Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2009
It’s black with a red hue and a hug, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice and light caramel. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, licorice, caramel and light cocoa. It’s light and uncomplicated – a lot of flavor in few%.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours almost pitch black with a nice, medium, creamy, off-white head. Light roasted aroma, chocolate, milky, molasses and lightly piney. Medium carbonation, average mouthfeel. Sweet taste with roasted malts, nuts and light chocolate as well. Very nice and easily drinkable.

wheresthepath (2068) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2009
[Cask at Nag’s Head, Reading] Pours black with red highlights, small tan head. Very slight tingle of fizz on the tongue, yet still smooth. Tempting hints of smoke come through at first. Quite sweet as you drink it, with increasing amountsof chocolate coming through. The sweetness is well balanced by the bitterness of roasted malts and the very English-tasting hops coming through in the finish. A nice little easy-drinking & relatively low ABV stout this, I wish there were more like this in our pubs.

pivnizub (10023) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2009
Cask (Market Porter, Borough): Deep amber with reddish spots, creamy tan head with a good lace; solid fruity and dry roasty-malty nose with subtle caramelly undertones; light to medium bodied, solid dry bitter flavour with a light acidity; sourish-fruity tinge in the not too dry lingering roasty-bitter finish. Fine stout, well balanced.........

DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Roasty burnt malt, some sweetness does come in later but a burnt and grassy bitterness takes it away. Too burnt for me.
