Bottle shared with Mr_H and JohnRMurdoch flavour is expresso and dark chocolate initially sweet and a little smokey but fades away very quickly and becomes very dull and bland

Niall73 (1328) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Tap at Defectors Weld, Shepherds Bush. Pours a coca cola colour with an off white head. Aroma is pretty toasty, with coffee and dark fruit. Medium to light body. It's lemony, a bit toasty, with a bitter finish. Not much to this, really. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gary (1324) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
(Bottled) Resembles a glass of diet cola with a flaky beige head. dark fruit vibes from the smell of things , i get dark cherry and raisin.Obvious toffee. roasted malts -licorice too. To drink this stuff you get a bitter sweet beer -with a slightly thin watery palate, that’s a shame because there is a deep character on opening ,rich toffee -with a winey texture to things but this finishes disappointingly thin for me.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2013
(bottle, as Black Isle Organic Porter, 4.6% abv) Dark brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Slightly tarry roast-malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate, mocha and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Moderately roast-bitter and delicately sour flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Quite dry roasty malt character with notes of dark chocolate and coffee; dry and moderately roast-bitter finish with notes of coffee and a tinge of berries. Decent Porter. 11.VIII.13

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a unclear dark brown / blackish colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of bittersweet chocolate and croissant. Taste of bitter unsweetened espresso, strong coffee, nuts and malt. Hints of brown sugar. Finishes quite dry and bitter but definitely tasty and nice.

MichaelAwesome (3556) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
Not a bad one. Starting off a bit sourish with some coffee in the back. Middle is bit watery. Ends with roasted malt and roasted nuts. Definitely one of the better beers in the world. Could be a bit heavier with some more depth.

Imaena (1788) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
England: South Littleton. This is a lack luster porter that feels thin and lacking in the flavour dept.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Tap at Pelt Trader, 31/07/13. Mahogony brown with a light tan head. Nose is dark toffee, light smoke, roast malt, charred wood. Taste comprises brown sugars, light roast, burnt treacle toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Ok.
