Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice, fresh and interesting, despite the age of the bottle, with black olives and chocolate, light vanilla; hops. The body is lean, there is a good chocolate flavor, with a bit too much roasted malt for my taste; in the final there are some roasted nuts too, quite dry final, almost harsh burnt character. Good enough.

Brown color. Some roasted malt aroma, with some hidden hops. Quite good Stout, with a one dimensional roasted malt character.

Leighton (18082) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2009
Delicious, Rich, Bold. Had some on tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a black-brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is all burnt malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor reinforces the aroma, with some sweetness to balance the bitter, roasted malt backbone. Heavy mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy on the finish, this beer leaves a pleasant, rich, bitter, burnt flavor on the palette. Again, delicious.

rlgk (17322) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 Really black, not much of a head. Aroma is clearly hoppy, but also brings chocolate. Flavor is a little roasted, chocolate and maybe some cocoa. A little bitter.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2005
650ml bottle. Dark brown, black colour, roasted malts, chocolate, slightly grainy feel in the mouth with more tart roasted choc malts on end. Not overly interesting but it does what it says on the tin

Theydon_Bois (16482) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle on the train from Hereford to Inverness, cheers to DW, 18/10/13. Mid black with a big old light tan head that retains well - this porter is pleasing on the eye. Nose is light roast, brown sugars, cocoa, not getting much coffee from it though. Taste comprises light roast, cocoa, faint coffee strains, molasses, brown sugars, leather. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. An ok drinkable porter, not too much depth though.

yngwie (16424) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2006
Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. It pours almost black, with a beige head. Mocha and fruityness in the aroma. Nice but lacks complexity. The flavor is chocolate and coffee, once again nice but lacking complexity. A bit thin and one-dimentional, with a dryish finish. It might seem uninteresting from my description, but it’s quite well crafted and I would like to enjoy it again. (060824)

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Bottled, alc. 5.3%
Opaque black, small tanned head. Aromatic hoppy nose, a bit roasted. Medium-bodied, roasted, very pleasant coffee in the finish and aftertaste. For this ABV, excellent porter. (7/4/8/4/16 3.9)
Re-rated, bottled 5.7%
Dark, almost opaque black. Small tan head. Very chocolaty roasted nose with notes of hops. Medium to full-bodied. Starts roasted with cold coffee then has a long burst of hops. Long roasted and hoppy aftertaste. (8/4/8/4/16 4.0)
