Never noticed I hadnít rated this one yet. A beer Iíve enjoyed quite a few times over the years whenever I could actually find it. Produces up a lustrous, darkest ruby that shimmers when held to the light. At cellar temperature when poured it raises up a thickset, creamy tan head that adheres a frost down the length of the glass. Rich chocolate, Madeira and Kopiko toffee meets earthy, smoky peat, heavy loam and heather on the aroma - so thick and all consuming. Creamy, rounded and smooth on the palate. Rich, burnt sugar front; dark powdery chocolate comes in before a heavily smoky, bitter, charred wood backend. Nice level of earthy hops and malt on the finish. Very long swallow; a continuation of the complex flavours of the palate with inklings of liquorice, Madeira and ash. So much presence, so much volume for a pasteurised, filtered porter of such strength. A lovely brew. One to keep hunting down! (50cL, no date stamp, Liquor Barons, Ocean Reef)

Very dark, almost completely black, with minimal head. Nose is dark chocolate and some hops and smoke. Taste is of dark chocolate, caramel, dark malt. Bitter finish, like very dark chocolate. Minimal carbonation.

Dark brown, smoky and translucid color, tall and persistent head. Biscuity nose. Medium body and flavor density, good lengrh and balance, avg texture. Bitter but malty and crisp, carbonation also helps lift it up. Medium roast coffee flavor. Textbook porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful porter. The benchmark for all London Porters in my opinion. Complex and perfectly balanced. Chocolate and coffee with ideal bitterness. Lovely ruby black colour. Incredible.

MiamiBarman (26) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours out a very dark brown with a tan and sturdy head which leaves some lacing on the glass. Upon warming up, hints of caramel start to assert themselves, a little bit of syrup, toasted wheat bread. Upon the taste, I sensed an exquisitely perfect amount of carbonation and a pleasant medium body. More sweet than bitter but in a very pleasant way. Very drinkable so letís have another!

Bottle, 500mL. Home. A pitch black beer with brown hues on top. Medium grey beige head. Medium to poor persistence. Caramel aroma, smoke, coffee. Medium bitter, oily sugary sweet with a warming note. Medium body, medium oily texture, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, great aroma with this coffee touch. Nice bittersweet.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Solid dark brown with glimmering ruby highlights, a dense two-finger long lasting head and very nice lace. creamy lacing. Aroma of rich, ceamy milk chocolate, with notes of toast, prunes and caramel. The taste is predominantly bittersweet chocolate and mocha, with elements of dark fruit. Medium body, mild carbonation, exquisitely creamy smooth mouthfeel, and a gentle milk chocolate finish.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a minimal tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate nicely balanced with mild hops. Just exactly what an outstanding porter should be.
