Hippoman (397) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Cask at IMBC 2015. Ruby black beer with a thin, cream-coloured head. The lots of dark chocolate and light coffee notes in a nose that’s a little overbearing. The taste has plenty of bitterness, with coffee and milky chocolate flavours, with bitterness continuing onto a finish that evokes marmite. Nice, smooth mouthfeel. This was recommended by another drinker as "the best dark beer I have had in my life" by I was rather underwhelmed.

Great porter, good coffee and chocolate notes on the aroma, and creamy mouthfeel, but enough of a bitter finish to make it relatively easy drinking for its abv.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3555) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2015
Cask at the GBBF 2015 after my iPod battery died but I have photographic evidence from my digital camera that I had this beer... Dark black like black coffee with wisps of tan foam around the edges. Smooth mouthfeel giving roasted coffee, chocolate and sugary/molasses sweetness. Good stuff but by this point I was definitely the worse for wear.

Bottle. Black with a small head. Some traces of chocolate with a medium body. Have read quite a lot of rave reviews about this one but it disappointed me.
