When I first opened the bottle, it foamed for longer than 1 minute - and kept foaming after every sip after that. Bottle I had was way too over-carbonated and harsh on the throat. Not a pleasant drink or feel at all. Maybe it was just a bad batch, but I won't be buying anymore.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours very dark brown, bordering on black. Little touches of foam. Nutty malty nose, slight coffee. Very creamy taste. Strong coffee bitter which holds throughout. Smooth, rich, bitter. Strong porter. Enjoyed it greatly.
