Dashimus (213) - 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.

jjsint (498) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Keg at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and coal. Sweet with a tempering bitterness, leading to an extra bite in the finish. Palette is a bit thin. Tasty but a bit anonymous, would have liked more personality.

dutchbeerpages (1473) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2014
Veggies in the back, amazingly low %. Usual hoppiness but some almost creme brullee like sweetness because of the roasted malts. A perfect 5.8 beer, so much you are tempted to sip it like an IRS. Tap at the Beer Temple

OOKPIKABLE (14) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Pours black with a thick brown long-lasting head. Aroma of hops, followed by chocolate. Taste is of chocolate, toasted malts, hops and a bit of licorice. The 6.3% abv is very well concealed. Dangerously easy to drink. All in all, a very nice porter.

Wat een geweldige porter! Mondgevoel is intens en de smaak superieur. Een porter zoals je hem verwacht.’

ej (616) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - APR 10, 2014
Pours close to black with a thick and dark tanned head. Nice aroma of roasted malts and resin. Pine and a faint fruityness. Slick on the palate, taste is heavy roast and moderate bitter. Finishes quite dry and bitter.

Nice balance between bitterness and the roasted malt, kind of a milder black IPA. Really enjoyed this.

Garrold (735) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. 6.5%. Chinook and Bramling Cross hops. Nightmare dark. Thick, tan, lasting head. Minty. Fresh blackcurrant. High cocoa content chocolate. Tinned prunes. Hint of liquorice. Taste is chunky, dark chocolate. Loads of bitterness, chocolatey as well as grapefruit. Thick, fruity palate. Tasty, and then some...
