robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle bought at the brewery on the opening day. Great looking beer. Tan coffee coloured medium foam head that stays, creamy lacing on the glass. Nose is big hit of dark chocolate, intense rich black coffee, lactic creaminess, lots of roasted grain malt, little bit of burnt grain, slight wood smokiness. Taste is rich black coffee dominating, dark chocolate, roasted and charred grain malt, burnt toast. The dominant character is roasted and burnt grain and coffee bitterness. Body is not as thick or oily as a stout, so medium bodied,

ladnewton (1439) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle at home on 13th October 2014, from Craft Beer Co, Islington. Pours intense sepia brown with pale brown head. Rich roasty nutty and spicy aromas. Intense roastiness in-mouth with fresh nuttiness and savoury hints. Dark chocolate and roasty malts in finish, developing into bitterness. Engaging, gripping texture and fair amount of body. A delicious bottle.

pivnizub (8919) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
Tap(@Brewery tap; RBESG 2014): As black as ink, small head; roasted malt, black berries and traces of port-wine in the nose; moderate - not too dry - bitter flavour, mildly balanced by a little sweetness, medium bodied and quite soft; lingering fruity (black berries) and port-vinous finish with a certain herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. Good…

Smooth, dark, and very, very drinkable. Not often I give 10/10 but this perfect porter deserves all the praise it gets. - Recommended

Idiosynkrasie (3915) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
330ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma has notes of chocolate and blueberries, a herbal touch. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, chocolately with notes of blueberries and belonging shrubs; long lasting finish adds some hop bitterness. Simple (in the sense emphasising a rigid scope of flavours) but extremely tasty.

Garrold (1469) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Very dark brown. Thin, sticky, tan head. Dried, vine fruit. Coffee grinds. Light cocoa. Taste is full, chewy, dark chocolate sweet. Roast dryness on top. Palate is thick, chewy, but manages some airy lightness. Finishes long, roast bitter. Just a little too bitter for me, but nevertheless this is a lovely beer.

Sampled from draught. Opaque black color, small light brown head. Smell and taste malts, a slight sweet hint, lightly a touch of roast, light to moderately bitter. Soft, velvety mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
