Mr_Pink_152 (1670) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Tried at the Lincoln Beer festival 2015. Black colour with tan head. Very sweet chocolate aroma. Flavour was also sweet with more chocolate and dark fruit.

ManVsBeer (5477) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Cask @ Duck & Drake, Leeds. Black with a thick creamy, slightly off-white head. Not overly stated in its taste, but there’s a lovely lingering milky smoothness in its aftertaste with plenty of chocolate. There’s lots of this in its nose too.

tombyars (1453) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Tasted this at the 28th Paisley Beer Festival on the 23rd April 2015. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with ruby highlights around the edges and a thin creamy pale buff head. Malty aroma with a distinct sweet milk chocolate powder aroma long in intensity. Rich and oily mouthfeel and excellent lacing. Dark malt complex gives a chewy moist maltloaf base with smooth milk chocolate and creamy vanilla notes. Very little in the way of hop resins detected in the briefest of aftertaste. Smooth, dark malty finish with creamy lactose notes really strong in the palate. This was a cracking porter on form and one of the favourites here at Paisley, where it quickly ran out. Highly recommended.

Beersiveknown (3755) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from alesela
opaque dark chestnut brown with dark beige lacing. Fruity with tobacco notes on nose. Lively carbonation, fruity, coffee, red apples. Quite a lot of fruity esters sharp, yet ashen, sour yet sweet. Quite dry finish, complex but a little overcarbonated.

gegwilson (1873) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle from York Beer & Wine. Pours deep brown, almost black with a good tan head. The aroma is coacoa and vanilla. The taste is quite fruity to begin with before vanilla and chocolate on the finish. Rather too much vanilla in this for my tastes and it makes it slightly too rich. Good beer otherwise.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Cask, Fly in the Loaf, Liverpool. Black looks with a medium sized creamy tan head. Very sweet choc laden nose. Flavour was similarly sweet with more choc and notes of dark fruits and malts. Not bad but nothing to bring the house down here.

JohnRMurdoch (3681) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2014
500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Almost black, reasonable head. Coffee vanilla aroma. Spicy vanilla flavour. Sharp with bitter aftertaste. Very average.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2014
On cask at Cloisters. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - dark chocolate with vanilla and a creamy backdrop. Taste - more creamy chocolate and vanilla loveliness. Some biscuit in there too. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and an elegant creamy finish. Overall - so tasty you could pour it on ice cream.
