Aroma is OK with hints of leather, chocolate, toffee and cocoa. Appearance is a black mahogany with about a finger head that dissipated with a quickness.
Tastes like chewing tobacco; was bummed I wasted money on such a sub-par offering.
Aroma is dark malts, cocoa/chocolate and fruit. The flavor is dark fruit, dark malts, slight tobacco and a tart/acidic/dryish finish. Luvystypotables (1922) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2016
A smokey malt and coffee aroma, pours a dark brown color without much of a head. A full bodied oily mouth feel with a taste of smoked malt and coffee. A slightly bitter coffee finish. ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2016
In the glass it dark cocoa color with a medium head. Aroma of smoke, and some malts and a touch of cocoa. The taste is smooth with roasted malts, chocolate and some caramel. Not as thick as I thought. Good finish. bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2015
An Imperial London Porter. So, okay, I guess that is a thing. Either way, good beer. bpar73 (1117) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Dark roasted malt, burnt coffee and dark fruit in the aroma and taste. Excellent porter.

Excellent porter. Chocolate scented, thick and creamy, sweet and smoky finish. Dear Arcadia Management -- Please expand distribution network to Wisconsin. Enjoyed from a bottle. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.75 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a lot of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells mainly of tangy roastiness with smoky components. I’m not sure if this is a smoked beer or not, but it certainly seems that way. Aside from that, there’s plenty of chocolate with some caramel and molasses. I keep getting a whiff of pig, so I have to assume this is smoked. Smells good.
3.75 T: Taste is like the nose. Tangy roastiness, campfire and porcine smoke, chocolate. Underneath is caramel, molasses, and maybe a touch of dark fruits.
3.75 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasant creaminess makes this go down quite smoothly.
3.75 D: Solid beer all around. No complaints.

On tap at Molly Malloy’s in Philly on 6/19. Aroma of coffee and roast malt. Flavors of dry cocoa, coffee, toaster malt, smoke, licorice with a trace of booze. Delicious. Tayeth (644) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Extrem schokoladiger Geruch. Geschmack dann süß, ein bisschen sprittig, mit viel Schokolade und etwas Asche im Nachgeschmack. gueuze (943) - - JUN 10, 2015
Schwarze Farbe. Geruch eher unauffällig, nur leicht röstig. Im Geschmack dann sehr schokoladig, nur leicht rauchig. Sehr ausgewogen.
Sprittig im Nachgeschmack.
