UPDATED: AUG 29, 2016 En fût "real ale" au Paramount à Manchester. Très rond en bouche. Mousse très onctueuse qui nappe le verre. Robe noire opaque. Goût de torréfaction amère. Bonne bière dans le style, mais rien d?exceptionnel.

Benzai (14103) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
Sampled @ GBBF Day 2. Opaque black color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, soft roast, liquorice, a slight sweet touch, slightly caramel and brown sugar as well with -eventually- a light malt bitter finish. Not bad, solid porter.

Glorious at the Wigan Beer Festival, no wonder it has been beer of Britain! Complex sugars behaving like molasses wild fire. Full on and testing taste buds that you would expect from the hop combo. Gentle heat like warm trade winds to finish. A classic, still brilliant!

Hippoman (646) - 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.
