Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Somewhat creamy aroma with licorice and hints of chocolate. Creamy, velvety flavor, almost medium bodied, with milk chocolate, raisin, licorice and hints of smoke. Some herbal hops in the finish. Very drinkable porter.

Tap at Lager Lager. Blackish, creamy tan head. Light metallic coffee roast aroma, wide wood, seaweed, mint and licorice notes. Relatively light dry body, initially feels a bit thin, but the broad flavor profile compensates: Salty on the palate, licorice, chocolate. Brownie finish. Good balance

330ml bottle. Almost black appearance with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, hint of smoke. The taste is more of the same, with some sweet dark fruits and chocolate, bitter finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy, carbonation a little too heavy for my liking. Overall not too bad.

0.33 l bottle from 'Rudat', bottled in March 2017. Dark brown to black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and a little resiny aroma of caramel, milk chocolate and hazelnut with a touch of pine. Moderately sweet, malty, quite roasty taste of milk chocolate, coffee, licorice, some hazelnut and hints of ash, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, rather earthy-dry finish. Medium body, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good Porter, great balance, must have been long ago since I have had such a well-executed example of this style.

Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Milk chocolate, lightly roasted malt with some light ovaltine notes. Average carbonation. Body is thin, with roasted malt and coffee coming though. Finish is roasty with some light hoppy bitterness. Quite a nice, light porter. Almost refreshing for the style.
