Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Modest carbonation. Tangy dry dark malts. Touches of lactose and dark chocolate. Earthy bitter coffee aftertaste after the dry finish. Standard porter done well.

Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle at the brewery. It pours near black with medium tan head. The nose is earthy, roasty, treacle, dark chocolate, rocky road and nuts. The taste is rich, roasty, toast, earth, dark chocolate, decent bitterness, coffee, mild acidity and peppery with a dry, roasty finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Rich and flavoursome. Very nice.

zacgillbanks (2158) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is an inky black beer that pours without a head. It has a rich liquorice, chocolate and red fruity flavour with a slight roasted and further creamy liquorice finish.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
(Draught at the brewery, 12 Apr 2014) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, chocolate, cacao and toasty malt. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, cacao, a touch of vanilla and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of milky sweetness. Well made and very tasty, exceptionally well balanced. My first from this brewery, but hopefully not the last. Lovely porter.

SamTaylor (4) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Darkest brown with small tan head. Nose is full of roasted coffee malt, slightest hint of hops. Lovely consistency in the mouth, although this bottle seemed a little flat. Big coffee flavours and suitably bitter on the back end. Overall, sticks very much to tradition and does so very well.

olio (5969) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
33 cl bottle
Dark brown pour, medium sized beige head. Oaty and malty aroma, some faint chocolate notes with mild wooden hints. Chocolaty malts and rye on the flavor, subtle caramel and dried fruits. Fairly easy to drink, a bit watery feel to it though.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours deep brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is quite dynamic, with predominating roasted malts, some baking cocoa, lightly tangy dark fruits, some milk chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with nice, velvety chocolate character, some bitter burnt wood and earth, charcoal, raisins and burnt toffee. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Robust roasted malt finish with some edgy baking cocoa, charred bread, hard water minerality and leathery fruits. Well balanced with nice complexity. Another winning dark beer from BBNo.

Idiosynkrasie (3636) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 22, 2014
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with late awakening, small, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Chocolately dark malty aroma, hints of cocoa, milk chocolate, coffee, which somehow can’t deny their grainy origin. Taste is roasty dark malty, bitter, notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee; full (somehow heavy) body,

Osprey87 (1405) - WALES - APR 19, 2014
Tap at BBN Bermondsy. Black, huge foamy brown head, leaves even lacing. Aroma - smokey roasted barley. Body - medium to light, quite smooth. Taste - tangy roast, slight soy and chocolate, a bit watery at times, finishes softly bitter. Aftertaste is sweet soy. Decent.

Beersiveknown (2785) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
dark loamy brown with frothy tan head. Cocoa and toast. Robust and rich, earthy roast barley, coffee and toast. Superb, reaffirms my love of porters.
