Dark pour from bottle. Reddish tinged. Smells of malt. Cocoa malt taste. Pretty decent. The_Osprey (8732) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. Dark brown, small bubbly white head. Aroma is candy floss, sweet dried dough, some red berry. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is cola, some ashy bitterness. Nice aroma but a bit of a thin flavour. Came across like a mild. mR_fr0g (13226) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Cask gravity at gbbf 2015 day 3. Thanks to Colin. But brown coloured pour with a lasting halo of white head. Aroma is vanilla, fruit cake, booze, sherry, cakey malts. Flavour is raisin and dried fruits. Oily. Palate is semi sweet, oily. Lowish carbonation. Interesting enough. Maxbier (999) - Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Medium brown pour with 2 finger tan head. Nutty roasted malt aroma. Roasty nutty, malt, dark cocoa bitterness. Almost like a chocolate nut-brown, very nice.

Has a faint smoke aroma. Has a nice bit of a chocolate taste. Has a creamy nice body. Not bad. DCLawyer (2912) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Draft at Spacebar. Black with bare lite tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lite coffee, ash. Taste is similar, with hint of chocolate. Thin, bit watery. Good enough to drink a couple, but not to seek out. G_Ram9 (93) - - MAY 19, 2015
First impressions: rather light for a porter, not as complex as hoped for. However, as it warms a bit and I keep sipping, it's flavors grow, but not to where I'd expect from a 7 malt beer. I detect hints of coffee, a little chocolate, and very subtle smoke on the tongue but surprisingly not on the nose. Overall, a decent porter but less than I'd hoped for.

Pours a nice black color, but has no lacing or head retention. I expected it to smell more of chocolate and burnt coffee, but those are barely present. It is more bitter than most porters I have had. Reminds me more of a black ipa than a porter. Jabah (509) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2015
This is an OK porter....slightly above average but nothing really special here. There’s some roasty coffee and chocolate flavors, though the texture and balance could be a little better. Evolution just made it down here to FL. My first sample from them, so I’ll give one of their other styles a try.
