Gary (1889) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle conditioned: A textbook porter, while a good thing, as I like the style a lot, this stuff could showcase more flair and balls, bit mellow. Turn up the richness. Make it darker brown rather than dirty mud colour. The flavours are chocolaty, bitter/rich, dryish. This has got some high scores so it agrees with others more, not bad but too mild for big numbers from me.

Bottle as festive porter at home
Spicey red Berried and milk chocolate on nose. Medium body, gentle carbonation, white toast, cocoa powder and redcurrants. Dry finish.

pivnizub (10182) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle(@Kris Wines, UK):A bit unclear, reddish-amber coloured, mid sized, not completely collapsing firm tanned head; moderate to solid aroma of dried fruits, plums, caramalt and ashy toasted malt; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, creamy MF, sstonishingly full bodied for a beer of 4.4%; lingering sweet-bitter finish, packed with chocolate, coffee and toffee. Wow, what a flavoursome brew. A completely unexpected british gem…

Znakomity i tresciwy porter. O czzekoladowym smaku i aromacie. Sporo mazi na dnie butelki pewnie pochodzacego ze czekolady. Piwo ciemne metne, z wielka bezowa i kremowa piana. Wspaniale tresciwe, wytrawne i gozkie. Nuty kawowe w tle tej zacnej czekolady. Polecam

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Hazy deep ambery brown colour, close to black, with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is nutty, caramelly, mild toast, some slight spices, big time chocolate, mild fudge and some slight ripe fruity notes. Flavour is chocolate, some nuts, mild ripe fruits, spices and mild toasted and liquorice notes. Excellent beer for being only 4.4 %. I wish more of the "big fanboy guys" would make attempts at milder beers rather than imperial something.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from West Country Ales, Cheddar, Somerset. Very dark brown, ruby hue with cream head. Darkly roasted malts with almost a scorched earth character, woody, bitter chocolate, quite a chalky note too. Lasting and bitter on the palate with a long finish. Decent.

Quack-Duck (9164) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2012
bottle from a abottle shop in Lyme Regis. Deep black colour, thin beige head. Light-bodied, super chocolate flavours, cocoa, coffee... very nice and smooth.

ALLOVATE (2911) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2012
Tasting from August 2011.
Cool but not cold. Pours a deepest, darkest, midnight brown that shimmers in the light. Not much action; a loose, frothy tan head develops and wanes back to a wafer thin pad with little lace. Mildly, tannic, vinous notes on the nose amongst hints of cola, cocoa, peat and top-soil, burnt wood and dank cellar must. On a sweeter tip in the mouth. Unexpectedly chocolaty to differ from the nose, like milk choc icecream, well rounded and very smooth on the palate. Nice malt profile, raw and rough dark grain flavours amongst wood, liquorice and roasted cacao beans in back to a velvety chocolate swallow that is oh so long. Mild burnt malt and vinous peak gives direction to the flavour, but it is mostly the sweetness that drives it. It’s firm body builds as it goes and I dare say this is not the most sessionable of numbers. But it is delicious. Very good stuff! (50cL, BB 22/11/11, Greendale Farm Shop, The Common, Exmouth, Devon)

IverPotter (5) - Lyme Regis, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2012 does not count
Bottle purchased direct from the brewer. Definite coffee overtones in the aroma and on the palate followed by chocolate. Decent, easy drinking porter.
