500mL bottle, pours a cola-like color with some ruby hues when held to light; thick foamy head slowly fades. Aroma is unique: earthy, smoky, peaty, caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar and very sweet smelling overall. Sweet flavors as well with notes of caramely grain, brown sugar, raisin, fig, plum, prune, earthy peat and a touch of smoke and tobacco leaf. Fuller body, modest carbonation, sweet through and through with not much bitterness. Overall, far too sweet for my liking. Fun to try, but it's a one and done for me.

Almost completely black.Aroma is roasted malt,coffee and dried fruit. Similar taste,a bit sweet from the taste of dried fruit which seems to not work with the butter ciffee. Takes a while and as it warms it starts to work much better

A charming honey brown color towards the bottom, deepening up to a dark brown-black towards the middle, and a creamy root beer float-like head.

Aroma is heavy on chewing tobacco, with notes of prune and leather behind it.

Flavor translates somewhat, adding some dry chocolate in there as well. Nice pruney notes, raisin, plum...just vineyard all around. Caramel, smoked molasses, tobacco and leather comes in on the finish.

Feel is pleasantly dry, with an apt carbonation. Nice slick mouthfeel.

Overall not a bad porter. It's definitely not chocolate or roast forward - it's more molasses and dark fruits.

Three fingers of tan head with good rings of lace. Black color .
Smell is molasses and raisen.
Taste is sweet raisen and molasses. No hop presence at all.
Mouthfeel is medium with strong carbonation. Finish is sweet and very mildly bitter.
Overall a sweet and tasty Porter. No coffee or chocolate. Just molasses and raisen.
Nothing bad but a sweet beer for sure.

From the 500 ml. bottle stamped simply PO 1/2. Sampled on December 11, 2106.

It pours dark brown with a long lasting foamy tan head and some lacing. I also see reddish hues in the light.

How sweet are those roasted malts on the nose? Very. Also a low earthy hop profile. But the sweetness is right out there.

Medium-full body and creamy.

Delightfully sweet roasted malt taste with a kind of milk creaminess thrown in. Slight chocolate at the end. Mildly dry and clean finish. More Porters should be this way.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. My bottle says 7.2% abv, but otherwise is identical to the one pictured. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, dark fruits. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, some sweetness, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I really enjoyed this beer, I wish I had picked up more than one.

From bottle, pours a very dark brown almost black colour with a good tan head that disapates to a thin layer. Aroma chocolate, sweet, roasty, malt, caramel, brown sugar. Taste pretty much follows the nose. Very nice.
