Aroma is dark malts, earthy and mild chocolate. The flavor is dark malts, fruit/berries, dryish in the middle and a mix of slight sweetness, sour and acidity in the finish.

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Cheers to Greg Wilson for this: a 500ml bottle, broached on 30th May 2016 while on holiday in California. Very dark brown bodied with a tanned topping, looked impressive in the large Leffe chalice I poured it into. Dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice in both the aroma and taste, dry and far from sweet in nature. A decent try at a UK style Porter.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Pours a very clean, dark black color with a very compact, cream color head with great staying power. Aroma is nutty, with lots of brown malt, light roasted nose and a slight raisin hint. Flavor is well balanced between brown malt early in the sip and a pronounced raisiny finish. Light combo of coffee and chocolate but really just a touch. Body is very thin with pretty low amounts of carbonation. Overall a good brew but just a tad bit too thin for the palate.

craighill (100) - GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle pours a deep chestnut, ruby brown beer with a pillowy beige three-finger head. Aroma is dark chocolate, leather, dark red fruits, and quite present herbal hop notes. Taste first mixes liquorice with punchy hop bitterness, before a dry coca powder bomb goes off. Dry finish calls for more. Good.
