sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2012
50cl bottle, batch #2855, BB 04-2013, from Beer City. Couleur brune claire, cuivrée, col est fin beige, voire café au lait. Arôme est malte avec un bouquet café et noisette très agréable avec une pointe de malt choco qui vient en retrait. En bouche, bière très en ligne avec l’idée de café et noisette. Une fin de bouche restant dans le style anglais surtout au niveau du houblon Goldings. Fine note sèche en fin de bouche, pointe amer citronné qui se balance en parfaite harmonie avec le profile café et noisette. Se termine sec avec un côté grains-malt pâle et houblonné. Fini garde un rappel de style Cubano Expresso, en clin d’œil à une brasserie de Floride. Le tout est léger, une très belle surprise que j’ai hâte de redécouvrir.

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 8, 2012
Bottle from Tomlinson Beer Shop
Dark chestnut brown, thin bubbly off white head, some lacing
Aroma of dark caramel malts, light coffee, hint of chocolate, sweet dark malts
Taste of soft dark caramel malts, light soft coffee, molasses, bit of nutty malt, simple beer, not a lot going on here, don’t get the hazelnuts apart from a bit of nuttiness
Palate medium carb, thinnish body. Finish - more bitter roast in the finish and coffee, some rather over lingering soft coffee
Overall - It’s an OK porter, perhaps worth trying again on cask, bit too thin for me

(Bottled) The name of this is like some seductive drink that’s gonna give your palate a blowjob, though in reality its more mild and frigid ,not sure what I was really expecting. Ok good looking beer , resembles a beige mountain ,above dark brown liquid. Coffee roastiness , nutts , some floral hops showcased in a nice nose . Drinking this is not what i expected , in that i thought the beer would be more vibrant in its coffee nuttiness gimick , sure there is coffee and nuts but more reserved . Not oral sex , more oral massage .

PaulW (97) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Pours dark ruby, with creamy head. Smells of chocolate syrup. Palate of medium roast, tasting a little of lactose in the sweet beginnings. Chased with a nice hop hit, leaving some coffee/dark chic bitterness. Easy drinking and tasty, but not a real roasty porter.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle from Microbar, £2.39. Now this is going to make my end of year ratings very difficult, wonderful once again from Saltaire. A superb porter, hazelnut, coffee, caramel nose. Pours ruby brown with a fluffy beige head which quickly turns to a lace. Roasted malt, nuts, hazelnut and a hint of coffee taste. Smooth in the mouth, quite light with a low carbonation, bittersweet finish. This is a superb beer, very impressed.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2011
In a bottle. Pours a ruby colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of hazelnut, caramel and coffee. Similar hazelnut and coffee flavours, tastes like syrup rather than grounds. Some roasty malt coming through in the finish. Moderate carbonation and a little CO2 prickle.
