UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Fruity aroma, very smooth with mild coffee and caramel flavours. Definate roasted hints. A great beer that is worth the effort.

Zwart. Kleine lichtbruine kraag. Geur een aparte combi van koffie, groenten en ananas. Smaak fruitige hoptonen, koffie, tabak, groenten. Behoorlijk bitter.

The beer has that lovely porter looks, which I love. The color of the beer is black, with a ruby red and brownish glow. The beer seems quite clear. On top of the beer a small layer of foam with the color of roasted almonds is poured. The foam collapses quickly, leaving a thin drape. The smell of the beer is mild. I smell some coffee, some roasted malts and some smoke. The smell gets stronger after a while. The aroma of oak woad (a barrel aged touch), and nice savoury salty caramel aroma join the bouquet. The taste is stronger from the start. There is a delicious salty caramel flavour. I also taste the smoke, oak wood and roasted barley. I also taste coffee. It has that lovely salty sea thing a porter can have. Its a blend between sweet malts, bitter hops and salty roast flavours. Its beautiful brew that gets better with time. At first its a bit to mild; at the end its a flavour inferno.

330ml bottle. Pours black without head. Lots of plums, figs, little soy sauce, little chocolate. Quite savoury, with a prominent bitterness. Really quite nice.

BeerViking (4300) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Pours deep dark red-black with a fast-settling head. Nose is pleasantly toasty with hints of red fruit and soy sauce. Body is dry-bitter with roasty-sweet undertones, thick yet dry textured, more hints of soy and a little cocoa, burnt-bitterness and a sweet, almost cloying, edge in the finish.

Heidbummer (320) - SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Pours jet black, tan head. Big mushroomy, malty aroma. Nice full mouthfeel, rich. Treacle, dates and loads of umami taste. Damn Good.

Tap @ brewDog Doghouse. Almost black, reasonable head. Mild chocolate coffe aroma. Dry earthy chocolate coffee flavour. Mild coffee aftertaste. OK.

mike_77 (5678) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2016
Black with quick fading head. Aroma and flavour have some toasted dark malts, milk chocolate and some slightly stale hops. Lacks a bit of body.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2016
33cl bb01/2018 from Gouwenaar. Bref: toffee caramels dryly sneaking up to charred malt roast, coated in lovely green berry hoppiness. - Something of a roasty Irish stout infused with Nelson Sauvin: earthiness of burnt toast dunked into fresh grape juice. Enjoyable sessiner at a well-measured 6% - even though I prefer the hop exotics dialed up a bit more in my black IPAs.

Bottle. Aroma is malty caramel with chocolate notes. Pours dark brown with ruby notes and atan creamy top. Tastes of creamy toffee malt and hop fruit. A great blend with a soft finish.

Plenty of hops n there for a porter which is just what I like to give it fruity strength in the body. On the nose coffee and burnt chocolate. Ill be having more of this.
