gegwilson (1939) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from the National Winter Ales Festival, Derby. Pours deep brown, almost black with a cream head. The aroma is mocha, as you would expect. The taste is coffe and chocolate also with some light spice. The body is a bit on the thin side. Otherwise very good and goes down very easy.

A dark beer that has a great coffee taste. Dark beer that is wonderful in the winter time.

jinroh (671) - ESTONIA - APR 20, 2015
Pours dark brown, thin beige foam. Looks kind of transparent although it is too dark to see through. Aroma has some toffee, coffee and roast malts. Sweet dark fruits also there. Taste is nicely hoppy, dark fruits, dried figs and plums are really evident, hop bitterness strong at first, later giving way to lingering roast burnt bitterness. Actually better than I expected, not a big fan of low alcohol coffee beers but this one is really enjoyable. Not much coffee there though.

Jado (649) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2015
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with lighter highlights at the edge and a small but collapsing latte-coloured head. Aromas of raisins, coffee, baked apple, vanilla and chocolate, though lighter than expected. Taste is gentle dried fruit at first but soon overtaken by a firm black coffee bitterness sweeps in. Some chocolate and vanilla and a hint of tobacco at the end. Light bodied but with a nice underlying creaminess. Light fruity aftertaste. Very decent porter.

alomtnez (165) - SPAIN - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Average beige head with moderate retention. Clear very dark brown colour (black appearance). Aroma is dried fruits (prune), chocolate and brown caramel. Taste has hop presence, floral, roasted malt, some fruitiness, liquorice hint and some diacetyl sign. Watery palate, medium body and medium carbonation. Quite a good porter.

MMR (517) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Decent Porter but nothing much out of the ordinary. It has an aroma of hops and chocolate and is not too outspoken.
