tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in January 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin buff white head. Strong roast coffee granules in the long aroma. Silky mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a rich roast malt flavour early on which fades to give a strong mocha coffee and bitter chocolate tastes which dominate. Slight dusty hop prickle gives a brief resiny aftertaste. Touch of liquorice in the smooth, malty, dry finish. Tastes far stronger than og suggests. A cracking session mild, packed full of flavour which puts some stronger porters to shame.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2009
On gravity at the Portcullis, Bristol 10/12/09. Dark brown with next to no head. Very chocolatey in aroma and flavour, with a slight, bitter finish. Drinkable if not memorable.

RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Carlisle BF. Quite thin, but it is a weak ale anyhow. Hint of roast malt with a slight taste of cold coffee. Good session strength dark ale.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2007
Cask in the brewpub. Aroma is full on roasty but chocolate dominates, slight grassy hop character. Taste is similar full bodied and chcolatly for the % outstanding, grassy finishes slightly annoys me though.

mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2007
Cask @ Warrington Oktoberfest. Jet black. Roasted, almost burnt malt aroma, very bitter. Texture is very thin. Flavour is bitter with coffee, black treacle, dark chocolate and smoke present. A bit too bitter but a very unique drink.
