Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2013
(Bottle): Pours almost black with medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, some light hints of nuts. Taste is mostly roasted malt base with coffee and dark chocolate. Some moderate bitterness to go along with it. Not bad, quite a basic porter.

Pretty good actually. Some chocolate and a nice richness to it. I do like porters. I drained my first. Thereís something warm and comforting about them. Whitechapel Road. £4. Next to either -£200 or a chance. I rather take a chance, though that depends on what itís on, if itís on the chanteurs of Abba-esque Iíll send the £200 to wherever it needs to go.

Fairground (29) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Chocolatey aroma which is a lovely thing, extremely dark ale almost black in colour, the head is frothy but dies down quickly very dry taste but medium bitterness, light sweetness as an undertone. medium body, soft carbonation, long finish,

jvhemert (330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. AROMA: toast, roasty, hint of coffee, chocolate, APPEARANCE: black, minimal head, TASTE: medium bitterness, lightly sour, PALATE: light body, thin feel, lively, bitter, dry OVERALL: little to know aroma, has hints of aroma/tastes of a porter but lacks body and character. Finished half of a pint.

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle...from ASDA obviously. This is very thin for a porter and there was not enough roasted malt flavor for my taste.

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Light dry palate. Mild dark malt with traces of roast and coffee. Some sweeter malt as well and a little bubblegum ester underneath. Dry finish with a bitter malt and hop snap. Too dry, but okay.

SarkyNorthener (1788) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Almost black beer. Aroma of chococoffee. The taste is of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and greek coffee. Typical of the Porters I am used to. The palate is a little weak however. Overall a good beer, a style I like.
