Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 8 April 2013. Poured black, with a thin tan head. Aroma of toast, burnt sugar and rye bread. Initial flavours of cocoa, fruitcake and roasted malt. Finish was moderately strong coffee, dark chocolate and some burnt malt.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Cask (handpump) at the Sir John Oldcastle (JD Wetherspoon) on 13 April 2013. Bit thin. Lots of milky coffee. Some bitterness too. Quite dry. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, not bad but nothing special. Seemed more like a generic dark beer with some coffee than a full on Porter to me.

witthatsbier (285) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2013
was the cask brewed in uk for wetherspoons,very little nose a bit grainy but no coffee tones,same for flavour bit bland with no coffee taste at all quite sweet and not very dry,with little finish and quite thin,a case of wetherspoons commissioning beers for the sake of it,they really should stick to well known countries with a brewing heritage and certainly not greece

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
JDW, Rochester. Dark with creamy head. Watery and greasy dark beer. Milky coffee and caramel flavours. Wishy washy. Not quite an epic fail, but heading there. Points for at least being drinkable, and also for being tasty, even if only in parts.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
On gravity at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol April 2013. Dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Slight roastiness, some sweet dark fruit and a dryish finish. A bit thin in the mouth and no coffee evident. So so.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Willow Walk London 22/04/13. A very dark ruby coloured beer with an off-white head. More like a mild really tasting dry and mild. Some dry roast in the nose and a little fruit in the mouth. Absolutely no coffee for me. A nice enough drink but not as advertised.

wheresthepath (1617) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Black with a moderate cream head and a middling amount of fizz. Thereís definitely coffee in the aroma, but itís rather lighter on tasting. Thereís roasted malt too and a little smoke, but itís rather thin and watery and the hops fail to show. On the plus side itís easy-drinking and strangely refrshing for a supposed porter, but overall itís rather insipid and disappointing. Shame.

PaulW (100) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Pretty ordinary stuff. Served too cold, perhaps. Has all the look of a porter, but the aroma was pretty slight. Taste wise there were hints of what you might expect; coffee and chocolate, with a bit of balance from some pretty non- descriptive hopping. Pretty bland.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in April 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark garnet in colour with a thin creamy buff head. Caramelised sugar in the long aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and superb lacing. Dark malts give a maltloaf base with milky coffee and sweet toffee notes through it. Earthy hop resins are short lived though. Malt in the finish with hints of vanilla fudge, syrupy dates and juicy raisins evident. This porter was on cracking form and well recommended.
