teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Backlog rating. Keg at Porterhouse London. It pours a dark mahogany color with a small beige head. Aroma is lightly roasty and earthy, mildly malty and caramel, with some notes of wood and coffee. Taste is lightly roasty, dusty, powdery, dry and earthy, with notes of grinded coffee beans, dusty old cocoa powder, earth, dried leaves. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, just decent

Damp aroma of dark fruits with some trace of soy and bits of cocoa. Roasted taste that unfortunately is a bit watery. Has some potential but is to thin

Flaska från SB. Mörkt brun med beige skum. Doft av rostad malt och choklad. Ganska torr, besk och lite syrlig. Kaffe och choklad i smaken.

@ Basunen 15-1-28: ganska lagom doft med tydlig kola och choklad. Smaken är åt det söta hållet men med små trevliga rostade toner. En helt ordinär men trevlig porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

didierlewallon (229) - ponferrada, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2015
Cerveza de color negro opaco, con una espuma beige no persistente. Aroma de chocolate y frutos rojos macerados en alcohol con leves notas de madera quemada . Sabor en boca con notas de chocolate y notas de fruta roja (cereza) y negra (ciruela madura), sabor a malta tostada, con una amargura leve y un final un poco seco, pero muy refrescante y agradable. Buena cerveza.

Very obviously a draught Guiness clone. Unfortunately they copied the negative aspects a little too closely. Very gassy and artificial tasting - if anything, even more so than the original. There is some roasty flavour up front, but this was so gassy that after a full meal I couldn’t even finish the pint - a rarity indeed!

patricks110 (2064) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Draught at Temple!Dark red-brown with a nitrogenated finger of head. The aroma has a mild roast with light caramel and chocolate notes. Smooth malt in the middle with a moderate bitterness on the finish. Pretty straight forward and a bit boring.

Aroma is caramelised roast tones. Taste is weak and sour, wondering if the bottle is bad somehow. Short and a bit biter in late taste. Either a bad beer or just a bad example of it.
