EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, - MAR 28, 2014
Half at the brewery shared with the thepeter at Thomas’s b’day drink. Opaque very dark brown, off white foam head. Another classic and brilliant porter from Brew by Numbers. Nose is chocolate, black coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is the perfect balance of flavours, not the coffee and roasted malt bombs that are popular right now. Luscious chocolate, moderate coffee and roasted malt, caramel, some dark ruby fruit notes.

johndoughty (4531) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Black with a small head.Lovely creamy flavour with a trace of coffee and chocolate. The flavours are subtle but still very impressive. Pleasant, refreshing and easy to drink. Even by this brewers standards which are pretty high this one is a winner. My best so far this year.

At a tasting, many thanks, almost no head, quite opaque dark brown color, aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate cake, flavor of coffee with sweetish malt, green peppers and metallic notes with a quite strong herbal bitterness, light pleasant sweetness. Good and highly enjoyable.

Bottle 75cl. 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
