"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? We’d rather say passionate. We marry the soothing flavour of this complex malt barley grist with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a beer for your more self-indulgent moments. Great for lazy afternoons or long evenings, it is best served chilled with your feet up, watching the sun go down. Like we say – chilled."
"A silky-smooth suppertime beer, created using dark malts and chocolate. Pronounced vanilla notes fuse the chocolate and malts together to give a rich, warming, flavour that also works well as a complement to fruity desserts, summer puddings and autumn berries."

Dark brown, with a short lasting off- white head. Medium body, with just a bit of carb. Aroma of drinking chocolate. Tastes of rich chocolate with a touch of vanilla. Malts definite!y take second billing.

0.3 bottle poured into sensoric glass. Dark brown with quite short-lasting, tan head. Plenty of dark chocolate, some caramel and little of coffee, hoppy and roasty notes. Taste, again, is dominated by chocolate. Slightly sour from dark malts with herbal-like hoppy notes at the end. Light bodied (even a bit watery for a porter) with low carbo. Decent.

A foam that is almost too much is the first sight greets when pouring. Fantastic light brown foam that slowly accumulates to a fragrant dark brown material. From the glass flowing a delightful aromas of dark chocolate, and even at distance I sense that I am sitting with something delicious in the glass. Besides chocolate it has a malty aroma where also hop occurs. The coarse foam remains on top after several minutes. The taste is not as expected a deep chocolate flavor, but chocolate is the main theme of this ale. Good rich dark bitter chocolate taste immediately through, but there is also room for a slightly roasted malt with slight hints of coffee. The aftertaste is limited to a little watery feeling with slight hop bitterness.

Rich dark brown colour with a beige head. Smells of roasted coffee, caramel and malted chocolate (think Horlicks). It has an eclectic taste of malt, fruit, chocolate, hops, and coffee. It is both sweet and bitter and leaves a lengthy taste of bitter mocha in your mouth.

koshack (1219) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Piana drobna, brązowa. Dziurawi się i opada. Kolor mocnej herbaty, klarowne. Dość jasny jak na portera. W aromacie nuty porterowe, trochę ziemiste, czekolada i lekki chmiel. W drugiej nucie wyraźne ziarna kakaowca. Bardziej kakao niż czekolada. Przyjemny, lekki, świeży zapach. W smaku bardzo wyraźna nuta czekoladowa, sporo kakao. Właściwei tłumi wszystko inne. Lekko kwaskowate od ciemnych słodów. Lekkie ale nie wodniste. Dobry angielski porter, chociaż pretenduje do bałtyckiego.

Gaelic (135) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2015
Very nice bottle. Soft bitters with a very clear taste of not so bitter chocolate. First bite is suprising but it ends a bit disappointing in the development of the taste. chocolate, roasty, creamy,

Was really looking forward to this because they had run out at the last beer festival I was at. It's ok but I was expecting more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle shared. Pours dark cola brown with a thick creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, some caramel, lot of chocolate. Taste is similar, not more than some roastiness and chocolate. Medium body, watery texture, too thin, a little more carbonated. Disappointing.
