Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle on the train to Edinburgh (from Bitter Virtue) 08/12/12. Mid black with a big dirty coffee head that thins but retains well. Nose is roast malts, dark toffee, touch of booze, molasses, dark fruits, wood, port. Tastes comprises roast malt, some hop presence, barley, touch of smoke, berry fruits, light mineral tones. Medium bodied with bite, soft carbonation, bitter roast in the dry finish. Really good drop!

Dommod2011 (702) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
I found out how Waitrose deal with projectile vomiting this evening. Very impressive, they masked their fear of Norovirus very well. I felt very sorry for them. I think my little one just had too much to eat at her Christmas party. Picked up a Kipling but couldn’t find any port at a good price. Good job there’s port in this then. Under strict orders not to eat the cheese though. Wonder if this is the first review to mention Norovirus?

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small head. Port flavours are present give a wine like flavour. Nothing outstanding but still worth trying.

suprchunk (2340) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Black pour. Big tan head that slowly falls, leaving a ton of lacing. Big bubbly, creamy head. Roasted grains and some fruitiness at the front of the nose. Some malt and chocolate at the back. Bitter up front, followed by a nice chocolate malt flavor. Some of the fruity notes carry over into the taste. Nice sweet finish with some black coffee bitterness in the back. Nice beer.
