EdKing (1903) - London, Greater London, - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle at the launch party. Pours opaque black, with a tan brown head. Nose is rich and malty. Chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, prune, roasted malt. Taste is delicious and reminds me a bit of Carnegie Porter but even richer and better. Nice balance between chocolately, roasted malt and dark fruit, prune, raisins and a bit of vanilla. Very good porter.

Rune (8180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
1/3 pint, 6.1 % abv, serving from keg, guest beer at BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Faint low fawn-coloured head. Opaque dark brown body. Spotty lacing. Rich smell of confectionery malts, nicely roasted. Blended flavour profile of brown and black malts, including coffee and cocoa. Backdrop of fruity hops to a malt-bitter ending. A pleasant, well-crafted porter (London 24.09.2014).

Fad, Mikkeller & Friends. Mørke brun, beige skum. Relativt let i kroppen, lakridset aroma, nutty i munden og ret bitter finish. En slags modern british porter

eduamon (15) - SPAIN - SEP 26, 2014
Malty, a bit of chocolate but not too much. Faint smell of something like vanilla? Creamy body even though it could be a bit heavier

jamestulloch (1448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with ruby highlights. Large tan head that holds well and leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of leather, ground coffee beans, earth and leather. Flavour of tobacco, chocolate orange and filter coffee. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Light carbonation. It’s a bit on the thin side, but this is a very tasty Porter from a top brewery. This bottle was 6.1% ABV.

Color negro con reflejos caobas y espuma beige. Aromas de café, tostados, azúcar moreno. Cuerpo medio, inicio ligeramente dulce con final amargo tostado y toque de café. Muy rica.
