Masses of chocolate malt creates a full-bodied, palate-coating beer that is rich and smooth. Notes of chocolate, tobacco and espresso, it’s smoky, toasty and tasty!

Beersiveknown (2765) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 9, 2014
dark brown with ruby highlights and tan head. Too cold so little on the nose but starts to give up chocolate and red berries as it warms. Full bodied with modertate carbonation. Creamy chocolate, dry toast and red berries. Perhaps a bit thinner than some but plenty of flavour.

maneliquor (3004) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Nose is bitter and chocolatey with a touch of meaty smoke which works nicely. As it warms liquorice comes through. Taste is more of the smoked malts and bittering chocolate. Aniseed adds a nice touch. Nice stuff. Kind of like a better Guinness

Keg @ J W Sweetmans, Dublin [140813]
Dark brown, ruby edges, thin tan head, good lacing
Aroma - Caramel malt, chocolate, well I’m getting tobacco because of the tasting notes given, dark fruit malts, smooth roast
Taste - Caramel, some soft spicy hops, chocolate, dark fruits, tobacco(!), quite complex, touch of smoke, very nice
Palate - Soft carb, thin to medium body. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Nice porter, some dark fruits in there, perhaps a little thin though
