Empty scent. Maybe a little whiff of coffee. The taste of coffee and dark chocolate. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Okay but not so impressive. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

gildnerk (198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours black-ruby with a thick brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Rather thin taste at first, becomes richer and maltier towards the end. Not bad, not outstanding.

Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Thin chestnut with a really creamy white head. Chocolate and burnt malt aroma. Light and slightly bitter. Decent.

MPA (942) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle. Black with beige head. Aroma of dark, roasted malts, coffee and a little chocolate. Flavour is slightly chocolate sweet with a roasted malty bitterness in the finish. Quite carbonated - a bit too much in my opinion. Still a decent beer, which could easily go as a session porter. I enjoyed this more though as a draget at Porterhouse, Dublin, as far as I can recall.

Pours dark with fairly long lasting head. Strong malt character with taste of coffee and ash. Medium bitterness. The name says it all, so you get what you buy. Fairly good one though!

Pedro_Pinho (155) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2015
Nice malty aroma on this nearly black liquid. Smooth taste, I would prefer some more chocolate on this. Rather good brew with a suitable name, plain porter!

Keg tap at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Dark brown, translucent, with a Guinnessy beige head. Roasted coffee, hazelnut, malt and nougat candy on the aroma. Bittersweet nutty taste with a strong hoppy bitter finish which stops just short of too much astringency. Espresso and black cherry in the aftertaste. Smooth palate. Too cold, but if you let it warm up a bit it allows the flavours to shine through. A decent keg porter.
