Idiosynkrasie (3639) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour late awakening and simultaneously diminishing, eventually small, frothy, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately dark malty aroma that can’t deny its grainy origin, some coffee and caramel, all with grainy residues, some husk. Taste is slightly bitter and roasty dark malty, hints of coffee surrogate, dark chocolate, some hay; soft carbonation, fluffy palate.

allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Provenance Wines, shared with Ashton McCobb. Cheers Ash! Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aromas are quite light, but liquorice first, then earthy and dark chocolate comes through as it warms up. Taste brings some coffee, more chocolate. Nice creamy texture. Decent.

AshtonMcCobb (2387) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
33cl bottle from Provenance Wines. Appearance - opaque black/brown with a lovely fawn head. Nose - earthy, nutty and maybe some liquorice. Taste - bitter chocolate and coffee grits with a creamy backbone. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a relatively fresh finish. Overall - a good Porter.

jamestulloch (1281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle from Provenance Wines. Black body with a thin beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma is exactly like a Galaxy Caramel, with a hint of coffee too. The coffee notes become more dominant on the taste, with the chocolate and caramel flavours playing supporting roles. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation fizz. A straightforward, flavoursome, easy drinking Porter.

Garrold (1149) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle from Dram Shop, Sheffield. Nearly black. Halo of tan head. Wet leather. Burnt plastic. Mostly fire damaged outerwear materials, then? Weird, but not entirely unpleasant. Taste is fruity dry. Dark chocolate bitterness. Medium body. Dry, ashy, bitter finish.
