UncleKorm (1142) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle poured a clear translucent brown hue w/ an off-white frothy head slowly diminishing to a nice cap and good lacing. Faint aroma of roasted malts. Initial flavor is light acidic w/ a light roast in the finish. Taste is a pleasant malt and a medium roast and an unsweet caramel. Light to medium bodied, watery texture, soft carbonation, and metallic feel.

12oz bottle poured into a long stemmed tulip glass on 16-Nov-2015. Almost black in colour with a creamy tan coloured head. Aroma of cocoa and coffee. Creamy bittersweet chocolate and coffee on the palate and a little bit of sweetness remaining on the palate.

Barely any bitterness but very rich on aroma. Taste is thick, malty chocolate. Hints of a coffee/deep woody note. Good beer over all for a nice beer at dinner time.

No del todo redonda. Desde luego entra bien pero al final carga un poco. Difícil encontrar y tampoco tan especial.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Bottle from Foot of the Walk (JDW), Leith. Very, very dark brown. Lots of visible carbonation. Coffee aroma mixes with fruit and a bit of spice, almost peppery. Sweet caramel taste, a bit too cloying but still tasty. Gorgeous silky palette. Not one of my favourite SN beers but still well above average in general.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
355ml Bottle from The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £2.99 Black pour with a thin and diminishing, cream-coloured head. The nose is muted but some pleasant, rich cocoa does come through. It’s full of wonderful, indulgent dark chocolate flavours with some sweeter, creamy tones too. There’s also a yeasty, marmite bite which gives it a little welcome bitterness and prevents it from falling into the trap of being overly rich. Very good porter - I’d like to drink one a little warmer to fully appreciate the malt character.

Reimer96 (1647) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown with a frothy frothy brown head. Aroma of of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and some light floral citrus hops. Taste is is roasted malts, light sweet chocolate malts, nuttiness and a bitter hoppy finish that compliments the roasted malts nicely with a semi dry finish... Excellent porter.

Tried at Craft Beer Market YEG. Sierra Nevada tap takeover Nov 18. Not a big Porter fan so will give 3/5 for posterity. Sierra Nevada rocks! This just isn’t for me.

Excellent beer. The color, aroma and taste couldn't be better. Bitter and smoked flavor combined to create a great product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - a wlcome addition to the Wetherspoons craft beer range. Pours mahogany with a big frothy cream head. Fruity cocoa aroma. The taste starts sweet with blackcurrant and light spice before cocoa and coffee notes come through in the more bitter finish. Nice.
