Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2013
500ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork, courtesy of Kelvin. Lovely aroma of sweet coffee, chocolate, blackcurrant, burnt toast. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, light sourness, light smoked flavours, hugely complex and very well-rounded. Sweetish chocolate and blackcurrant finish, nice and smooth and full-bodied. Really hard to fault this one, delicious.

Bottle bbe 12.5.2017. Extremely foamy, big fluffy head. Aroma quite mild, molasses. Taste sweet, dark chocolate, slightly roasty. High carbonation cuts the sweetness. Tasty, but doesn't stand out.

Bonne porter de caractère. Qui développe de bons arômes de cacao et de caramel, on tend vers une stout tout en restant un peu plus délicate. C’est très bien.

Beese (2550) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Camden on 9 Apr 2012. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, light ash, leather and earth. Liquorice in the flavour, with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium to full mouthfeel. Finish was burnt malt, treacle and oak.

BlackHaddock (4115) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
500ml bottle: BBD 15/12/16, shared with my son in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury on 26/11/14. Dark pour with a good tan coloured head. Semi-sweet malts in both the aroma and taste, bitter chocolate and coffee coming through with a dry, roasted maltiness in the finish. A very nice Porter in deed.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Pours black with a creamy tan head that lingers for quite a while. Vinous aroma of roasted malt and dried fruit. Full body, creamy feel, soft carbonation. Taste starts off dry and spicy and has a nice woody bitterness with a long finish.

emartell (254) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - NOV 23, 2014
Aromas de fácil percepción pero a la vez ligeros. Sobresalen las notas a maltas tostadas, ligeramente café, pero a la vez ciertas notas herbales del lúpulo utilizado. En cuanto a su apariencia, color Negro con destellos rubíes, cuerpo medio, corona de espuma abundante de buena retención. Carbonatacion baja. En boca es suave, cremosa y destacan ciertas notas ahumadas. Al paladar es una porter en todo el sentido de la palabra. Suave al primer trago, ciertas notas a café y maltas tostadas, buen equilibrio entre un dulzor inicial y un amargor final ligeramente más marcado. Sin embargo destacan principalmente notas ahumadas que dan un buen final a la cerveza. En conjunto es una excelente porter. Muy rica y fácil de tomar, no permitiendo que se perciban sus 7%.

mikkos (221) - FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Black beer with a small head. A real dark ashtrayish stingy aroma. Dark malts, smokey, rye bread, hops. Taste is dark smoked malts with a hop kick, some ashtray. Mouthfeel is fullish, finishes bitter. A porter with a kick this is. Not very drinkable one either, takes a while to get this one down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
