Chris_o’s GBBF Shindig August 08. Coffee and alcohol aroma. Dry and very bitter - a difficult drink. A strong Irish Stout. Just a little too strong, dry and bitter for me. Uncomfortable. cab (866) - DENMARK - AUG 30, 2008

Almost black with a good tan head. All the usual roasted malt/coffee/chocolate character you would expect with a slight smoky hint. Very slight sourness gives it a nice kick. The carbonation is a little too high and the palate too thin to really deliver the good qualities that are there.
Bottle. Dark brown almost black colour with a brown head. Good roasty aroma with some smoke. Flavour is the same with coffee and a good burned roastyness. Defreni (3277) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2008
Flaske. Mørkebrun øl med et fint fast skumhoved. Brændt duft der går igen i smagen. Ikke så rund og blød som ellers er karakteristisk får rigtig gode portere. Men en udmærket øl der er drikbar. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is alcohol, roasted malts, some dark dry fruits. Flavour is the same along with some coffeeish notes as well as vanilla and wood.
