Back for a one off and only because this beer is so immense. Siren really know how to do this. Great brewer, great beer, dark and sticky and full. Thanks Cotteridge Wines for sticking it on a growler. See you next year.

tasted at the brewery tap, nice light white froth, very dark, very good subtle malt and chocolate flavours, the high ABV is very well balanced against a background of hop flavours, a easy drinkable and very good porter, not really bitter but with just enough astringency to keep it interesting right to the bottom of the glass

Keg in Craft Clapham. Opaque very dark murky chocolate brown, tan foam creamy head. Nose is sweet sugary rich silky caramel, dark chocolate, molasses, yeast extract (Marmite), black treacle . As it warms up thereís some ripe dark fruit, prune.Taste is dirty, salty, Marmite, yeasty, earthy. Waiting for it to warm up because right now itís surprisingly savoury considering it smelled so sweet. Got some black treacle coming through but itís very savoury, salty and yeasty. Ok itís warming up and the dark fruit is coming out. Prune, raisin, slight red wine vinous.

Keg at CBC Clapham - London. Pours dark, black-brown with a mocha cream head. The aroma holds dark fruits, black currants, treacle, burnt wood, mellow chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich bittersweet chocolate, mild tangy rye, purple grapes, raisins, charred marshmallows, scorched earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation and velvety texture. Mellow warmth to conclude with charred wood bitterness, liquified chocolate, prunes, more black currants, subtle burnt herbs. Lingering dark fruit sugars. Good one.

Keg at Craft Beer Co SW4- 3 January 2014. Jet black, fluffy head, reducing to a faint light brown head. Aroma is full on chocolate. Taste is chocolate, mildly bitter cherry, initial sweetness followed by a very relaxed bitterness. Waited ages for this to warm up and glad I did. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at CBC Clapham. It pours a almost black body with a large creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet with big dark chocolate and red berries notes. Plenty of fruity character in this one with some vanilla and Christmas spices too. Taste is again quite sweet and big on the dark chocolate notes, alongside notes of vanilla, rum cherries, plums and coffee. Literally some very very classy and great dark chocolate. Body is silk in a glass with soft carbonation. This is a bit on the sweet side yet totally outstanding.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2013
Tap at CBC Clapham. Pours black with a thick and sticky tan head. Great lacing. Nose is big dark chocolate. High quality dark chocolate to be specific. Plenty of vanilla and spice coming through with some tangy orange. Very appealing. Taste is thick and bitter dark chocolate. Literally some very very classy and great dark chocolate. Moderate coffee/mocha tones, spice, earthy undertone, dates. Very smooth with long bitterness on the finish. Perfect sweetness to balance the beer. Goes down a treat. Sensational porter

Cask at Siren event, The Grapes, Oxford, 18th December 2013 Pours black with a small beige head, oily appearance. Some coffee lingering on the nose but like the ryesing tides you can detect the rye, this also adds a real fullsome body to this. There is a juicy hop edge to this and a soft bitterness. I had three of these so it suggests that I rather liked it, surprisingly easy drinking as well. A8 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 4.0
