Bottle, shared with Robbie and Grippitis. Dark walnut brown, lighter brown head. Roasty with some nice fruit accents, soft mouthfeel, quite full bodied, with a moderate bitterness and subtle hop presence. A flavourful drinkable balanced porter. olio (10673) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2016

Pours dark red, almost black color with a large beige head. Ashy burnt malty aroma, some pine, caramel and some cocoa. Flavor is cocoa and nuts, ashy, dark malts, distant coffee bitterness and some bread. Palate is very pleasant. Very nice and dry robust porter.

MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, bit oxidized, soft roast, pretty hoppy, bit herbal. Aftertaste: bitter hops, minty, more herbs, dry finish, slightly sweet.
Dark brown with red glimts and a medium creamy deep beige head. Sweet aroma with hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, hops and drying hops. Flavour came out dry with hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, grapefruity hops, coffee and hints of english liquerice. Finished dry and bitter.

Tap at Rattle N Hum. Deep black beer with a sticky tan head. The nose is lovely. There is a lot of rich chocolate and cooca along with a soft chewy maltiness. There is a nice chewiness through the middle with a kiss of plum and molasses along with a chewy toffeeish maltiness. Fairly assertive roastiness as well. Intense and chewy, but not overly sweet. Nicely constructed beer with a touch of roastiness on the back. Absolutely delicious brew. Really impressive.

Tap at Churchkey thanks to Travlr! Deep sepia to muddy brune color with swathes of tan lace. Nose is Heavy roast and spicy hazelnut. Decent caramel and spice. Taste is bitter, toasty, roasty, sharp. A bit tannic. Coffee gritty. Not bad. Dry and sharply bitter. Decent coffee heavy porter. Slightly tart finish. Mild cardboard. I enjoyed it nonetheless. blipp (9902) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasty aroma with some fruity and caramel sweetness. The flavor has roasted malt up front, coffee, chocolate, and a light wisp of smoke on the back end. Tasty and drinkable. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 1, 2007

(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 1 Feb 2016) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, coffee and blueberries. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, blueberries and a generous cacao bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and very well balanced porter. Very nice.
