Nice strong light brown head of verying sized creamy bubbles. Aroma of pencil shavings, roasted grains, plastic and some licorice. All that in a relatively weak aroma. Color is a very dark brown. Creamy and super smooth mouthfeel. Lactose, sweet malts, milk chocolate, ash and some burnt toast. Light alcohol presence. Lingering ashy burnt taste which lends towards and dry chalky palate. An ok porter. Mad_Ferret (1019) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2016

Bottle. Dark brown with big foamy beige head. Nose of Cocoa and roasted grains. Taste of cocoa and chocolate liqueur. Palate is thinner than I prefer for a porter. Finishes with a bit of dusty cocoa. Not bad. Handypaul (565) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 1, 2015

Very soft aroma of roasted malts and coffee.
Pitch black beer with a small light-brown head.
Starts sweet and carbonated, then gets slightly bitter with roasted malts.
22oz bottle pours a deep black with some creamy, off white head. Nose has a comforting note of coffee grounds, some brown sugar, molasses. Flavor has some nutty coffee, chocolate covered berries, molasses, malt, a little soil. Big coffee finish. Very nice.
