look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Black. There is no other way to describe it. There isn't a hint of anything beyond black. Foamy solid head - one finger height. Remained through the first three sips before receding into the black hole that is this porter. Significant lacing.

Aroma: Rich with malt, chocolate, and a hint of coffee and licorice. Smells exactly like it should. Delicious.

Taste: The coffee takes the wheel when you begin sipping. Very well balanced but thick with coffee, chocolate, and light notes of caramel. Not heavy though, which is the wonderful thing about the Porter style - a darker, lighter beer in comparison to your stouts.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, chocolate coffee coating, with light to medium carbonation thus providing for an easy drinker.

Overall: I'm a Porter fan and I really like this variance on the style. The 7% ABV isn't noticeable, and the light carbonation combined with the sweet flavors make it highly drinkable. Best porter I've had in Singapore!

500 ml bottle. Brewed 4/7/12 so about 14 months on it. Pours a huge head of creamy tan foam, amazing retention. Colour is an expected dark brown but the lacing retention is superb.

S- figs, raisin, silky chocolate, red current, a roasty presence, with a dry floral element. Some vanilla and toasty notes. Very full and inticing

T- a thick dark malt body with aged fruity hints to it. More chocolate develops, with some dark cocoa and sweetness, earthy and dry with some dark cherry notes, dry woody and floral spices come round. A malt forward porter with strong dark malt and chocolate flavours and a nice array if fruity complimenting notes. Finishes nice and full with a lively toasty malt.

M- light initially then some more of the coating chocolate malt with a gentle carbonation but very relaxed beer that drinks very well. No alcohol heat.

Quite an enjoyable porter. Rich and dry with a very rounded balanced profile that is so silky. Quite a bit of depth but also very tasty upfront with pleasant dchocolate notes. It is big but it is not heavy, as in a big imp stout. Worth trying, quite a tasty achievement!

Served in a bottle at Valhalla in New York, NY

A: Pours a clear yet opaque jet black in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some dark amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to slightly heavier than moderate amounts of roasted malts with some light notes of anise/licorice.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted malts with lighter notes of bittersweet chocolate and some roasted coffee. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness are present.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a light to moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with enough complexity to keep it interesting - I could easily have another one of these and enjoy it even though it is more of a slow sipper.

From notes.

A - Gusher. Black pour, huge beige head of thick and fluffy dark beige. Strong carbonation, good soapy lace, half finger retention.

S - Chocolate covered cherries, mild roast, coffee. A bit mild for my tastes.

T - Chocolate, earthy, mild hop note, a little roast. Simple but tasty at the same time.

M - Strong carbonation for the style, medium body, sweetness moves to dryness in the finish.

O/D - Potential infection for this bottle as something seemed a bit off, but it that was off, then this beer is pretty solid. Decent flavours and well executed, but not highly drinkable. A good effort nonetheless.
