Pint @ Hootnanny, Inverness. A valiant attempt. Dark marron color, not quite black. Translucent. Good collar, lacing, beautiful beer, actually. Very light aroma, sweetbreads. Medium body, bigger palate than Guinness. Not their best, but pretty good. JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Cask in the Holborn Whippet. Dark almost black colour with thin white head. Quite smooth and creamy for a porter, almost more of a thin stout I’d say. Lots of roasty coffee and malt flavours, not especially bitter. Nice. hlc (10) - - JUL 3, 2012
on draft at psbh, a very drinkable dark beer, although i found the aroma lacking it delivered a great malt based porter with hops just not quiet coming through JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at Red quireel, Edinburgh. Very dark brown one with a frothy, but quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet roasted malt, light smokey notes plus a bit of tar. Taste is sweet roast with licorice-notes and a malty bitter finish. Medium-bodied, liggt oily texture, low in carbonation. Impressively flavorful for the abv.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 On tap in Dundee, Scotland... Lovely beer! Pours a deep dark red colour with a thick creamy brown head. Tastes brilliant, goes down well! Choco/liquorish taste, thick black body, soft and spicy taste with a roasted aftertaste... very enjoyable!

Keg at the Draft House Tower Bridge. Poured black-brown and very creamy with a big nitro-type head that took quite a while to settle. Some choc on the nose, initially smooth on the palate but then with a little red fruit sweetness and some dry roasty mocha coming through. Slightly sweet and tart on the finish.

This beer was quite a suprising little number.
The other Black Isle beers we have in are lovely little cheeky session beers that are rewarding with little challenge to any drinker. The Organic Porter on the other hand, hides a little secret behind it’s sleek black look.
Coming in at a respectable 4.6%, I was suprised at the big body flavour of this beer! It’s smooth and subtle on the mouth, but has a big big flavour that just creeps in unexpectedly and makes you take a little longer to savour the crispness of this pleasant little number.
Nice carbonation, lovely dark shine, and a robust flavour make this a great beer to pop into your choices for the night!
Another win for the Black Isle team.
And just found out they have done a coffee porter before, so gonna keep an eye out for that one! :) iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Keg, Hootnanny Inverness. Dark, thick foamy head. Coffee, caramel, roast. Very easy to drink for a porter. deusax (459) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2012
A nice porter, really creamy, lot’s of taste. Can’t remember more, it was a while ago MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Keg. Pours dark brown with a good sized beige head. Bitter coffee aroma. Roast, coffee and chocolate flavour that is nicely balanced. I’m happy this has started the replace guinness in some ediburgh pubs.
