A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is of chocolate and coffee. While the flavor is sour with notes of coffee leading up to a dry end. But the body is unfortunately thin. Thanks Mike for trading this one with Jeppe. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005

Very black - nearly intransparent. Nicely softly malty, and full bodied. Very roasty, salty with notes of dark chocolate. Well balanced with a bitter finish. This is an outstanding porter! madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012

Cask at GBBF. Opaque black beer. Light palate, a little crisp. Grassy spicy hops over a light touch of dark malt. Very tasty.
