Tasted at home with my flatmate. Thank you Andrew! It pours dark brown with a medium, frothy, creamy, beige head. Aroma is vanilla, smoked malts, roasted malts, coffee, toffee, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is soft, texture is creamy. Finish is sweet with roasted malty notes. Overall average, not bad but nothing to remember. nathanvc (696) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2017
Can at Le Trappiste, Bruges. Pours hazy black with a small, foamy, beige head that leaves little lacing. The aroma contains roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, oats, licorice and smoke or smoked meat. It tastes light sweet and light to medium bitter with a medium long roasted finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, slick but not thin. A very enjoyable, new experience. vbaudry (153) - - MAY 9, 2017
Nose of roasted malt and smoke, hints of coffee.
In mouth it’s incredibly subtle and balanced, light to medium body. Just the right amount of smokiness, and also very round and fresh. Exactly at the crossroads of sweet and bitter.
Very easy to drink and very subtle but not watery at all. Great porter. AWS9 (742) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Can. Decent, very dark brown pour. Lots of dark coffee-malt notes that really kick in nicely in the finish. Toast, wood, walnut. Mouth feel is a bit sugary, but otherwise goes down nicely. Very solid! Grumbo (3973) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Can at One 29 (aka the Cork), Felixstowe. Pours very dark brown with a maroon tint and a short lasting beige head. Aroma of light smoked meats, roasted malt, chocolate, and a touch of coffee. Moderate sweetness and roasted bitterness. Medium body, slick to oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is dry, chocolaty, and subtly smoked. Nice.

Can from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Beer served in 16°C, Duvel Glass. Pours black with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is very mild smokiness, caramel, roasted malts. On the oily texture of the beer flavor is seriously delicate, smoky a little, coffee, sour and toffee. Not bad. ALIBALI (2482) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 14, 2017
Interssantes Porter mit Phenolonäschen und beerigen Ganzen. Typisch schlanker Korpus mit der roten Traube im Gepäck. Nice Softie mit kurzem Atem, aber macht nichts, überall ist mal Kaminhebelparty 😉. 0,33l Can im LABYRINTH Cottbus. 5,90€. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2017
