Bottle at home. Appearance is black, hazy with a tan head. Full body, texture not too creamy, average carbonation. Nose is toffee, fruity and coffee. Taste is toffee/coffee with a hint of pine and a very bitter aftertaste. Will drink again but next time ill keep the yeast sediment in the bottle.

Svesse (8464) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2013
(Bottle) Black colour with dense, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of chocolate, cacao, a touch of pine needles, coffee and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, coffee, cacao, liquorice, tobacco and a fresh piney bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Very well balanced. Excellent porter.

FatPhil (15802) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2012
330ml bottle (BottleShop, Canterbury)
Lovely coffee aroma, mellow. Black, large tight tan head. Huge roasty body, lots of spicy zesty hops. Full and smooth and succulent. Burps pure hops - lovely! Very classy brew. No sign of 7.5%. Cant actually think how I would improve this, so probably an under-rate.
