Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 6, 2015
Can, 0.355l. Clear dark brown color with medium soapy light brown head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, pine, mango and flowers. Taste starts with light sweet cereals, caramel, citric acidity and dark fruits, follows by mild roasted malt and chocolate, mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Hoppy porter, happy drinker...

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Brownish black with a beige head. The aroma contains some caramel, toffee, and milk chocolate. The flavor is rather sweet with some toffee and caramel standing out. This is more like a brown ale than a porter. The aftertaste is a bit sweet as well. Overall this porter/brownish ale is a good one.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
355 ml can. Pours a black colour with a large creamy beige head. Aroma is very rich with milk chocolate, biscuit and roastiness. Flavour of rich roasted maltiness, chocolate, toffee, mild vanilla notes, grassy bitterness and licorice. Almost full bodied with velvety mouthfeel. Soft and smooth. Very good.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Shared 355cl can (with Simon) on 24th June 2015 in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Black with a tanned topping. Malts rule the brew from start to finish. Chocolate and coffee esters vie for your attention in the nose, these are joined in the flavour by vanilla and a sweetness that smooth’s out the body feel and gives the beer a rich depth taste. A very pleasant brew in deed.

355ml can @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is chocolate & caramel. Taste is super chocolatey with roasted malts, coffee and hints of liquorice. More chocolatey than most chocolate porters out there. Absolutely delicious.

Canned. Deep ruby black porter. Rich coffee and chocolate aromas, big ripe fruit flavours, with blackberry and plum notes. Initially sweet, but has dryness in the finish.
