madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2010
10th October 2008. GABF. Made with toasted coconut. The sweetness of the coconut offsets the porter flavours well, especially in the dry finish.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub
Dark brown color, near black, with compact head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Good body strength; soft mouthfeel; it has a moderate flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. Correct bitterness.
More Brown Ale than Porter, not enough round and chocolatey, but pleasant overall.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle… March 08 Tampa Bay Tasting... Clear, burnt orange brew (when held up to bright light); dark, otherwise. Metallic, minerally nose provides restrained notes of cola, chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. Robust. Well-bittered. Chocolate and roasted nuts. Medium length, smooth, creamy finish. Kudos to Degarth for providing the bottle!
