caesar (6364) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle @ derat, large sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, coffee, some piney hops. Creamy texture. Roasty bitterness in taste, but also quite hoppy like a hoppy porter without going towards a black ipa. Good beer.

One-third pint, keg at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill. Filmy tan-coloured head, good lacing. Jet black body. Creamy malts and liquorice nose. Roasted dark malty flavours including moments of chocolate and liquorice. Dark fruit to a firm bitter finish. Fine bodied. Pleasant (London, 28.11.2015).

ZodiacM (653) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Fles @DeRat. Mooi zwart bier. Vrij hoppig in geur, smaak is hoppig, drop en koffie in de afdronk. Een smaakvolle Porter, wederom een heerlijk bier uit New Zealand.

thmsboyd (191) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 30, 2015
330mL bottle BBE: 28/01/17. Medium chill (approx 8 degrees). Pours a deep brownish black body with just a hint of crimson around the edges, and a small, persistent, tight tan head. Very hop forward nose, but the hops are stale, leaving a cheese and onion crisp aroma. This masks much of the malt complexity, but below this you can find some liquorice and coffee. A medium sweetness gives way to a light, dry, roasted bitterness. Medium-full bodied with a lightly abrasive texture, medium carbonation and a dry, slightly smokey finish. Unfortunately, this bottle has been poorly handled. However, it is clear that a robust and complex porter lies beneath.

tricksta_p (2991) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, grass, soft chocolate, some roast, fruity notes, some grapefruit, citrus, "sinas snippers", hops. Flavour is light sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Body is medium. Very easily drinkable and refreshing fruity malty hoppy chocolate Porter, soft but tasty.

Good chalky stoutness, very rosary and stout but without being too overpowering. Good.

johndoughty (4769) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle. My first from this brewery and yet another excellent beer from New Zealand.. Black with a medium head. Unusual earthy flavour that is refreshing and quite distinctive. Have they added some kind of flora to give this very unusual taste. Really worth trying.

weordie (684) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Pours black with a white head. Aroma is chocolatey, some coffee and sweet treacle. A very sweet, cola taste that gives way to a coffee finish. Nice.
