flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle (500ml): Smells of coffee & roasted malts with some roasted barely too. Dark ruby with a brownish white head that lasts well & leaves a little lacing. Dominated by coffee taste & malts with a nice coffee finish. Medium bodied with a very slight tang & silky smooth in the finish. Very drinkable & a lot like Guinness although with more of a coffee flavour dominating both the taste and smell. (More at: /)

Smells like a bonfire and tastes like burnt matchsticks. This would make a good session beer if your in the mood

deanso (6604) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2010
50cl bottle from Asda in Rotherham. Pity about the choice of white glass for the bottle. A very decent porter. A very nice surprise
