A Porter of true character, made with only the finest malted barley for a firm, bitter flavour.

mike_77 (5399) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2009
Deep, dark brown colour with thin creamy head. Some hop citric acidity detectable in the aroma. Flavour has masses of roasted malt and has a hint of coffee in the aftertaste.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle, Black coloured beer with some average carbonation and a large brown head. Coffee and caramel roasted malty, rather strong sweet aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is creamy, strong roasted caramel with some light spicy touches and a special strong ending.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2008
Dark brown in colour with ruby tones and a big, fluffy tan head. Sweet malt and dark fruit aroma. Flavour was sweet, with some chocolate, roastiness and an abrupt bitter finish. Ok.

Pyobon (1295) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle. Very dark brown with beige long-lasting head. Dark, smoky / roasted malt aroma. Medium body with plenty of fine carbonation. Rich with a sharp and bitter edge giving good balance. Malty with fruit and some dark chocolate / coffee notes with a bitter finish. Well balanced, but Porter is not my favourite style.

This fine beer may only be bettered by a second. Good head, strong ale but does not compromise the great flavour,

A strong, hoppy ale, with just enough bite to avoid being considered bland. Similar in flavour to Bath Ales’s ’Barnstormer’, (though alas slightly inferior in my opinion).

kwik-lime (1692) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2008
Looks like Guinness with a slightly smaller head that leaves plenty of lacing. Light, malty aroma. Roasted malty taste with a hint of chocolate and nuts but not really the strength of flavour you would hope for/expect from a porter.

sm89walt (1945) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle. A rather handsome and extremely deep ruby coloured porter with a fairly small but lasting beige head. This head also leaves an attractive lacing. Dark fruits and roasted coffee dominate the nose with hints of dark chocolate. Dry palate texture with toasted malts as well as a slight chocolatey sweetness. The finish is a tad short, but is nicely dry and bitter. A bit too light for me, considering this is a porter but not bad at all.
