thirstyrabbit (1698) - Tallinn, - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Copper body with a small head. Aroma has powdery cocoa and dried peas. Taste has sweet caramel with a teaspoonful of cocoa powder. This sounds like a rejected idea for a soft drink. I donít get this beer at all. Maybe itís because the label promised a porter (in CAPS!) and itís clearly not a porter.

Mishnok (53) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
From 500ml bottle. Ruby brown with thin head. Not a particularly strong aroma. Taste of coffee very evident. Hazelnut sweetness gives way to bitter. Body is thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martpez (110) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2016
A rather bitter porter. Feels on the hoppy rather then malty side. The hazelnut and coffee is subtle adding a little complexity to the drink it comes off much stronger in the flavour. For me its appeared as bitter and a little soapy. Perfectly decent but I wont be returning.
