Artichoke (65) - California, USA - APR 15, 2014
No head. Dark cherry, malt nose. Roasted burnt caramel, light lingering sweet finish. Satisfying, not complex, and not cloying as other sweet porters. Solid and at 4.4 abv I could session all day. Great!

Idiosynkrasie (3804) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear darkest brown with average, creamy to frothy, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Minimally sweet and roasty dark malt aroma, a touch of coffee. Very soft palate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty with dry, roasty notes, a touch of chocolate and a constant bitter hoppy overtone. Nice.

jamesie1857 (1391) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
500ml bottle - pours black with a respectable white head that laces down the glass. Espresso aroma, smoky and liquorice first taste, with an oily mouthfeel. Bitter after taste that holds for well over a minute a sip. It deserves a chance if you see it and are wondering "should I buy it?"... I would.

rauchbier (3607) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle, from Asda. Black, thin shortlived off white head and moderate condition. Gentle farmyard aromas initially then a coffee and chocolate bitterness wih hints of butter, liquorice and a little plasticy phenol in the nose, soft and dry in the mouth with bitter coffee and a sweetening chocolate note, lingering coffee in the mouth with a faintly fruity tang.

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
Best before July 2010, this 500ml brown bottle was drank and reviewed in April 2010. The beer was poured (twice) into a bulbous tulip glass (a stemmed Palm badged one). The colour was almost black, held up to the light source it revealed that it was really a deep, dark ruby red colour, a rich foaming tan coloured head sat proudly on top. The aroma was all about burnt/roasted malts, as was the taste once the beer was in the mouth. Rich, creamy and full of those malt flavours already mentioned, lovelly. Impressed with this, my second beer from Acorn. Not too sure about the rear label claiming chocolate, cherry and liquorice flavours, but I suppose if your tastebuds are finely tuned you might be able to find those flavours, I couldn’t, I just liked the beer!

Beersiveknown (2971) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle From Fletch the monkey, postal trade! Opaque brown-black with a thick and creamy mocha head as if poured through a sparkler. On the nose its licorice and dark chocolate. In the mouth its rich and roasted up front with amazing mouth feel for its relatively low ABV. Milk chocolate with a coffee bitterness in the long and dry finish. If its this good in bottle I’d love to try cask!
