Exceptional beer both draught and bottled. Chocolate aromas with a hint of liquorice wow!!!. SilverfoX (879) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
big chocolate and vanilla aromas, looks a bit like cola, smooth rich chocolate flavour with hints of vanilla not cloying and very well balanced. superb beer. 77ships (11304) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2017
½ Pint Cask split by two with SinH4 @ Waterloo Tap. Happy B-Day! Black, little tanned head. Nose is cacao, chocolate, coffee, low herbal. Lovely round stupidly drinkable cacao & chocolate taste, sugar, mildly sweet, insanely drinkable. Really tasty & crazily drinkable. This is really lovely. thepegjett (1281) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2011

500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 7th Aug 2013, poured at home some 8 days earlier into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard.
Lovely black colour with a full and lasting beige head.
Chocolate esters and tastes rule the brew completely, rich and creamy feel to the whole brew: a chocolate orange flavour arrives as the beer warms in the glass, which sets it apart from other Porters I’ve tried.
Really enjoyed this beer, my fourth and final bottle during a ’random tasting evening’ I undertook with myself.
