4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 20/07/13. A black beer with a disappering off-white head. An interesting and tasty porter. Roasty and chocolatey and with coffee notes. Some sourness and some good hops. A lot going on but it all balances really well. I really liked this.

Black with a big beige head. Aroma of toast, nuts, roasted malt, light chocolate and some coffee. Taste is light sweet and mild bitter. Full body, oily texture, a tiny bit watery - could be thicker, light carbonation. Very nice.

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving no lace. Ton of yeast left in bottle. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Baked chocolate nose and flavor is baked/burnt chocolate. 330ml bottle, from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

Bardzo dobry porter. Palony ale niezbyt mocno. Glebia czerni i lekki nawet osad na dnie. Piana bezowa wielka i trwala. Aromat suszonej sliwki. Posmak palonosci z guma balonowa. wytrawny i rozgrzewajacy finisz, choc ma to piwo malo procent ale takie robi wrazenie

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark black color, not translucent. Aroma is a slight roasted hazelnut. Flavor is, nutty and quite dry. A lot like a Irish stout, rather than a porter.

Decent - pretty sweet porter with evident chocolate and coffee. An unrefined whiff of alcohol and raw sugar. Cherries and cough drops.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Very nice burnet aroma, its lacking depth though.
Looks good, pitch black, could use bigger and longer lasting head.
Overall a pleasant drink.

Brown to the point of black, foamy light tan head, looks great, like a real old fashioned porter. Head soons dwindles to nothing though. Coffee, dark chocolate, dusty roasted malt aromas. Flavour is a dry porter twang, coffee again, more dark chocolate and a suggestion of whiskey! Big robust body, but goes down surprisingly easily. Texture is smooth and a touch oily, with a minimal carbonation. Finish is long and nicely balanced with just enough hop bitterness so it never becomes too much coffee/chocolate. Very good.

Appearance: cola black, slick, medium brown head. Aroma: old well worn leather jacket, cigar like tobacco, spicy with a nice lacing of rich chocolate, vanilla pod too. Flavour: medium creamy mouthfeel, tobacco and leather, quite an enjoyable mocha flavour running through it with vanilla and Christmas pudding. Long bitter mocha finish with just a twist of smoke. Enjoyable.
