beerman89 (38) - Greater London, - JAN 6, 2013
Interesting and complex. Aroma is hoppy with some coffee, licorice and tropical fruits. There is some strawberry sauce in there somewhere. The taste is immediately bitter espresso and chocolate, with the hops and tropical fruits trying to push through but the coffee dominates. There is a bitter finish with a slightly sweet, candy like aftertaste. Medium body, low carbonation. Unique, and very nice!

Lovely coffeeish sipper. Quite deep for such low ABV. Nice roast level, coffee, dark choco, noticeable citrussy, floral hops. Well balanced, enjoyable brew, tho I would like more muscled version

Chinook / Centennial / Mosaic. Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, lots of milk chocolate, fruity hops, tropical fruit and citrus notes, coffee. Flavour is light sweet and moderate to medium roasty hoppy bitter. Body is medium and a bit creamy. Almost a Black IPA, lovely roast and milk chocolate. Delicious.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2016 Aspecto de porter densa y oscura con espuma beige. Aroma de black IPA, muchas notas de pino, resina y fruta además chocolate, caramelo y grano tostado. En boca es bastante amarga, sigue dominando la sensación de una black IPA, bien de pino y café. Textura sedosa muy lograda.

beeebon (372) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Pours very dark with tan head, aroma of pine, coffee, toast, leafy and slight leather. Medium sweet and bitter, complex and lingering taste. Light carbonation providing just enough kick to bring everything through. Thin though slightly oily texture. A fantastic Porter!

Bottle shared at Aaron’s. Not a fresh bottle, but still very tasty and still with a presence of hops. Chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Good.
