Dark brown pour, light brown head. Very roasty and dry porter. A bit charred, asphalt, and a light coffee finish. Not my favorite porter. Pyrmir (6109) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2013
355 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Near black with tan head. Aroma with earthy and light citrus hops, roasted malt and chocolate. Taste with earth, citrus, coffee and chocolate hintes. thomat (3870) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2013
Dark brown with a medium tan head. Malty and chocolate tones. Malt, chocolate, coffee and hops. Medium body with a nice dry finish. BillWyce (1086) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2013
From notes: Poured deep, opaque nut brown with a 3-finger light tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a nutty note, and maybe a touch of citrus. Body is medium-to-full with a touch of astringent dryness in the finish. Flavor is nutty and roasty, with a touch of citrus from the hops. The hop note wouldn’t qualify as string, but definitely one of the hoppier porters I’ve had. DocLock (10706) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours dark brown and deep mahogany through direct light, with a 2-finger tan head. Nose is roasty choc/black patent malts, cacao, nuts. Tastes medium in heft and complexity, with a roasty malt flavor, mild cacao, heavy nutty flavors, and some finishing molasses. The repour gives more well-retained frothy head. This is a solid porter, with a complex tan head more legendary than Cassius Clay’s.

Dark with a tan head. Earthy and light citrus hops, light roasted malt, a bit of chocolate. Nice full body. Earthy hop, citrus, tart, coffee bean. Nothing out of the ordinary but a solid porter and one I could have a couple rounds of at the bar. Good stuff.
