Bart (2937) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012
Draught @ Craft Beer Co. London. Black coloured beer with a small off white head and no carbonation. Smouth roasted coffee malty hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is strangly bitter hinted with some sweet malty fruity and caramel hinted touches. Very good porter.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Dark brown beer with a tall thin light tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma with cheesy and dusty tones. Also roasted malt and coffee in the flavor. Quite thin for a porter.

Cask @ wetherspoons. Deep dark black colour. No carbonation. Not a massive aroma but what you'd expect - deep maltiness. Flavourwise, it's good, though a bit watery in the mouth. Licorice, coffee, treacle and a nice bitter finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 15th Oct 09. Dark, dark brown. Chocolately malt aroma. Rich malt taste with a firm palate. Just right for a porter - hefty but not overbearing.

[Gravity cask at Milton Keynes beerfest] Smokey, dry, comforting, but lacks depth for something of this ABV

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2003
Bottled. Black with a large fluffy tan head. Plenty of sediment and juice bits at the bottom. Subtle old-school flavours, softly toasted malt flavours that transition slowly across to the palate for slow finish. Nice beer this. #First tried at the Evening Star in Brighton, in 2001, when drinking was simple. I knew I liked it then as well.

Alphadelic (2248) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2010
Thick, light but with a dryness from the flowery hops. Sweet malt lovely really very floral.

3.8
sm89walt (2069) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2009
Cask - Dartford WMC. Very dark brown, a fine, bubbly beige head rests on top. Good coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate on the nose. Dry, roasty, bitter coffee & chocolate flavours with a nutty tone, malty dark fruits, a bit of acidity & liquorice. Smooth on the tongue with a lasting dry roasted finish, a medium body and low carbonation.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Rating #1049. Cask conditioned at the Wenlock Arms, London. With Duff and Chris_o. Dark, full bodied and chocolately porter. Fairly fruity and sweet and tangy. Fruity, thick and slightly roasty. Best beer of the night.
