Keg @ Brewdog Birmingham. 2/3rd pint. Brewed with Guatemalan coffee beans and infused with cacao nibs and El Limon Bourbon. Jet black body with a creamy tan head that disappeared quite quickly. Good aromas of vanilla and dark chocolate, the flavour is full of rich roasted malts, with a caramel sweetness, a great balance of sweetness and smokey notes, and then a boozy bourbon kick along with bitter cocoa lingering in the finish. This is a pure, unadulterated classic, and as others have said it gets better as it goes down. A proper belter! Nische (2802) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2018

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2018 0,33 cl, Promo Saveur Bière. Robe marron quasi noire, faible mousse beige. Nez : café, cacao, pointe de vanille. Attaque douce sur le chocolat, puis rapidement le café prend le dessus. Finale sèche, le même café persiste un peu. BenL8 (321) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2018
Pours black with a nice sheet of dark head, dissipates quickly though. Aroma is rich, full of dark malts, and really lots of coffee. Medium body. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Flavour is amazing. Beautifully balanced, with just the right amount of sweetness and malt. Nice amount of caramel and the Guatemalan coffee is married perfectly into this ensemble. Some cocoa, but not nearly as dominant as the coffee. Some vanilla. A really enjoyable bitterness balances the sweetness. Finishes rather long, a tad warming, with more rich coffee. What an amazing Porter! Without a question among the best I've had. Perfectly balanced and delicious. GreenCat (241) - SLOVENIA - JAN 1, 2018
0,33 l bottle. Pours almost pitch black with big beige lasting head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa along with some toasted malt, vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is quite full, texture sticky and carbonation average. Finish is long, more coffee and lingering bitter cocoa. Head was extra bitter, but it got more rounded as it dissipated and even better as beer warms.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Zwart bier met fijne parelende crèmekleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Koffie, vanille, chocolade, toffee, mokka. Fluweelzacht van smaak, toch een redelijke body. Creamy mondgevoel met subtiele (koffie)bitter in de afdronk. Prachtige porter. L_Lovecraft (823) - - DEC 2, 2017
Coffee, caco and vanilla as in label, dark with a good tan head, medium body, average carbonation, coffee is very intense, a cup of fresh coffee and vanilla, maybe for my taste a bit of lack of body...still very good. Michael27 (2439) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2017
Fresh from the tap at Muted Horn. Black as the nighr. Intensive aromes of coffee and black chocolate are dominating. colui72 (1201) - HONG KONG - NOV 20, 2017
Pours black, with a medium beige head and not much of lacing. Awesome aroma of vanilla, coffee and bourbon. Tastes bitter and boozy, roasted barley and oat, strong coffee, cocoa, bourbon and vanilla. Smooth and creamy, medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. A great, rich ale. Awesome. biir (1731) - Berlin, - NOV 18, 2017
