Black body. Taste is dark with coffee and chocolate. Bitter after taste but still very drinkable.
A new favorite for me!

Sweet, malty aroma. Not much more because of thin head. Black as night, head is tan and thin. Toasty, coffee notes. Chocolate comes through, but is light. A rather medium body beer. Overall, a good beer to drink.

Bottle at an Ola Dubh "vertical’ bottle share. Pours a very dark brown color. Nose is slightly earthy and very roasty. Taste has some slight chocolate elements to it, and is also slightly earthy. Very smooth and tasty. Great base beer for aging...

-beer house, johannesburg- black with yellow head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and metal. Very fruity and slick palate. Aftertaste is coffee, sweet caramel, some noble hops and lingering sweet roasted malt finish. Overall: what a beer! Considering the low abv, it sure is a well made one. Delicious.

Smells like a bitter with some roasted malt. Lovely black color. Good full, balanced taste with a bit of coffee; not very complex but rather decent. One of the better porters I’ve tried though palate feels a bit thin. All in all quite nice.

Nice dark black with thin head. Has a full feel with smoky taste and smooth flavor with bitter finish. Hops are not overwhelming but noticeable and has a nice chocolate molasses smell and flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full black body with tan minimal and puncturing head, oily, smooth - the mouthfeel is great. Stron aroma of roasted malt, oak, coffee, darko chocolate and raisins. Taste is complex, full of dry roast and coffee, followed by chocolate sweetness and plums, then comes back to being dry in the coffee-ash aftertaste. A great english porter, gotta get some stronger and BA ones from Harviestoun.
