bottle at home ... oh looks perfect ... deep black ... nice solid tan brown head ... soft mellow toffee chocolate roast nose... soft chocolate ... ligth toffeee ...little charcoal coffee ... quite mellow but a bit thin, give then another 2% abv and it would be stunning as is nice but a little lack luster

to be honest this is not really very porty, it tastes like a light imperial stout which is no bad thing, lost of coffe on the back taste, this is a really nice alternative to an imperial stout is has the charicteristics but not he alchol level , i will be revisiting this beer and recomend it

500ml bottle. Pours black with a medium head. Aroma is dry roast, yeasty, meaty, some chocolate and dark fruits. Taste has fruity coffee to start and a coffee chocolate finish. Smooth.

Cask Gravity at The Hope ’Living is Easy’ Beer Fest. It pours jet black, with a thick beige head. The nose is roasted malt, smoke, spice, cocoa powder, leather and a hint of dark fruit. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, dark fruit, port/vinous, wood, coffee, touch of tanginess, pepper, bitter chocolate and cola. Pretty full body (for the percentage) and soft carbonation. Full flavour, well balanced and damn-right delicious. Great stuff!

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 23/07/2012. Near black with a hint of red and frothy tan head. Bitter chocolate aroma with some blackcurrant lurking in the background and toasty malts. Flavour had plenty more fruit and chocolate, leading to a lingering, dryish finish with some vaguely vinous warmth. Excellent, Arbor have always brewed their dark beers well.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Opaque black brown beer. Decent bubbly tan head. Light dry palate. Rich dark malt with a little roast - pretty subtle. Mild coffee. Unsweet dark chocolate. Lovely berry fruits provide great counterbalance. Red berry fruits, black berry fruits - rich, tangy and juicy. I presume these fruits coming from the Port. Finishes dry. Not tasted a better Port Stout than this. Really nice fruits.
