zimbo (611) - 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 (1693) - 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 (6724) - 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 donít think these guys keep the beer brilliantly, so probably not Black Isle at fault.

jamestulloch (1580) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2012
Aroma: Classic chocolate and coffee aroma. Subtle vanilla notes.

Appearance: Dark brown body with ruby highlights. Small, tan head that lasts fairly well. Some lacing.

Taste: The same as the aroma - prominent chocolate, coffee and vanilla flavours. Nice roasted malt character. Quite bitter.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light carbonation prickle.

Overall: A bit on the thin side, but itís a decent, tasty porter.

McNeillR (1328) - SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Itchy burnt hay nose with an impressivel carbonated tarmac black body, producing a consistent but lop sided sandy swirled head. Almost too close to the Necafe ad for comfort. This vibe continues in a stirring cocoa bite in the initial taste. Keg assisted carbonation floats the hop flacour from the malt shadows. Smoky waft of a finish, with a drag of a linger.

Solid stuff. A session porter in every respect, comfortingly excellent enough to swap out a certain PubCo favourite porter on the keg line up for some of Scotlandís indie pubs Nobles Black Isle Total Tap Takeover - Keg, Nobles Cafť Bar, Edinburgh

fellebag (912) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2012
Draught. Half pint. London. Pours a slowly off white head which never settles. Amazing. Aroma of little to vanilla. Portery taste. Chalk. Chocolate. Not too much in there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Red, dark fruits & berries with some liquorice. Light to medium body, crisp and firm palate texture, short bitterness & a lingeirng tang.
