Bottle: Filtered. Black Ale Ingredients: Pale malt; Roasted barley; Oats; Washington Galena, Worcester Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops.

DJMonarch (13758) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2022 On Tap at Baron's Lounge, Northwich 18/09/2018 Fruit and some roast aromas. Small beige head. Black and a little rich on the palate with berry fruit flavours. Smooth and a little dry with a coffee roast finish.

bdleedahl (5485) - , NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2022
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2022 Classic english porter. Light and sharp and lager-like crispness. Some bitterness that gives it this. Bierkonig ams

biilz (1811) - SPAIN - MAY 15, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2022 Аромат в меру жженый, немного кофейный, есть слегка намеки на шоколад. Цвет черный, пенки почти нету. Вкус слегка маслянистый, есть жженые следы от кофе и черного шоколада, намеки на изюм возможно. Намеки на дымность, немного бобов и весьма сильная горечь на глотке от кофе и шоколада. Норм в целом.

Myonlyvice (819) - DENMARK - MAY 3, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2022 Pitch black with a medium head. Aroma: tobaco, burnt toast, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste: Bittersweet with a mild bitter aftertaste

IPARater72 (336) - - JAN 28, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2022 Older notes from a Beer52 package: enjoyed it - really dark bour with a decent head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, a hint of toffee and toasted malt. Similar for the taste. Not very carbonated which made it easy to drink.

edward78 (1088) - West Wickham, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2021 Can online from Ocado. Pours jet black with a large thick creamy beige head. Faint aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and liquorice. Taste has big notes of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffee and some sweet brown sugar. This is a lot sweeter than i was expecting but still has a nice balance between the sweet and roasty notes. Thin to medium body, very low carbonation and smooth oily mouthfeel. it’s pretty good but i was still expecting something a bit extra given the hype around this beer.

Alexander Suraev (38) - Moscow, RUSSIA - SEP 13, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2021 A must try for anyone interested in the beer that goes into Highland Park barrels to become more complex and pricey. But it's quite good by itself, pre-aging. A very nice porter, affordable and pleasant.

0.33 bottle @ home
Pitch black with a small, brownish head. Aroma of wood, toast, smoke, a tiny bit of cocoa. Taste is toasted malts, burnt caramel, bread, dark chocolate, a tiny hint of molasses. Full, creamy, flat. Finish is medium long and introduces significant bitterness, which is resemblant of chocolate rather than hops with a smidgen of peat. Overall, a decent bottle of porter.

as216 (532) - SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2021
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2021 Jet black pour. Strong roasted coffee aroma alongside liquorice. Medium bodied. Strong roasted malt and coffee flavour with hints of liquorice. Bitter finish.
