The_Osprey (3507) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
355ml bottle at a BYOB, no date or ABV details. Black, small brown head endures. Aroma is treacle, ash, a little raspberry and some bbq sauce. Also a little metallic. Body is medium, light carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is twiggy, roast malts, very astringent and ashy, burnt wood, metallic, soft sweetness. Pretty nice stuff.

tricksta_p (2094) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, roast, chocolate, cream, coffee, a hint of smoke, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium roasty and hoppy bitter finish. Body is medium to heavy. Wow, this is great Porter, there’s a lot going on. Good balance between roast and hops.

I might have drank too many porters lately - this one kinda misses the mark. Decent coffee flavor, but has a nasty sour aftertaste. I will have to try this again sometime.

martjoobolut (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice hoppy porter with chocolate and coffee notes.

StueyD (1467) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
A very dark reddish brown coloured beer with a thick latte coloured head. A light roasted malt aroma, coffee, chocolate and nutty, plus a hint of ripe red fruits. Medium dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A bitter sweet roasted malt taste, burnt sugar, strong espresso coffee, dark chocolate, and nutty, then the sweeter ripened red fruit flavour comes through towards the end. The finish is bitter sweet and lengthy. Bottle from Beers of Europe.
