OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Meny Oslo City. Tanned finger-thick cream head. Near black body with ruby edges. Coffee up front, set off by a whiff of dark dried fruits and mild earthy hops. Creamy mouthfeel, good body. Soft bitter-sweet malt flavor. Creamed coffee and gentle roast. Mellow coffee-accented malt finish. Another well-crafted bottle (i.e. pasteurised and filtered) from Cairngorm.

djoeye (2886) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014
Scents of roasted smokey chocolate malts, hints of hazelnut oil, dried berries, sweet mocca coffee. Body black-brown, head beige diminishing, moderate laceworks inside my mug. Taste of chocolate malts, nuts, dark berries, mocca coffee, hints of sweet liquorice. Smooth to palate, just a little dry. This moderate abv stout is really easy to drink, for those who normally prefer standard lagers/pilseners. Recommendable. (500ml brown bottle abv 4.4% b@Kjeller 5, enjoyed@home. 9feb2014)

black as the night. thin head. extremely nutty, smokey, cheesy? nah, that’s just the nut... hints of coffee and licorice. a little thin but easy to drink (can’t have just one) and exceptionally full-bodied for the abv. still, this is one you really want on cask.

500ml bottle at home. Pours very, very dark brown, with a tiny tan head, little lacing. Big roasted aromas though, coffee, chocolate, liquorice. Bitter taste, more coffee. Bit thin.

jamestulloch (2686) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose. Black body with a medium tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of coffee, plain chocolate and raisin. The flavour feels a bit diluted but there are faint notes of chocolate and prune. Thin body with watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A decent Porter but lacking depth and complexity of flavour.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
50cl bottle. Opaque black with a decent crema head. The nose has liquorice and charcoal with a decent chocolate/coffee note in the background. The taste has more liquorice, in fact salty liquorice. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly clean finish. Overall, good beer.
