Wezzielad (22) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Pure silk in a glass. It has a fruity taste and chocolate in there. Quite strong so don’t have too many ( for a disclaimer ;)). Really this is one of two best porters that I have ever had and is certainly worth a try. This is up there for one of the best ales out there.

simontomlinson (335) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Cask: Black head stayed well on still dark body. Big roasted aroma of chocolate & coffee. Medium body. Sharp. Dry tastes of roasted, nutty & dark bitter fruits.

Cask. Jet black with Ruby light shining through. Thick tan head. Slight chocolate on the nose. Light chocolate on the taste. Maltiness. A little honeycomb. Very tasty.

TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Cask@Beer Hunters. Opaque brown color, small steady beige head. Toasted caramelly aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted, chocolaty with hints of tobacco. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent cask porter.

theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Cask. Aroma richly malty. Pours dark brown with thin lace. Taste is roasted, toasted caramelized malts that play beautiful off pale malt and hops for the bittersweet effect that has earned this so many accolades.

Tide (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Cask at Black Door. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, hops, coffee, chocolate, nuts, dark fruits and a bit of wood. Bitter finish with roasted malts, hops, coffee, nuts, chocolate and a bit of dark fruits. Excellent porter.

MarcinG (819) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2016 Cask w The Old Harker Chester.Czarny kolor z delikatnym rubinowym refleksem. Piana mala bezowa o kremowej konsystencji. Subtelny aromat kawy i czekolady. W smaku rumowo-rodzynkowy z kawowa i czekoladowa nuta. Delikatny i niezbyt gorzki.

Mishnok (283) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
From cask. Pours black with latte coloured thin head. Aroma of chocolate and raisins. Smooth, silly taste. Coffee and roasted malts, coffee, not too bitter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JFF (205) - - AUG 29, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2016 En fût "real ale" au Paramount à Manchester. Très rond en bouche. Mousse très onctueuse qui nappe le verre. Robe noire opaque. Goût de torréfaction amère. Bonne bière dans le style, mais rien d?exceptionnel.

Benzai (15458) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
Sampled @ GBBF Day 2. Opaque black color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, soft roast, liquorice, a slight sweet touch, slightly caramel and brown sugar as well with -eventually- a light malt bitter finish. Not bad, solid porter.
