downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2009
On tap at the Porterhouse, London 09/06/09. Served too cold. Near black in colour, with a tight, off-white head. Roast malt aroma followed by flavours of sweetish chocolate and bitter coffee. Ok.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
2009-05-15. Very dark brown body with red around the edges, creamy tan head and lacing. Flavour is quite pleasant, dry roast with notes of cocoa and mocha. Pleasant bitterness throughout. Roasty aroma, dark roast malt with a touch of coffee like roast, bit of hops? Smooth average palate is just a touch lighter than my preference. (3+) Quite a quaffable porter. On tap at the brewpub.

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2009
Draught at Järnet, Stockholm. Near black, creamy head. Spicy aroma of licorice and coffee. Dry and nitro-creamy, well rounded. Coffee and licorice dominates. Well drinkable with good late bitterness.

ComradeK (991) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2009
Pint on tap at the Porterhouse Brewing Co., Temple Bar, Dublin. Deep brown, nearly black colour, with a thick and silky smooth pale head. It has a very strong roasted barley aroma, and this is also the first noticeable flavour. There are powerful notes of dark chocolate and espresso, with a hint of fresh cream. It leaves an aftertaste of mountain stream water, in that it is crisp and refreshing, but with strong tannin notes. The flavour lingers, and it is pleasantly smooth on the palate. An exceedingly good beer.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2008
Nitrokeg at the Porterhouse, London. Brown black with a creamy offwhite head. Full of roasted goodness with a crisp hoppy finish. Guinness in Ireland was almost as good as this before they started pasturising it. Brilliant keg beer.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
Tap @ Porterhouse, London.
Pours chestnut brown with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Weak aroma, some nuts and lightly roasted. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly roasted, perhaps a bit one-sided with good chocolate and a roasted, dry aftertaste.

Cask at GBBF08. Very dark brown colour. Small frothy tan head. Thin mouthfeel. Vinous flavour, roasted and sour.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Third pint, draught, enjoying ourselves at Porterhouse London (“real ale Disneyland”). This one got a nice off-white, creamy head leaving good laceworks on the glass. Dark body colour. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Dark, slightly roasted, bittersweet malts in flavour. Velvet mouthfeel (05.08.2008).

Cask. Low yelloow fluffy lasting head. Pitch black body. Mild coffee aroma and flavor with little hops bitternes, low carbonation and a long aftertaste.
