Toasty malt aroma. Taste is of malt and a hint of chocolate. There’s a fruit edge to it as well. Not a lot of body but it’s quite good.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Gravity cask at the London Drinker BF 2014. Pours clear, rich brown with a frothy, beige head. The aroma holds lightly burnt malts and leathery dark fruits. Light sweet flavor with earthy bitterness, burn wood, toasted grass, more leathery fruits and dark bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; alright condition. Decent balance to finish with more well toated and almost burnt malts, dry and leathery fruits, berries, some chalky cocoa and moderate earthy bitterness. OK overall.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Dark brown, light caramel and a dash if roast. Light body w a fair bit of acidity and plummy, blackcurrant fruitiness. Not the first porter called Sherpa I’ve had.

Bottle from Cranachan & Crowdie, Edinburgh. This brown-black beer pours with a huge white foamy head. It has rich dark chocolate followed by sour red fruit flavours, coffee notes and a fruity and bitter finish.

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow. Near black with a big, rocky off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and a slight lactose tang. Flavour had more plain chocolate, a hint of fruity sweetness and a touch of ash in the finish. Very good.

WeissGary (279) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle at Valhalla’s Goat (previously Quel Vin), Glasgow, Scotland. Quite a nice little porter; very clean choco aroma, lovely mily tast which is quite soft and light to the tongue with a little spice to it, very sweet finish, tapers off with a hint of dry cocoa on the back of the tongue. Another lovely beer from this fantastic brewery!

Cask at Cloisters. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavour is mostly chocolate that leads into a bitter coffee finish. A straightforward and very drinkable porter.
