Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Mooie donkere kleur. Ruikt naar gebrande koffiebonen en chocolade. Heerlijk vol bier, licht bitter met een iets zoete nasmaak.

TeijoA (42) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2017
33 cl bottle. Black with a lasting good one-finger head. Aroma of soy sauce, licorice, coffee, pretty good. Flavor is huge on licorice, totally overpowering. Oh well. Still, some more complexity in flavors would be nice. Bitterness is quite strong, quite a long finish in that regard. Carbonation is pretty low, which works well with the hoppiness. But yeah, I still dont like licorice in beer, and this one has it in volumes.

Kobracai (154) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Pours black. Aroma is smoke n chocolate. Taste starts off with espresso, caramel, and some tropical fruit, Here is smoke n chocolate as well. Hoppy and bitter and sweet with full body. Good porter. And Im not the biggest porter-fan.

mviljamaa (20) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Pours with a coffee colored creamy foam. Aroma is fruity and fresh and has apricot and dried plum. Colour is black. Palate is slippery and light. Very pleasant. Taste is elegant and has dried apricot and cocoa, some bitterness and alcohol like "burn". Its pleasant though and adds the elegancy to the taste. This beer tastes like a tuxedo suit looks.

Bottle. Jet black, massive head. Well balanced porter, lot of roasted notes. Medium body, intensive roasted bitternes. Carbonation too strong.

Bouteille 33 de chez Beergium. Noire avec mousse fonce fines bulles abondante et persistant sur le verre par de belles dentelles. Les armes vont vers le chocolat mais aussi la rglisse, le fum, le pain et "quelque chose que je ne parviens pas dfinir". Les saveurs sont sur le chocolat, bien sr mais ensuite le caf, les malts rtis et sur la fin le fruit. Bire complexe lamertume superbe. Nice !

bjorn77 (43) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Przyjemny, czekoladowo-kawowy w smaku, bez przesadnej paloności. Bardzo wysoka utrzymująca się piana, wysycenie ciut za wysokie. Aromat typowy dla gatunku. Niezłe, ale są lepsi

Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana beżowa, bardzo obfita, drobna, utrzymuje się sporo czasu, ładnie oblepia ścianki szkła. W zapachu pierwsze skrzypce gra kawa, jest też paloność i gorzka czekolada, może troszkę orzechw. W smaku podobnie, tylko troszkę bardziej pokazuje się paloność, więc na pierwszym planie mamy ją i kawę, dalej trochę chmieli i lekka gorzka czekolada. Alkoholu nie czuć kompletnie. Goryczka nawet wysoka, posmak palony i lekko chmielowy.
