Truly this beer is on another planet, fortunately when you drink it you are able to attend this planet and enjoy a full beautiful flavour with an incredibly balanced, full, malty aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Opaque dark brown with a slim tan head. Aroma has roasted malts, chocolate, nuts, butter - make that peanuts. Taste is chocolate, dark malts, coffee. Very nice, long bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Damned fine stuff.

Gorgeous stuff. Quite a strong ale with a very smooth finish. Hints of toffee and hops on the smell front. Taste is rich and smooth hops with a slight metallic twang which disappears after the second gulp. Not too gassy. Goes great with a bit of Emmental cheese. Top ale! One of my faves.

Embrouille (2806) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours a beautiful dark ruby, almost black beer with a creamy tanned head. A rather heterogenous appearance when poured: Some parts of the head are almost beige (around the glass), other areas are whitish. An impressive nose of chocolate, seaweed, caramel and hops of an excellent blend. The taste is of the same but with hints of wild strawberries. Wonderful full flavours and extremely well balanced. Licorice with a hint of wild strawberries again in the finish. This beer leaves a beautiful lacing. What a beauty! An excellent brewery too..

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

Smells very dark cherry, molasses and roasted sugar. This head, lots of bubble. Very dark cherry red. High carbonation, gorgeous. Very very nicer.

scotty (1033) - SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2013
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!

Philym (722) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown with a two finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Raisin, prune, caramel, toasty, floral, vinous and notes of banana. Taste: Low/medium sweetness, medium bitterness and sourness, dried fruit and caramel with a roastyness. Palate: Smooth full texture, and a medium body and mouthfeel. Average carbonation with a fairly abrupt finish which leads to a caramel end. Comments: Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Bottle at The Penguin Beer Bobbing/13 Beers of Halloween tasting. Clear ruby under a fine tan slick. Butter, fig, cream and rust aroma. Warming and dried-fruity beyond with notes of malt loaf, cherry stone, raisin, oak and rye bread. Glow, silk and condition. Impressive.

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
