Bottle. Black, frothy mocha head. Chocolate, coffee and toffee malts. Flavours of dark chocolate, Espresso, roasted malts, tobacco and a solid earthy hop bitterness intertwined from start to finish. A slightly thin mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phfyysik (706) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2016
Pours dark brown/black with big beige head. Aroma is very creamy, coffee, cocoa, caramel, some malts. Taste is also coffee-creamy, a bit milky, some sweetness and roasted bitterness. Quite watery and easy to drink. Little bit too balanced for me, but otherwise very nice easy drinkable coffee porter.

Shain (168) - ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle, 330ml. pours dark brown - black. Head is short pale beige. Nose is lovely, sweet dark malt, cherries, ripe fruit, caramel, slight hop scent, not much roasted scent. Mouth feel is watery with medium-thin body. Carbonation is soft bot notable. Tastes strongly bitter, mostly hop bitterness and slight roasted bitterness. Slightly sweet, very lightly acidic. Flavors of bitter hops, roasted malt, cherry, slight coffee-chocolate notes, some caramel. Nice, quite bitter, but not too much so, flavor is nice, but not very complex. Not highly roasted for a porter. Nice and strong overall.

Subtle chocolate, coffee and vanilla. I prefer their chocolate stout but this is very good.

WaddlingPlatypus (128) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016
330ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Dark in colour, pours with a thin off-white head. Aroma of black olives and dark chocolate. Burnt coffee, chocolate, and black pepper make up most of the flavour. Readily drinkable, with a smooth and pleasant texture.

HoopsandHops (39) - ISRAEL - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle in Jerusalem. Poured into wine glass at room temperature. Don’t have good lighting here, so the appearance is pretty black with no carbonation visible. Big three fingers of fluffy head that’s slow to settle and leaves lots of lacing in its wake. Aroma is rich roasted malt, brazilian nuts, some coffee, chocolate, prune, leather, toasted bread crust, yeast. That earns it a 10. Mmmm, taste does not disappoint -- rich roasted nuttiness, vanilla, sweet coffee, bitter chocolate. Finishes with a milky sweetness. Delightful. Body is medium-to-full, texture is...soothing? Soft and coats the mouth. Carbonation is soft. This is a home run of a porter and one I’ll be returning to.

Pours dark brown with a small head. Taste is nice but needs more body for my taste.
