, nice but a bit simple. Some piney hops blending in. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with roasted malts and roasted kind of bitterness. Chocolate and piney notes. Full to medium body with a soft carbonation. Lasting finish. A bit boring this one, but quite nice anyway. 141213 Ferris (15353) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
