cluny6 (115) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, - MAR 25, 2009
Pours dark reddish black with small, creamy head. Roasty aroma with some coffee and bitter chocolate. Balanced hops. Taste is bitter with present hops, albeit to few. Thin body. B

Smells of licorice and caramel, with a hint of malts. Pours an extremely dark brown with a small tan head. Taste of treacle and a finish of coffee. Not bad.

Pours very dark brown. Aroma is mostly caramel and raisins. Light, but still somewhat oily, mineral body. Toward the sweet end.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Butelka 500ml. z Vinomondo Conwy. Moj porter ma na etykiecie 6%abv. Kolor czarny . Piany praktycznie brak. Karbonacja prawie zerowa- moze moje bylo jakies trefne.Strasznie wodnisty. W aromacie palone slody cukry i karmel lekka sliwkowa nuta. W smaku raczej plytki z czekoladowo-karmelowa nuta. Malo wyrazisty...

Bottle from Vinomondo, Conwy. Black-brown with a thick bubbly head. Has a washy roasted malt aroma, with a more stated taste, but still a little thin tasting in terms of its texture - however not too much, it’s still a decent porter.

Bottle from Vinomondo, 19 High Street, Conwy, Gwynedd LL32 8DE. Inky black brown in colour with a massive rocky head of tan foam. It has a bitter-sweet chocolate, liquorice and plum flavour with roasted coffee on the creamy finish. Excellent!

Bottled. Coppery black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head, that leaves nice lace. Aroma is caramel, some liquorice, mild ashy and chocolaty notes to it. Flavour is toffee, ashes, some chocolate, mild coffee, roasted malts as well as some slight herbal notes. Rather bold palate and very smooth and filling to drink.

500ml bottle. Lost a quarter of it in an eruption of foam, not please A little watery, and a lack of nose, but it grew on me Well balanced with chocolate and a memory of espresso A session porter, perhaps

stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle from MediaCityUK, Salford [261114]
Black, massive tan head, over carbonated, some lacing
Aroma of mellow roasted malts, soft sweet dark malts
Taste of mellow roast, quite rich dark malts, nice dark chocolate, no fruits, tasty
Palate - Medium carb and body, over fizzy, quite sweet. Finish of mellow roast, quite sweet plain dark chocolate afters
Overall - Good porter, spoiled by being over carbonated - once this had settled down (with a bit of stirring), it had quite a smooth mouthfeel.

Rune (13353) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at NWAF in Manchester last year. Beige-brownish head to a clear mahogany coloured body. Lacing rings down the glassware. Dark, mid-sweet, caramel aroma. Malty flavours, caramel, chocolate and lactose hints. Malty ending with leafy hops. Medium bodied. Has got its moments of decent beer drinking (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).
