30th June 2010. On taop at the Kings Head freehouse Tollesbury, Essex. Clear brown beer. Not much head. Soft smooth palate. Sweet hazlenuts, red fruit in the undertone. Mellow chocolatey coffee. Some coconut as well. Finishes soft with some sweeter red fruit coming to the fore. An outstanding English draft beer - best I have had in a very very long time.

Almost light brown color, very interesting. Could’nt expect nothing but the taste was very good, impressive, has it’s unique taste at the very first second - taste of a good coffee, then some sweet caramel and hoppy ending. Although it evaporates quite quickly it still keeps it’s unique taste. Hazelnut reveals later, at least after 15-20 minutes of drinking.

Dark amber? A very light colour for a porter. Excellent, well behaved bubbly white head and superb condition. Flavour is... wow. Really unusual stuff. Thick and rich chocolate, the coffee is clearly freshly ground and a gorgeous, lingering nutty peat finish. Delicate but glorious lick of hops too. Really interesting. Smooth and creamy and all round excellent.

Ruby brown with metalllic fuggles, peppery goldings plenty of coffee and a hint of chocolate on the nose. Fluffy cream head soon fades to just a lacing. Roasty with lactose flavours, hazlenut and a hint of coffee with a bittersweet finish.

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.

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.

lembeek (142) - ITALY - SEP 1, 2012
Colore rosso/bruno, limpida, con una schiuma abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Aroma di malti tostati con note erbacee, di cioccolato, caffè e vaniglia. Attacco dolce, maltato, che lascia subito il posto a una buona acidità. Buon corpo e scarsa carbonatazione. Finale secco, amaro. Senzazioni retro olfattive di cioccolato e nocciole.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. This really did give me such a pleasant surprise. Recently I’ve been getting quite bored with coffee porters or stouts as I find them a little one dimensional. The hazelnut has produced the extra dimension on this occasion. The proportions of coffee and hazelnut really have been applied with a deft touch and it’s clear that the brewer has a very good palate. I will look out for their beers in future.
