2/18/2009 3:35:35 PM Black body with malty nose. Fruity nose. Nice taste of malt, caramel, hops, dark fruits. Lots of chocolate. Spicy finish. Dry body. Wonderful, as always. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2015
From 2011. 33cL bottle. GUSHER!! Big tan glass of foamy head. There is a slim amount of blackish liquid beneath, after the gusher finally settled down. Wow! Smells initially of chocolate, then celery seed. Taste is of a typical porter, with some alka-seltzer and chocolate. Carbonic bite, bitter. A little sweet, but too thin. Not a good impression for the ?brewer? on this one. I?ll be avoiding other stuff by him. bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2015
APPEARANCE - black, with nearly white head that sticks around.
NOSE - tiny bit of grassy hop. Slightly boosy, but not too much.
FLAVOR - pretty good Porter, slightly roasty. Thin taste, not too thick or viscous.

Bottle 401/450. Pours lighter brown with a big foamy, khaki head. Nice aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Different flavor than expected with a hint of fruitiness but it finishes with a little bitterness. Unique but nice.

Sweet jeebus. I want to get in my Tardis and go back and get some more of this smokey, popped like a gun going off. Delicious

Cork exploded out of bottle. Immediate foam-filling pour into an English pint. Full glass of tan head. Soy and dark chocolate aromas. Seriously - I’ve been here five minutes and looking at 2 full pints of foam with maybe an 2 inches of liquid. Dry and Sharp with dark chocolate covered caramel upfront turning to soy before the lasting dry espresso finish.
