Dark brown color with a thin beige head.
Nice unexpected aroma of condensed milk and homemade coffee.
Predominant flavor of coffee, some chocolate and cola.
Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness from its roasted grains.
Light body with mild carbonation.
Light porter, but pretty decent, highly drinkable but still not boring.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours the color of black coffee. Cascading bubbles leave a large beige head that settles after a short time. Little in the way of lacing. Particles in suspension .

S: Medium roast coffee beans, smoke, char, carob. Faint fruitiness of figs and dates. Cardboard. Mild acidity.

T: Cocoa nibs and unsweetened chocolate, carob. Char. Citrusy hops. Slightly soured. Faint berry fruits. Mildly acidic. Metallic. Cardboard

M: medium body. Full, fluffy,creamy. Mildly astringent. Low carbonation.

O: This is either very old or it really didn't travel well. It's a shame too, because it seems as though this would be a very good beer otherwise. I

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid black with a decent sized creamy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Wow that is a bit of smoke and burnt sugar in the nose. Chocolate and caramel provide support in the aroma with hints of earth as well. The flavor is a bit less remarkable than the aroma. Mild caramel and chocolate notes with hints of smoke and earth. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a watery somewhat oily mouthfeel. Not a bad porter if not a bit on the smoky burnt end of the style. I would have loved a bit more body, and some creaminess in the mouthfeel.

A: The beer is near black when viewed from afar but the edges are very dark brownish red upon closer inspection when held up to the light. It poured with a short tan head that quickly died down, leaving only delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark and smoked malts are present in the nose.
T: The overall taste is dominated by flavors of smoke and iodine, but these aren't that strong or overpowering. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be quite interesting as it's like a lighter version of a German Rauchbier and is still easy to drink like an English Porter.

Pours black with a large lasting tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, oatmeal, lightly burnt bread. Quite moreish.
More light roast as a flavour but with little to support it. Some toasty malt again.
Carbonation could be a little higher.
Quite mild.
