thirstyrabbit (1330) - 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 don’t get this beer at all. Maybe it’s because the label promised a porter (in CAPS!) and it’s clearly not a porter.

50cl bottle at home from BeerRitz.co.uk. Body is clear deep amber brown, head is small, beige, mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is coffee, flavor is mild roasted coffee, hazelnut, dried fruits, light ash, chocolate. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty bitter, chocolate. Medium to full body, thin texture, average carbonation. Easy, tasty, great dessert beer.

SilverfoX (577) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2014
theres a mild coffee and nut thing going on in the aroma, dark amber coloured body and ive poured it so theres no head. the taste is a bit bitter nut then a quick smooth coffee but mostly some weird metallic taste is ruining it for me.
