Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with roasted nut, cocoa, char, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of earthy characteristics in the aromas and flavors.

Serving type: bottle.

Very dark brown, almost black when poured. Low creamy head that dissipates quickly. Decent smell, though not strong. Delicious tasting porter; full of flavor. Nice rich taste with flavors of chocolate and coffee, slightly smoky. I enjoyed the beer a lot; though I did not find myself craving another immediately - probably because I found this beer filling. Medium to heavy body; slightly grainy.

360ml bottle imported March 2012.
Poured with a creamy tan head that had very good retention and lacing. Very dark brown but clear body.

Aroma: lightly sweet, with hints of chocolate, raisins and coffee.

Flavor: rich and complex with great balance and a lasting dark-roasted grain aftertaste. Somewhat similar to a Scottish stout including a hint of smoke.

Feel: Medium body is near creamy smooth even with lively medium carbonation.

O: an excellent porter.
