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.

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.

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 it’s a decent, tasty porter.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, 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 Scotland’s indie pubs Nobles Black Isle Total Tap Takeover - Keg, Nobles Café Bar, Edinburgh

fellebag (1306) - 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

Keg - Fat Cat & Canary, Norwich. An opaque brown with a fine, lasting creamy tan head. Roasted malts and some choccy sweetness initially but otherwise quite tangy, particularly on the tongue. Red, dark fruits & berries with some liquorice. Light to medium body, crisp and firm palate texture, short bitterness & a lingeirng tang.

Off keg at rumsey wells in norwich. Quite disappointing, thin, not much flavour and too cold.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pint @ Hootnanny, Inverness. A valiant attempt. Dark marron color, not quite black. Translucent. Good collar, lacing, beautiful beer, actually. Very light aroma, sweetbreads. Medium body, bigger palate than Guinness. Not their best, but pretty good.
