whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2015
Deep black with a light brown head. An aroma of raisins and leather with some dark chocolate thrown in for good measure. Roasted malts and coffee, with a hoppy/earthy bitterness at the back end. This is actually quite bitter for a porter, it’s excellent though. Well carbonated and very smooth on the palate, very silky.

colui72 (661) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2015
When a Porter meets a a Black IPA. The porter dominates without doubts. The appearance is a porter-like black with beige head. A big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, as well as its taste, which adds caramel and hops. Medium bitter finish, which I guess is the intent of being described as a black IPA. Good beer anyway.

RichardGretton (4638) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Darkly coloured black beer with a very strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is deeply roasted, and the flavour is very deeply roasted with bags of bitterness and a slight espresso coffee feel. Overall a nice very strongly flavoured porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
