worldbeertaste (1711) - West Midlands, - 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.

nihtila (1288) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
1.8.2014. Very creamy brown head on black beer. Cant get much aroma but mostly coffee. Taste is also quite light with slight fruits, roasted malts and coffee. Light porter.

Renobob (1084) - BesanÁon, FRANCE - JAN 7, 2015
Bue à la pression. Belle porter bien dark black avec mousse épaisse et onctueuse très blanche. Arômes de chocolat, de café et de grains. Au palais on retrouve le café avec une corpulence moyenne, peu d'effervescence et finale riche et longue.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Cask at The Euston Tap, London on 9 Jun 2012. Poured black, with a dense beige head. Aroma of coffee, dried fruit and oak. Full to medium mouthfeel. Caramel in the flavour, with dark malt and liquorice. Finish was slightly sour, with cooked fruit and grain.

Bottle in the 78, Glasgow. Pours mmahogany with a thin tan head. Coffee notes as well as cola. Very thin tasting. Not the best porter.

jjsint (1162) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Keg tap at Cambridge Brew House. Very dark brown, but a little bit of light gets through. Some tan head and lots of lacing. Slight chocolate and latte overtones in the aroma, with a surprising dose of vinegar. taste is sweet and chocolatey but without much depth. Medium short finish, a touch of chocolate malt and fruity hop in the aftertaste. Too cold to fully appreciate the silky mouthfeel. This would be better in cask (in good cask condition of course).

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
0.5l bottle from lot 331. A gift from my kind girlfriend this one! Pours a dark deep dark amber ruby colored body with a huge really fluffy almost cloudy off-white lacing head on top. On the nose this is somewhat mild, but I get traces of nice mild milk chocolate and a faint roasted element in the back. Some dark sweetness also detected here. A faint but pleasant acidity, like coffee acidity also. I like. Tastes quite decent also I have to say. Lots of chocolate and coffee tones here. Itís not directly roasted but it has a dark malty element all the way. In the mouth itís really gliding and almost a little slick while itís soft on the bubbles. Yeah, itís really lightdrinkable this. Some traces of dark cardboard all the way in the back but itís not disturbing. I actually quite enjoyed this one. 30.08.2014

Weinig geur, iets van chocolade. Waterig, Ligt. Ik had wat meer verwacht. Alles zit er wel in Chocolade en koffie maar het is allemaal erg aan de ligt kant. Ik heb hem helaas niet heel erg koud gedronken maar deze Porter moet je volgens mij erg koud drinken. De fles is erg groot dus je kan gerust lekker doordrinken.
