Brussels. Black, medium tan head. Espresso, hints of condensed milk. More carbonation than one would expect. Taste interestingly combines the sweet mill coffee element with good bitterness.
330ml. Pours opaque brown/black, with thin tan head. Little on the nose. Taste milk and chocolate/coffee. Overall: a pleasant porter based on a historic London recipe. Modern ’black ipa’s’ are not too dissimilar. jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Black body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and nuts. Flavour of coffee, blueberries and dark chocolate. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Really good - dark and roasted. Christian (13823) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2017

Bottle at home. Aroma is roasted malt, lots of dark chocolate, powdery cocoa, roasty coffee. Flavour is above moderate sweet and medium roasty bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is a bit much and got annoying especially immediately after pouring the beer. A bit of a shame, because the aroma and flavour are both excellent. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - NOV 21, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, bread, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a large brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could have been stronger. Amazing appearance with a huge head at the beginning, but a medium head that keeps coming back at the end. Great flavour from beginning to end, especially for the aroma.
Tap, aged for 6 months, pours dark brown with a tan head. Lovely mix of chocolate, coffee and berries. Very good. gyllenbock (9878) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2016
Sample at SBWF 2016. Black with a tan head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, some coffee and roasted malt. Smooth and an easy one to drink.
