A: Very, very dark amber, virtually black. Off-white head.

S: Smokey chocolate.

T: Wow! Actually tastes of chocolate. Less smokey and tangy than lots of other English porters. Very well balanced - the flavours work perfectly well together.

O: Can't fault it in any way. The world would be a better place if it replaced Guinness in pubs but chance would be a fine thing.

330ml Bottle: at 6.5% ABV, this is the same beer: poured into a Westvleteren chalice on 5th Nov 2013.

Lovely red hue to the dark body, sadly the tan coloured head soon fell away to a wispy covering.

The nose was surprise, surprise, fairly chocolatey in nature, rich, dark chocolate to be exact.

Taste wise it was also chocolate led in flavour, some coffee notes too: as it warmed a little some sweet vanilla hints began to arrive.

Medium bodied for a Porter and not at all creamy, although it was fairly smooth in the mouth.

Not as powerful or flavoursome as I expected: not bad, but no world beater.

Picked up at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

Poured into a tulip glass - dark, almost black color, but with a low enough viscosity that light can peak through the glass. As such, much less creamy, or full, as a stout. Nice hints of chocolate, and the light carbonation perks it up so you chocolate notes pop back up in the aftertaste.

On the label, it recommends to have as a desert beer or digestif, but I would defer to something a tad stronger, fuller-bodied.

A: The beer is clear but very dark brownish red in color and has ever so slight hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of chocolate are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is quite chocolately and tastes like a watered down version of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup without the sweetness and some hints of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has nice flavors of chocolate that seem natural and not too heavy and sweet. It tastes more like an English Porter compared to a Baltic Porter.
