beerfest5 (1062) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 15, 2014
Tremendous porter, truly the one that all others are based on or at least pay homage to. Aroma of toast and roasted malts with just enough resiny hop notes to provide the balance but not overshadow the velvety chocolate finish. Delicious

Mild hop and malt aroma. Nice clarity. Light caramel head and dark, deep ruby beer colour. Strong english smokey malt flavours, well balanced overall. OK mouth feel.

jan23778 (69) - SPAIN - JAN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Aroma of chocolate malt and suggestion of liquorice. very smooth creamy taste, coffee aftertaste and really well balanced flavours. Not much on the bitterness side making this complex but refreshing.

HeadyDE (425) - Delaware, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Growler fill at state line..nose is great coffee spiked with vanilla some toasted almond..mouthfeel is light bodied..quite clean refreshing easy to drink porter..not getting the usual porter chocolatey roasted character typical of American porters..but this is an English porter..does leave a good lingering coating of porter all around..pretty good but far from the best out there..

Una porter che ti riempie la bocca. Gusto molto ricco, con cioccolata, caffť, eleganti note tostate e sentori di frutta scura. Se erano davvero cosž le porter che bevevano i marinai londinesi, cíera da invidiarli! Il cuore di tenebra della piý tipica tradizione birraia della town, davvero eccellente.

exeter (196) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
A: dark chocolate brown with a fluffy brown to tan head as you would expect. T: chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts with only a slight bitterness to it. A semi sweet chocolate backing comes through the middle. Breadiness, smokiness, and toffee at the end. Hangs around with roasted malts. Itís as if Jesus returned and spat in your mouth. Heavenly.

jamestulloch (1050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Dark brown body with a medium beige head. Excellent lacing. Wonderful chocolatey aroma with hints of vanilla, digestive biscuit and Twiglet ash. Lovely flavour - peppery spice, chocolate, gingerbread and prunes. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light carbonation. A sensational, well rounded Porter - incredibly complex. I suspect it would be even better unpasteurised.

EyeAmBaldman (122) - Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours translucent black with a slight tan head. Aroma has zero hoppiness. Slick mouthfeel. Taste has hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Just a hint of bitterness on the backend. Been looking for this beer for months and it did not disappoint. This is a fine beer.

weedster (9) - - JAN 8, 2014 does not count
huge expectations can be the problem. well balanced, nice feel, but just too nice. would like some kind of twist somewhere. or just a bit rougher, darker etc. like the dryness, not so sweetness and overall taste.

campbega (32) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Deep chocolate aromas with caramel undertones.Pours a reddy brown with a head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smooth on the palate with slight bitterness. Not generally a porter fan but this one has really made me rethink that position.
