On tap at the Southern. Appearance - opaque black with a nice crema heas. Nose - dark chocolate and coffee. Some creaminess. Taste - more of the same. Chocolate coming through more. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall - good example of the style.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Bottled 10/01/14. A black beer with a grey wisp of head and a bit of beige in the lace. A bit of smoke in the otherwise thin nose. Decent dark malts in the mouth. Chocolate and, again, smoke. Easy to drink and pleasant enough but a bit underwhelming really. Score 3.3
Subsequent ratings scored 3.8, 3.4, 3.8 and 3.6. Average becomes 3.6

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle - Very Dark Brown (almost Black) in colour. Very Malty; roasty malts, coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, hints of smoke. Fruity; dark fruits, prunes, raisins. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Decent malt/fruit/hop balance. Smooth; subtle, tasty. Sweetish roast malty, quite dry, some hop bitterness in the finish. Liked this a lot. Nice Porter!

leebotton (146) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Metallic coffee aromas. Nice black, with minimal dark tan foamy head. Flavour underwhelming at first but then gives way to an old ale like taste followed by a rich fruitiness. Not hugely characterful though. Very tingly.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Pours black. Nose of caramel, chocolate and coffee. A bit funky on the palate, quire fruity for a porter but also dry with a hint of smoke. (Rating backlog tasted on or around 02/06/2013)
