johndoughty (4982) - 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 (833) - 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.

biir (785) - Berlin, - OCT 9, 2015
Tap @Home, Berlin. According to the barkeeper this is the only place in Germany, where you can drink this. And this beer is a must! Somewhere in between a porter and a BIPA, full of hoppy flavors, great color, great head, rather bitter for a Porter. Excellent.

Fin (9588) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle at Klooster, Netherlands, Thursday 8th October 2015. Pours black with a large tan head. Straddling the divide between a hoppy porter and a BIPA, this beer works very well as it’s doesn’t lean too much to either of these stykes. This is an easy drinking beer with some light malty touches and a hoppiness (though not excessive) throughout. Good stuff. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4
