Sjohnh (442) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Tasty, drinkable mid-range porter. Coffee and chocolate on the nose, with some red fruit and vanilla joining these on the taste. Not much else there and, for me, no rum, but the sweetness and bitterness are well balanced. Medium body. Dark - absolutely no head when poured from my bottle.

Martin243 (894) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Very dark mahogany brown with a thin coffee skim on the top. Toffee malt and leather aroma. Coffee, bitter chocolate, liquorice and smoky flavour. Porter, but had brown ale, old ale and premium bitter characteristics. Like BlackHaddock below, I didnít notice any rum, but I didnít miss it. Rich, full-bodied and contemplative. Nice warming winter ale.
