Chocolate and caramel aroma. Dark brown with thick beige head. Sweet taste with chocolate prominent balanced by nice toasted malt bitterness. Palate thinner than I expected.

bottle at home. Pours marroon brown, not expected this colour for a porter. The nose holds the middle between cooked patatoes and milk chocolate; weird. Light, watery alike body with mild bitterness, taste is bland and only chocolate malts.

Yeah, its mostly about dark choco with nice vanilla touch, mild and smooth roasted malt presence. Very decent, but simple. Modearate sweet with moderate roasted bitterness in finish.
Lovely beer tho bit too thin

Bottle at home. Very dark brown with smal beige head. Toast, roasted grains, almonds, light cocoa. Some tart berries and light grass. Medium bodied with slight watery feel. Roasted bitter and slight tartness, sweetness is very light. Doesn’t feel like 6.5% at all.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Bottle. A murky, deep brown to purple colour with a thin and none lasting mocha head. Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, stewed fruits and roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, a sweet prune, raisin and sour fruit pudding flavours and a warming alcohol flavour. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A bittersweet, burnt finish. Not a fan of this, couldn’t finish it.

Sampled from a 33cl bottle from Waitrose. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Roasted hop flavours and plentiful taste of smooth chocolate, with hints of vanilla . Rich and extremely rounded flavours. Not particularly bitter, but very pleasant to drink.
