Bottle, from Budgens, at JF’s Calcutta Cup mini tasting - 02/02/13. Extreme dark mahogony brown approaching light black with a thin tan head that clears to the edge. Nose is big on roast malts, liqourice, burnt toffee, nutty tones. Taste comprises roast malts, milk chocolate, biscuit, liqourice, nutty. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dryish in the finish. A decent solid enough porter.

Bottle from Ales by Mail. Pours black as Coke with a creamy tanned head. Aroma got some burnt and charred notes, caramel and grains, chocolate and liquorice, a solid aroma.Same goes for the taste, with a more dominant charred note, weak resiny hop finish, a bit watery body, but overall a solid porter.

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. home. After a long shift boy did I need this!! Big roasted malt flavour. Super clean Simpson’s malt characteristics. Lots of chocolate, tar, molasses, leather, blackcurrants, prunes, redcurrants and cold espresso. Some treacle and caramel. A dry but fruity finish which is long and lasting. Good creme like an espresso. Great classic porter.

AWS9 (634) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle. Nice black-amber pour with a foamy white head. Chocolate malts, touch of mocha. Quite a dry and quick finish, which makes it fairly drinkable for a darker beer. Very solid.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
September 10, 2014 - from a 500ml bottle - thanks, Ang! Pretty much black pour, thick-looking frothy beige head. A simple and clean nutty/light coffee porter, reasonably dry, mild alcohol, enough bitterness to balance - average body, finishes fairly quick, a dry roast aftertaste - sort of coffee beans and dark chocolate - solid.
