Bottle. Deep red. Creamy head. Roasty, dark flavours. Oaky, sourish, very much wood. My first oaked porter and I liked it lots. AndrewC (376) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2011
Badged as just "Curious Porter" from Waitrose. Black with the aroma of roasted malt. Some sweet roasted malt notes, hint of coco powder, quite smooth, hint of buzz on the tongue. It’s okay. reebtogi (6270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
330ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head that leaves only a small trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little on the thin side for the style, but otherwise, this is quite a nice brew, tasty and easy to drink. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle shared with Jack at The Kernel - London. Pours clear brown with a creamy tan cap. Sugary brown bread nose. Medium sweet flavor, faint ashy roast, brown bread, dry earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Dry finish, slightly ashy, with dry toast, light earthy bitterness, dried and toasted sugars. OK.

330 ml bottle. Lovely, clear, dark amber body with a nice beige head. Quite light, but nice aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and some chocolate. Flavor is mild, dark roasted malt, dark fruit, light coffee and chocolate, liquorice and moderate bitterness. Medium body and moderate aftertaste of roasted malt and liquorice. Pleasant and easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary.

Bottle. Very dark brown with a big head that stayed almost until the end. Slightly astringent aroma, but not unpleasant. Taste of chocolate and roasted malt with only a hint of the oak. Very rich taste with a small bit of cherry coming through as it warmed. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2006
