UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Draft at Fado. Clear but nearly opaque dark brown garnet pour with off-white foam. Nice lace. Sweet dark roasty malts. Solid coffee notes. Cocoa nibs. Burnt nuts. Hints of dark berries. Full-bodied for a Porter. Enough hop bite for balance. Surprisingly well done. Vinx (133) - ITALY - MAR 28, 2017
Deep aroma of chocolate, coffee, red fruit, toffee, caramel, nuts, astringency by roasted malts and a kind of dust/metal hint due to the oxydation (I’m talking about a 6.6% ABV bottle expired on december 2015). Clear dark brown color, long lasting tan head. Medium-high bitterness. Medium body, thin feel, soft carbonation, astringent and bitter finish. It’s really a good one but I’d suggest not to keep it in the cellar too long. LaPelos (37) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017

Dark brown color. Thin head. Very roasted malty chocolate cake and nutty nose. Medium full body. Low roastiness, ,chocolate dark fruit and modest hoppiness. Dry. Nice lingering roasted malt, chocolate and nutty finish. oobawa (1747) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Ah, ol’ roasty, still as toasty and burnt and drinkable as ever. Giant notes of espresso with dark chocolate undertones, leading to a bitter finish heavy on smoke and a dark cherry sweetness. A bit thin, even for a porter, yet the neverending char gives it an unmistakeable footprint. Not perfect but enjoyable as hell.
