This is a stunning beer. Very dark with a rapidly disappearing tan head. Very creamy with lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Also a little bit spicy which compliments the beer very well. Quite thick and viscous. Fantastic porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Probably my favourite William Bros beer so far (still got a few more to finish before I make my mind up). A pitch black body with a good-sized tan head that creates a good lacing. The aromas are quite pronounced and of milk chocolate and coffee along with a decent roasted malt tone. The flavours are of dark chocolate, once again accompanied by coffee and warming ginger. A lasting bitter, coffee and liquorice flavour in the finish, that further subdues to form a roasted malt final aftertaste. Pretty bloody good.

nice beer, beautiful dark colour. the initial taste is good and full, but the aftertaste feels a bit watered down and gives an anti-climax.

Fairly light aroma, but looks and flows incredibly well balanced on first glance.
Tastes smooth and creamy, with a medium bitterness and sweetness. Holds its chocolatey flavour just long enough to leave you wanting more. A really lovely balanced porter, perfect with pudding. Not sure about the ’spicy’ claim on the bottle, but it could easily become a high calibre staple porter.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0.5. Porter - comprising a mixture of malted barley, oats and burnt chocolate malt, hops and lots of ginger. Porter does not look like Russian (Baltic, Athanasius) - it is dry, no sweet aftertaste, aroma of coffee and hops. Foam - a thick, resistant, chocolate.

500ml bottle, pours black with a small tan head, chocolate and roast malt aroma, hints of plum with a bit of spice, finish is balanced and moderate bitter, carbonation average, nothing too complex, but certainly not disappointed. Very good porter.

500ml bottle at home. Pours near black, 1cm off-white head that lasts pretty well. Coffee, chocolate and metallic aromas, subtle ginger if you search for it. A herbal note coming out as it slips down. Taste has a roasted bitterness and chocolate-to-toffee sweetness. Liquorice coming through on the aftertaste. Medium body, little thin, average carbonation. Decent bitter finish. Nice.

Kofiie, passievrucht, mango en rum-rozijn, perfect in balans. Smaak is aangenaam met dezelfde aromas, in balans, nasmaak zachtzoet. Ik lust een tweede.

Shared a 500ml bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a really dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma is tasted, coffee, nuts and dough. Medium to low carbonation and medium oily body. Flavour starts with medium bitter and ends quite dry. Overall a nice beer.
