Deep black colour with a medium brownish and lasting head. Sweet malty aroma and a rather complex taste of coffee and chocolate and spices. Full body with a smooth palate.

The aroma is chocolate and coffee along with deeply roasted malt and hops. The appearance is a dark reddish brown with a nice head. The flavor is also full of deeply roasted malt and coffee. The bitterness in the aftertaste is just right. Smooth palate. Its pretty good.

adrian910ss (2565) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Pours a dark malty color with a thick creamy beige head. Looks a bit like Coca Cola. Smell is complex. Very smokey scent, with hints of roasted coffee,caramel,vanilla and fudge. Taste is smokey, like beef jerkey, with hints of caramel and thick sweet cream. The first few times I had this beer, I thought it was average and overrated. However, the taste grows on you and you learn to appreciate the complexities put into this beer. Very good porter.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Pretty surprised this is a top 50 beer. Aroma is pretty nice, with some chocolatiness and maltyness. But the taste is really unassertive, boring... Iím not a fan of british hops, and this is a perfect example why. They really do nothing for the beer. Bitterness is near non-existant and hop flavors are basically not there. Palate is pretty watery and thin, too.

Pours a coffee black with a nice tan head. Coffee mocha aroma. Taste is extremely smooth, coffee, chocolate, with a clean bittering that goes perfectly with the beer. Very good brew. Maybe because itís also a smooth drinking tasty combo of my 3 vices... coffee. chocolate. beer. Mmmm.

16.9z bottle. Best before 29 Aug 2005? Dark, almost opaque with a tan head. Roasted coffee and caramel in the nose. Smooth in the mouth with chocolate and caramel notes, but the lingering flavors are big. Black coffee, and dark roasted malts followed by a dry, bitter hop flavor. Dark, smooth and rich. This is a prime example of the style, regardless of the dating.

Pours balck with thin off white head. Nice aroma with a bit of sweet chocolate and coffee. Quite refreshing dispite its heavy looks. A good porter above average

Bottle in the UK. A rich deep nose of coffee and a hint of spice. Very black with a quickly dissipating head, but that could have been the way I poured it. When you taste it thatís when it becomes a winner. The mouthfeel is stunning - smooth and steady, and it seems to roll around your mouth of its own volition, hitting each taste zone as it goes. As it goes down your throat it leaves characters of dark malt - the usual raisins, chocolate and coffee with a teeny bit of licorice. But in the lingoring finish these all blend into a harmonious richness that leaves you wanting more. This is a good un. I like this brewery, and this is one of the two best Iíve had from it, if not the best.
