2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out in a black colour with a firm tan coloured head. Really sticky sweet aroma of brown sugar, white sugar, caramel and milky chocolate. Full-bodied with sticky sweet notes of chocolate, cookies, and boring milky French coffee. Long sweet finish of chocolate sauce, caramel with hints of hazelnuts. Way too sweet and it’s definitely lacking soul.
Bomber from a trade, if I remember correctly that is. Pours dark brown. Ok to small and fast fading, rather light head. Smell is weak. Bit grains but not very roasty. Mild booze, which is surprising for just an 8abv beer. Taste is ok, bit bitter, notes of roast. Weak, both in taste and intensity, amd misses complex features. I had no clue this was a vintage untill I tasted it , it is best before 2013 according to the denmark import sticker, which explains the mild oxidation. Only had received it a few months ago, so didnt expect it to be oxidized. Still ok. Very distant notes of chocolate and coffee. simontomlinson (365) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
No head on a still near black body.
Strong malty aroma with coffee & dark fruits.
Thick oily texture, no carbonation, smooth on the palate.
Sweet coffee & chocolate tastes with lots of malt, brown sugar, raisins, plum & quite a bitter aft. doculbert (6) - Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2017 does not count
Frothy on the pour. Very creamy with just a hint of bitterness at the end. Some chocolate and berry overtones. A very good porter.

This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium thick tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and fruit. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, bittersweet chocolate, and coffee. The finish is roasty with a malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall. leaparsons (10541) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Very dark brown with a thin beige head. Dark chocolate with roast coffee. Oily, earthy with burnt toffee and raisins. Oily with herbal cola. Hints of bonfire and meaty soy. Good stuff.

Medium beige head. Opaque black body. Toffee and soy sauce aroma with raisiny chocolatey notes. Sweetish toffee and soy sauce taste with chocolatey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish alcoholic soy sauce aftertaste with chocolatey spicy notes. It’s OK, but disappointing. (065l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Amarillo, Tx - Party Stop - Georgia St - 22 oz bomber. Pours an inky, pitch black, with a tight khaki colored head. Aroma has some creosote accents, hints of chocolate, a touch of Kahlua. Flavor is full bodied and bold. Pick up some bittersweet baker’s chocolate, some day old black coffee, some light cherry fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel has a pleasant slickness to it. Very enjoyable.

Nefarious Ten Pin falls just short of the Big Lebowski in terms of its ability to make bowling temporarily cool. Aroma is roasty. Chocolate and subtle fruit flavors. Body seems a bit light for a beer of this type. Otherwise, a solid brew from SKA. HuskerTan (2201) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2016
