OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer, London. Deep mahogny brown body. Low bubbley tan head. Modest aroma of cocoa powder and lightly roasted dark malts. Taste is dry and roasty with a cocoa/choco flavor dominating. Distinct earthy bitterness. Tones of dark fruits and burnt coffee. Not very full. Softly carbonated, dry and chalky in the mouth. Roasty and bitter notes in a dry ending.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle shared by OleR. Thanks! Pours a dark, reddish brown, almost like coca cola, topped off by a thin, quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma is dry, powdery chocolate and cocoa, a bit like flour, and some weak burnt notes. Just a quick stab of sweetness hits the tongue before a big, dry burntness and spicy finish ends it off. Some dark fruity notes as well. Fairly light bodied. Carbonation is sparse, but what’s there seems rather sharp in a way. I would have liked more sweetness and more body on this one.

dEnk (3463) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Deep dark pour, medium head. Aroma is english hops, roasted malt and some fruit. Chocolate? Flavour is dry bitterness with strong chocolate, roasted malt and a light sweetness. Nice somewhat smoky roasty chocolate flavour. Draft is waaaay more chocolate-ey.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2010
500ml bottle at home: low hiss on opening. Black with chestnut edges. Very low large bubbled tan head. Nice aroma of cold brewed coffee with chocolate and a touch of ash. Slight herbal green behind the rest. Sturdy roast upon first sip, followed by a good amount of hop bite. Hop, coffee and some ash ride through the middle. Hop and roasted barley finish it out in the back of the mouth. Medium bodied, feels a bit thin on first sip but somehow "thickens up." I like this.

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
2010-10-02. Very dark brown-black body with a huge foamy tan head and lace. Flavour is quite dry with bitter roast and cocoa highlights. Lingering bitter finish, dry earthy accents. Aroma is modest, dry dusty malt, modest cocoa. 6+ Average plus palate is well carbonated. 3+ Solid but the overall impression is a bit too dry for my tastes. Bottle from GBBF booth

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
Thanks for bringin Jeremy. Thickish dark chocolate coloured body, no head, chocolate aromas and taste. Nice porter and real English chocolate treat. Nicely drinkable.

Vaiz (3142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle at home. Somewhat thin brew, but that is to be expected from the low ABV. Thick flavor though with an especially pleasant finish full of chocolate. Sweet and syrupy caramel together with bitter pure cacao. Very nice.
