Not usually a porter fan but this is really good. Chocolate, coffee, not too heavy. Nice deep dark porter with good lacing.

GenkiGonzo (929) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2015
Draught at Black Sheep in Dublin. Almost black with a tan head. Milk chocolate aroma. Flavour starts milk chocolate then has a bit of roast coffee and finishes with some hop bitterness.

Ambro206 (330) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Una birra scura e complessa. Si apre in bocca con un importante tostato poi evolve in cioccolato e leggero fruttato. Bella pienezza e finale lungo. La carbonazione è forse eccessiva e non lascia una bella sensazione.

TheKernOwl (109) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Not just any port in a storm – a very milk chocolate-y, almost stout-y porter. Bit of juicy dates/caramel on nose. Hot choc (and stout-y) smoothness in the body.

doradobotella (192) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 31, 2016
Apariencia: Presenta color marrón oscuro cercano al negro y cubierta por una capa de cremosa espuma beige. Aroma: Con predominio de las maltas negras, que aportan principalmente notas a café y cacao. Sabor: Con un amargor discreto pero agradable, encontramos también matices a chocolate negro y café.

Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 20, 2013
Wow what a nice dry porter. Pours black with thin lacy head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, mouthfeel is smooth and dry, good length with flavours of roasted coffee.
