evergreen0199 (2463) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle from St Albans beer shop, St Albans, Herts. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roasty, malty, coffee aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, coffee, some chocolate, slight bitterness. This porter is all about the coffee, if it wasn’t so thin it would be world class, still a very good porter from Tempest.

Bottle at home. Dark fruit and rich chocolate nose. Roast malt, plums and latte. Of course I love trumpets and book marks. Delicious :)

330ml bottle, pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma is mild, fruity coffee, chocolate malt, orange marmalade hop. Medium bodied, creamy texture some sweetness and light bitterness and good balance. Better and more complex with some time out of the fridge.

chinchill (3124) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a 50 cl bottle in Edinburgh. 7.4% Imperial porter with cocoa and coffee. A lot of coffee in the nose and faint dark chocolate. Creamy smooth with well hidden alcohol. Good balance in tasting despite the dominance of coffee in the nose.

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
New branded 33 bottle at home - 7.4%. Lovely deep brown/black colour with an off white tanny head. Aroma is clean and grassy, with light coffee and milky and bitter choc. Medium body, light carbonation. Liquorice, treacle, grass, dark choc... but it thin and lifeless with no punch. OK.

nihtila (1832) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh, 7.2%. Pours almost black, beautiful brown velvety head. Nose is roasted coffee beans, espresso, and thats pretty much it, light sweetness in the background. Nice (if you like coffee). Taste is a bit thinner than aroma promises but strong espresso present, roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Light sweetness notto make it too dry - still not sweet. Very good.
