beerman89 (38) - Greater London, - JAN 6, 2013
Interesting and complex. Aroma is hoppy with some coffee, licorice and tropical fruits. There is some strawberry sauce in there somewhere. The taste is immediately bitter espresso and chocolate, with the hops and tropical fruits trying to push through but the coffee dominates. There is a bitter finish with a slightly sweet, candy like aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Unique, and very nice!

ardeo (369) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2017
Bottle 33 best before 30.12.17. Aspect : noire belle mousse beige. Armes : sur le fruit notamment les agrumes, le rsineux, le caramel brl, le chocolat, le caf (mais pas si vident), la rglisse ... que sais-je encore ? Saveurs : entre en bouche bien frache puis les malts rtis se dveloppent en compagnie des houblons ce qui donne : chocolat, citron, caf, ... et une belle amertume tout au long. Terrific Porter ! Not far from a Black IPA !

JoTheO (191) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle 330ml. (Citra) Deep brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and dryish coffee notes. Palate is very smooth and creamy - top notch! Taste is dry with hints of the hops but plenty of malts, even somewhat smoky.

Black, beige head. Lots of coffee aroma. Some hops. Taste is more coffee and a dry hoppy feeling. Roasted malts, good mouthfeel for only 5,7%. Brilliant.

Chapeau (29) - - APR 21, 2017
Tap @ale&hop, Barcelona. Aroma is coffee and lightly hoppy, quite fresh. Pours black with a beautiful long lasting brown head. Taste is coffee, bitter in the middle and finishes with a long lasting smooth dark chocolate taste. Medium carbonation and medium body. Just an insane brew, one of the best porter I tried.

Cokemonkey11 (810) - - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head that resides in an ice cream foam. Scent is light notes of roasted malt. Taste is consistent although stronger. Finish is quite dry and raspy. About 60-70 IBU but without much point. Good.

Estebanik (1085) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Piana drobna, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat przyjemny, intensywny. Jest ten słynny prażony słonecznik, sporo palonych słodw. Na początku chmiele wydawały mi się raczej żywiczne w odczuciu, przy zamieszaniu okazało się jednak, że to bardzo przyjemny cytrus. Pźniej chmielowy aromat nieco się rozwiewa. Dość wysoko wysycone. Mocno palona podstawa słodowa towarzyszy bardzo wyraźnym nutom cytrusowym. Znacznie bardziej owocowe niż w aromacie. Grejpfrutowa goryczka, nieco spalenizny przy posmaku. Całość sprawa wrażenie lekko przypalonego na grillu cytrusa. Bardzo dobre piwo.
