Foffern (1467) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is deep and dark reddish brown colour with a medium light beige head. Roasted aroma with nuts, coffee, wood, roasted almonds and leather. The flavour follows with a nice roasted touch, but is also sweet with some caramel. Has a slick and light mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and easy-drinking porter.

ClubGonzo (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a deep ruby-hued near-black body with a small off-white head. Nose is a huge dose of filter coffee and some dark chocolate and cocoa in the back. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, grains and hints of licorice in the back. Watery texture, soft carbonation. Pretty run-of-the-mill low-strength porter.

zimbo (771) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2013
Drank this some time ago on Burns night with Haggis. Appealing black colour with long rusty higlights at the bottom of the glass. Rather thick sustained tan head leaves lacing like mini dense snow drifts.Light body, light coffee, roasty bitter end. SOme fruit in there to surrounded by the roast. Rewards patience.

worldbeertaste (1755) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Deep dark red almost black with a beige thick, creamy lasting head. Smells of nice rich roasted coffee, mocha/coco and malt. Simple but not overpowering. As it warms it gets a stronger smell of chocolate. Smooth full creamy thin body. Nice full bitter taste from start to dry finish. Tastes of vanilla, coffee, and nice roasted malts with chocolate and liquorish. Though its a bit thin, its very enjoyable and a great porter.

KyotoLefty (7972) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle at the Pig and Whistle in Kyoto. Black with reddish tints and a low, thick head. Nice nose of chocolate, cocoa, cream, fruit, and a touch of veggies. Cocoa flavor, sweet but not overly so, with a light tang. Very creamy, vanilla and milk and light coffee roast. Dry finish with some hops. Light but full and smooth. Good.

Tap (new sister pub to the Euston Tap, London)
Very dark, large tight head - looks great! Nutty and dry aroma. Full in teh mouth, lots of roast. A lilttle too earthy, and almost metallic. I don’t think these guys keep the beer brilliantly, so probably not Black Isle at fault.
