ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves good lacing. Roasty malt, mocha, milk chocolate and faint berry notes make up the aroma. Mild spice hops up front give way to smooth milk chocolate and black coffee in the mid-palate. Roasty malt in the finish leaves a nicely bitter aftertaste. A very enjoyable porter.

Jado (494) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a deep, virtually opaque, dark brown with a frothy tan head that lasts pretty well and leaves good lacing. Aromas of raisins, cocoa powder, black coffee, tobacco and a very light smoky note. The taste is rich fruit at first, giving way to a robust roasted coffee bitterness that lasts pretty much all the way through. Fruit, spice and a little smoke at the end. Full bodied with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Pretty great.

ianwelby (441) - SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Black beer with a thin head. Aroma is caramel and malt but lighter than I expected. Flavour has a strong malty element but also a twist of sour fruit. It’s a nice balance to make it a bit different.
