A lesson in the underestimation of beer dating. Gift from a friend in 2006. Bottle dated best by 02/20/07. Stored cold since. Drinks much the same as many of the past descriptions. Head fizzed audibly, almost seltzer-like, died to thin rim lacing in 20 seconds, yet zippy, fine bubble in each lovely sip. Coffee, cocoa, pipe tobacco on nose. Creamy and lively texture. "Sweet & dry" chocolate, root (sassafras et al), and black tea. A tribute to the integrity of this beer. Perfect on a raw October night in CT. Thanks Zep!
Green coffee bean bitterness on the aroma, from a bottle , this has a rather thin mouthfeel , some spice and bitterness on the finish. Decent, but I was expecting more . mesacollier (22) - - OCT 5, 2017
Very little chocolate aroma, nice dark rich Color, very little flavor and bitter, very dry finish which I don’t like, I will not buy again

This is a pretty common and excellent porter. Very creamy and robost flavors make this a staple porter for regular consumption. hohops (1071) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Appearance- very dark brown, slight ruby tinge, a small beige head which fades quickly. Aroma- coffee, dark fruits, milk chocolate, toffee. Taste- chocolate, bitter coffee, dark fruit traces, caramel malt, chocolate fudge. Full and quite thick mouthfeel, chewy finish. Very good. Hopskotch (20) - Stanford, California, USA - SEP 28, 2017
I absolutely love this beer. Everything about it is incredible, and yet it also doesn't try to do too much. My mouth is watering as I type this. Well done

Draft at Brewdog Shoreditch. Chocolate and roasted notes that follows through into taste. Black appearance. Tastes fairly thin and overall fairly underwhelming.

Strong coffee and chocolate notes. The sweetness balances nicely with the light bitterness. A bit thin compared to other porters. Flavor improves and it mellows as it warms. Maybe my favorite Porter after Edmund Fitzgerald and Fullers

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop.
Good sized creamy head, decent lacing. Dark black body. Creamy chocolate nose, hints of coffee. Roast coffee flavour, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, a little spice, very light bitterness on the finish. Light carbonation, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Very good porter. oobawa (1660) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Classic American porter, bittersweet with a hefty chocolate core surrounded by mild cherry-raisin notes and a roasty, modest bitterness on the finish. Creamy texture and lovely mocha nose make it way too easy to kill the pint. Good beer. Sebilinz (2555) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle. Black body with tan head. Aroma is malts caramel chocolate hints of coffee. Taste is is sweet dark caramel coffee some tobacco and hints of smoke. Aftertaste is sweet dark roasted malts. Nice one.
