UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Fruity aroma, very smooth with mild coffee and caramel flavours. Definate roasted hints. A great beer that is worth the effort.

Good plummy aroma,, with a liquorice hint. Quite metallic taste, like a good stout. Low carbonation .

AngloJaxon88 (6) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016 does not count
Pours dark brown/black with a thin brown head. Smells of lightly roasted malts, chocolate, earthy. Tastes of dried fruit, mild roasted malt flavours. Not to sweet. nicely balanced between sweet and dry. It’s a decent enough beer, but not something I would personally strive to try again.

Mooie zwarte kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig hop orange. Smaakt bitter, citrus drop. Bitter.

blackradioboy (170) - SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle. Like the name. Earthy smell. It's an inoffensive porter, with some body and a very long, very dry finish. Ok, but not special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moolesen (441) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Black with. Beown head. Nice aroma of hops in together with some hints of liquorice and subtle malt. Lot of taste, considering that it only is a 6% alc/vol. beer. Hints of coffee, toffee followed by a subtle bitter finish. Good beer.

Beachmaster (415) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours black with a minimal tan head. Nose is caramel and hops. Taste follows. Starts with toasty malt, finishes with some nice hop bitterness. Not bad, but not exceptional.

olio (8877) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2016
33 cl bottle. BBE 28.01.2017.
Pours dark brown color with a deep red tint and a large off-white head. Dry dark chocolate on the nose, very hoppy, some faint coffee notes, roasted malts and very subtle vanilla. Flavor is a bit of a letdown, watery malty body with some chocolaty tones, mild bitterness, some hops and again some vanilla on the short finish. Soft carbonation, dry palate with a short aftertaste. Very nice aroma but too weak a body and the flavors are a bit muted. Somewhat disappointing.

evergreen0199 (2844) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle from Marks and Sparx in Rickmansworth, Herts. A very dark brown/black coloured pour with a healthy beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate, berry fruit aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, some chocolate and berry fruit. Very nice porter and available up the road at my local M&S, all good.

ipabr (116) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Good smell with a slight sharp zest. Taste is great, full flavoured dark ale that is oddly refreshing and light, certainly wouldn’t think it was 6% abv. Very good buy again.
