This is very nice. Smell of dark fruits like plums, caramel and toasted malt. Taste initially was rather sweet but the bitterness comes through and there is plenty going on. A fine porter and one I will buy again

Bought in Tesco. Deep copper colour, thin white(ish) head that lasts well. Good nose of dried friuts and a good hit of roast malt. Full bodied, slightly sweet, robust hops coming through on the finish, this is good!

Bardzo dobre rubinowo czerwonawe piwo w angielskim stylu Portera. Piana wysoka i trwala. Karmelowy slod lekka orzechowosc i wisniowa owocowosc. Wytrawnosc niewielka po przelknieciu, w smaku slodkawe ale nie przeslodzone. Dobry porter

I found this totally delicious. It hit my taste buds in all the right places. Thin mouthfeel and thin body, with very low carbonation and virtually no head. Aroma is toasted cocoa and stewed plums. Flavour is vanilla chocolate at the start with tangy fruit crumble and burnt sugar to follow. Ends with a short medium bitter flourish.
