flip_soeperman (687) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
Really nice smooth silky full bodied porter with a little honey but mostly roasted notes and chocolate. Good bitterness, nice and almost sticky. Alcohol well hidden, something in the aroma I couldn’t name, but definately good stuff

Pours a jet black color with tan head. Coffee, some cocoa, and a bit of smoke on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a smoked coffee note, interesting.

jimhilt (2449) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a five-finger, thick brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Nose is chocolate and molasses and flavor is smooth chocolate and molasses malt. Higher ABV is hidden. Decent Imp porter. $4.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA. Bottled Feb 19, 2014.

maneliquor (3379) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a thick and dense tan head. Nose is quite one dimensional and a little boring - kind of like a tim tam in that it’s loads of chocolate biscuit and not a great deal of anything else. taste is a different animal though. Loads of burnt fig, wet wood, mild smoke and vanilla with a heavy but very smooth milk chocolate finish. Smooth as they come and the booze is hidden expertly. Great stuff

Garrold (2211) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Not far off black. Thin, sticky, lasting, tan head. Chocolate malt. 60% cocoa solids chocolate. Marshmallow. Vine fruits. Booze. Taste and palate are luscious, thick, malty, fruity sweetness. Doesn’t feel 11%, by a long way. Finish is boozy, dry, cocoa bitter. Preposterously silly, easy to drink. Lovely.

36cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2012, from Geers Oostakker, complex Porter, sweet/roasted and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, yet expensive!
