Bold and black, strong and full bodied, malty, slightly fruity, notes of hops, coffee, maybe some pine. Bottle from my cellar, an excellent porter in every way. Rune (13759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2017
Poured from a big bottle at Humle & Bier - Craft Beer Festival. Dissipating espresso head, fair lacing, deep black body. Attractive aromas of pine and dark malts with a touch of coffee. Comprehensive, nicely roasted flavours of coffee, black chocolate, and dried fruits. Long-lived roasted malty bitter ending. Well bodied. Enjoying stuff (Shared with Finn, Tromsø 17.03.2017).

Fat hos Reza. Torr, rökig . Wasa skeppet här . Lång eftersmak. Spännande god rökig öl. Lite för hårt kolsyrad dock. commonmac (1369) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle picked up by blonderedhead and shared for Valentine’s Day. Consumed in Avery Belgian snifter glass. Plenty of frothy tan head sits atop a dark black colored affair. Nose is an assertive roasted, nutty quality with a prevailing coffee undertone. Slight hint of chocolate...very mild. Taste carries the coffee elements through from the aroma with a bitter and roasted espresso bean finish. There is a kind of dark fruit (raisin) characteristic but it’s overshadowed by a overt bitterness. Dark chocolate towards the end. Seems to respond well to warming up. I can respect this one but the smoky qualities are not inspiring me to go out and buy it again.

Taste: Bold hoppy bites mixes with dark malts with berries, chocolate, toffee, oak, smokey notes. Same with the nose. Dark brown, semi opaque, tan foamy head. Full body. Smokey massive somewhat smooth porter, still hop presence. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. This is a smoke bomb of a porter with loads of roasted malts and coffee undertones. Cunningham (8528) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2017
Black as the deepest dungeon, and a fine tan head. Good lacing also. Fine intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a smooth fine carbonation level. Mellow and fine sweetness, and fine bitterness to back it up. Chocolate, roasted barley, mild smoke and espresso in the flavor. Solid nice evening sipper.jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 29, 2017

Bold & roasty! Lovely dark pour w/ a tiny head & great lacing. Aroma is dark coffee & powerful! The taste is bitter coffee w/ just enough hint of chocolate to smooth it out. Powerful stuff! BenL8 (298) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours black with a fine sheet of white head. Aroma is of dark malts, dark chocolate, cherries, caramel, oak, some smoke, vanilla. Maybe some plums. Medium body. Flavour is rather rough, leathery, oaky, a little smokey, very bitter, dark chocolate, hoppy and intense. Finish is long and intense, too bitter and leathery. Overrated and overpriced, far too rough in my opinion.
