humlelala (984) - - NOV 9, 2012
(33 cl bottle from Bunker Beer) Pours black with frothy, tan head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is roasted malt with pleasant notes of herbal hops and hints of nuts and booze. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and an alcoholic, warming finish. Taste follows the nose but the alcohol gives it more of medicinal character. Would probably benefit from some aging.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Earl of Essex drunk on a train. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate sponge cake and spicy slightly alcoholic aroma. Rather good I thought. Simple. Chocolate. Light cocoa chocolate. Then some heat on the finish. Simple and doesn’t keep the heat out of the finish. Simple plain strong chocolate sponge porter. But fine.

Erasmus_ro (1374) - Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle, BBE 31/12/15. Pours a dark brown, black with a fairly large, dark latte colored head. Aroma is strong liquorice, some salty liquorice, light ethanol, medium roast. Taste is strong liquorice, quite roasted, lightly smoky, light chocolate, more in the aftertaste. Some citrusy hoppiness. Medium with medium carbonation. Enjoyable, more balanced than I make it sound. It’s not a liquorice bomb by any means. Has that nice, tangy mix of roast, smoke and citrus(?) that great imperial stouts/porters usually have.

AshtonMcCobb (2574) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle and beer dudes tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank, thanks to BenH again I think. Appearance - opaque brown/black with a thin crema head. Nose - booze, tannins and fruitcake. Taste - booze & tannins again. There’s a finish that is reminiscent of burnt raisins and liquorice. Palate - medium to full bodied, big tangy and boozy texture and a reasonably balanced finish. Overall - another beast of a porter/stout from BenH. Interesting and enjoyable.

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours almost black and has a great nose on it. Sweet dark roast with layers of nuts, caramel, espresso, and a slight oxidized note that is very appealing. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and is a tasty complex brew. Glad I got to try it.
