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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pours a lovely opaque black with a tanned head that quickly disappears. Smells of coffee and tastes the same with a hint of chocolate. Very smooth drinking.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dense black pour, flat trickle of tan head. Burn wholemeal bread nose, slight sweetness. Fairly inoffensive initial taste, a little watery before things come together with a thick roasted angle, more bitter than I anticipated and a cheap caramel sweetness. Cigar bitterness on the palate linger. Decent but not extremely impressive.
