COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered. Black Ale Ingredients: Pale malt; Roasted barley; Oats; Washington Galena, Worcester Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops. A superb, rich, full-bodied beer derived from a 1970s homebrewing recipe. Wickedly smooth chocolate dominates the flavour, which is nicely balanced by the bitterness of the hops.

Alexander Suraev (35) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2021 Liquide marron noir avec mousse très courte. Nez torréfié et chocolat. En bouche, c'est très marqué sur malt torréfié, le chocolat et le café avec une belle texture crémeuse !

UPDATED: APR 24, 2021 Nice stout, but a little too 'watery'/too bitter for my taste (I prefer a milk stout).

gripweed57 (5550) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2021
UPDATED: APR 21, 2021 330 ml can. My how the times have changed. Their putting this in a can. Nearly opaque black brown color. Dense foamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma hints at charred wood and campfire smoke. Flavor follows nose. Perhaps some smoky peat and tangy funk as well. Worcestershire sauce and dark chocolate. An iconic and tasty Porter.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2021 330ml bottle. Pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of dark roasted malts, chocolate, smoke and bitter espresso. Heavy on the bitterness. Excellent, though not easy drinking!
