KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 22, 2008
500mL Bottle. Black beer with a slight red glow to it. Small light brown head that was short lasting. The beer description on the bottle sums up the beer quite well "Roasty Malty Bitter Dark Ale". The beer has a roasty malt taste then a smooth malt/hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

thewolf (11878) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours deep, red-mahogany with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma is softly roasted, some dark chocolate. Light and fine carbonation - very fitting for a porter. Flavour is super soft, chocolate, subdued roasted. Finishes with a touch of raisins. A truly inspirational London Porter!

A head like the surface of the moon. Coffee and burnt white toast. salty at the back end. Quite strong in the end. Powerful brew. Prefer their APA though.

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
I like this beer, to often iíve had acrid porters that are tough going but this is surprisingly mellow. Itís a characterful beer that isnít overly intense in any way i guess iíd call that íbalancedí. In any case i enjoy the hints of roastiness, the dash of sweet malt and the dry finish.

Iíve had this one in New Zealand on my honeymoon. Visited the brewery too.
Really nice porter. Roasted, hoppy, smokey. Well balanced.
