Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - FEB 9, 2013
Pours black with a thick, shortly lived tan head. Aroma is unique, nutty, soy sauce, poly-glue, spice and hint of chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, vinegar, deep roasted malts, soy sauce. Palate is slightly oily and moderate to full bodied. Overall enjoyable but perhaps needs a tweak on the aroma.

likeatrainwreck (93) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Black with thick tan head, aroma: chocolate, treacle, roasted malts... flavours similar, really roasty... quite a defined hop profile, which makes for a very drinkable, quite light porter. Really delicious.

TEJA (1535) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Thick light brown head that lasts. Red-black color that is clear. Much dark roasted malts in the aroma, perhaps a bit too much for a porter. Very dark roasted malt taste that isn’t really balanced with any other tastes and it get one dimensional. Medium bitterness and a tiny sweetness.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. According to the staff it is this version. Pours dark brown with brown head. Nose is roasted malts, nicely balanced aroma. Taste is still slightly roasted, dark malts, quite simply but good.
