Chocolatey and malty with super high gravity. A nice creamy pour with a bit of cherry on the nose and finish. Great beer to share, with lots of interesting stuff going on.

emartell (255) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 20, 2014
Aroma algo inconsistente. Las notas que se perciben fácilmente son a chocolate principalmente y un poco a café. También se logra distinguir notas a malta tostada. En cuanto a su apariencia, el color es negro profundo, carbonatacion de media a alta, corona de espuma color café baja y de poca retención. En boca es suave, agradable, cremosa y con un intenso sabor a chocolate. Al paladar es muy sabrosa, aún que quizá un poco empalagosa. Al principio buen equilibrio, sin embargo al final destacan las notas dulces. Al principio se perciben notas cremosas e incluso lácteas. Posteriormente se percibe un ligero amargor y notas ahumadas, para finalizar con un acentuado sabor a chocolate y un poco de café. En resumen es una buena cerveza, quizá un poco fuera del estereotipo de una porter, pero con sabores muy ricos y fácil de disfrutar.

zacgillbanks (2553) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer pours without any sort of head. It has a very rich chocolate and cherry flavour followed by roasted coffee and more milk chocolate on the creamy tart red fruity finish.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bomber, aged 6 months. Dark mahogany color, clearish, with a smedium head with biggish bubbles. Medium appetizing aroma, somewhat complex roasted notes. Burnt malty taste, nothing that spectacular, a little boring actually. Palate has is a resinous, heavy mouthfeel.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bomber from Mr. A’s in Palatine, so could have some age. Pours a very dark brown with a bit of a tan head. Some dark chocolate, cocoa powder, more caramelly through the glass. The end adds rum raisin. More sweet than bitter. 13.8

Fin (7690) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Forest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 Pours black with light beige head. Smooth and creamy, roasty but not harsh. A little sweet liquorice and chocolate but a tiny bit thin even though its 8%. Its pretty decent but I wouldn’t rush out to seek it again. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

daje (2609) - NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Black body with a low dark brown head. Roasty aroma with soapy and fruity hop notes, cocoa and a subtle sourness. Taste is quite fruity for a porter, nothing wrong there, plum, orange, raisin, with a good roasty malt bitterness and dark chocolate. Massive in taste. Sweet chocolate aftertaste rounds it off with hints of coffe, a little disappointed with the finish as the taste promised so much more, though it doesn’t break the beer, it’s quite delicious.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Un bomber partagé par Patrick. Une bière que je trouve mince et aqueuse. Elle manque de tonus et a un léger goût de poussière. Décevant.
