Good strong taste of coffee malt but not to over powering. Best coffee style beer I've tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

All round goodness! Aroma of raisin, caramel, brown sugar, sticky syrupy cooked fruits. Taste is on the sweeter side but that’s alright with me. Lots of caramel sweet flavour, candied fruit, Demerera, slight hop bitterness at the end to give it balance. Really nice. Big fan!

Bottle, 24/11/12. Dark ruby with a speckling cream foam. Outrageous nose blending mint, black chocolate, blackcurrant, red apple, watermelon rolled in ash. Mixed up beautiful flavour with an undercurrant of melon and red apple scattered with ash, burnt hazelnut, flakes of bitter high cocoa chocolate. Up there.

Very dark red-brown beer with a thick head. Spicy fruit aroma. The hit on the tongue is bittersweet fruit with a hoppy twang. Finish is bitter mqlt.

HampshirePhil (155) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
330ml from Sainsbury’s beer festival - Dark brown almost black thick colour with light tan head. Rich and powerful aromas of coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malts. Strongly sweet initial tastes followed by prolonged bitter and harsh palate. Incredible milky textures and a wonderful blend of flavours.

RichardW (1544) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Pours brown and thin looking but is actually a fine tasting, full-flavoured porter. Soft on the palate, but has a hefty smoky peat aroma and great rich roast coffee taste, with red berries in the finish. Some sweetness comes in midway to counter the initial robust bitterness, with brown sugar in the aftertaste. Excellent.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A black beer with ruby red highlights that pours with a large bright white head. It has rich chocolate and coffee flavours, red fruit and liquorice on the finish.

Lots of coffee and some chocolate in a sweet, thin porter with very interesting overtones of smoked peat. Pleasantly surprised.

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Rich chocolate and deep roasted malt aroma, with only the slightest liquorice traces and mild acidity. Perfectly balanced sweet and rich chocolate, with bitter roasted malt flavour. Good hearty body, more reminiscent of a stout. Lingering alcoholic finish
