Pdubyah (505) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 15, 2015
It’s not what you’d call full bodied, but there is a vast array of aromas, and quite the thing of flavours in this, and it ends up being very drinkable. I got a milky chocolate aroma on opening, then I got smoky bitterness and some tartness, the taste was lightly bitter, some fruit thing not a big finish but I did drink it double quick. Nice really.

evergreen0199 (2331) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from St Albans beer shop, St Albans, Herts. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, chocolate, slightly bitter. It is decent enough but not worth sending half way around the world when we have fantastic Kernel porters to hand.

Poured a deep dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet fruit and roast malt. Light body, flavour is lightly sweet, moderately bitter and toasted.

Bule (1172) - California, USA - FEB 25, 2015
500ml bottle pours a black color with a lot of frothy head. Lots of roasted malt. The roastiness is a little harsh against the hops.

GlassBrass440 (273) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2015
Pours black with a moderate white head. Faint chocolate aroma. Mild chocolate flavor. This would probably be decent on cask. Doesn’t hold up as well in the bottle.

Mothery Kelly’s. Keg. Pretty much an opaque dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, mildly tangy and carrying a trace of lactose. Very mild roast. Light semi dry crisp finish. Clean and drinkable but pretty standard stuff. I can’t help but wonder why someone who makes the (appreciated) effort of importing beer all the way from New Zealand would include a standard porter on their manifest, especially when so many standard porters are readily available here and so many interesting New Zealand hoppy beers are brewed over there. Oh well!

Cruzer (96) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
Nice hoppy porter, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted malts, flavour of chocolate, roasted malts, aftertaste of nice hops. Pretty neat

SarkyNorthener (2911) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle from stirchley wines, birmingham. Black beer with small mocha head and patchy lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and some light licorice. Taste is roasted malts, a touch of licorice and some chocolate. Decent.
