3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with ruby edging and a tan head. Strong chocolate aromas, with dark malt and a touch of coffee. Tastes incredibly dark and rich - dark roasted malt, a little burnt, rich coffee flavours and a hint of dark chocolate. A bitter finish, a little fizzy on the palate but very smooth otherwise. Nice, very nice.
500ml bottle from Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours black with a lasting medium-sized beige head. Aroma is caramel, roastiness, coffee. Taste is butter, toasted malt, caramel, medium bitterness. parpalapelix (13) - Arad, ROMANIA - JAN 9, 2018
Black color with small fast disappearing brown head.Aroma has oats and sugary malts. Mild roasted finish.Dominant bitter taste with some smokey and light malt sweetness in finish. Ok, a but thin overall. AWS9 (752) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle. Decent dark pour with airy/foamy head. Oats and sugary malts in the nose. Bit oily body. Mild roasted finish. Seems to lack the character of a more well-crafted porter, and the finish is disappointingly thin. Meh. jercraigs (11095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017

Pour beautifully with a lovely off white head, very tasty with hints of caramel, very smooth but a bit strong just one bottle was enough. pitch992 (248) - SLOVENIA - DEC 18, 2017
Bottle at Guinness pub Ljubljana. Well rounded, drinkability as expected, a bit more tar notes than coffee, some more alcohol notes than expected at this abv level. beergearbox (150) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2017
To a full belly, a heavy purse, and a light heart.
Chocolatey, coffee-ey, yummy. dave360 (34) - - DEC 13, 2017
5% bit strong to taste for my liking but overall a nice ale but just that bit too strong

God og spændende porten. Dejlig fyldig øl, med tilpas sødme og bitterhed. Rimelig frisk
