Dark ruby. Aroma soft malty with coffee. Taste an unusual porter. Liquorice coffee and chocolate. Smooth and great strength. Subtle on palate but pleasant and very moreish. imdownthepub (15322) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2003
Cask Conditioned. Beware the Beast for he creeps up on you. A big dark beer with roasted malt, chocolate, prunes. This does not drink its strength, the night was young and the warning signs were there, but we had to go and have a sesh. It drinks like a best bitter with more flavour, but boy when he kicks in. I don't like Exmoor Beast, I love it! as I've heard before in another context. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2005

Cask (gravity) at Burton Winter Ales Festival 2005. A porter with muscle. Dark brown, roasty whiff, sweet finish with crystalline fruits anf buttered nuts, deceptive palate for a stronger ale, probably beer of the festival for me. Svesse (8767) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2006
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 26 Nov) Black colour with ruby notes, small head. Malty, roasted nose with distinct notes of liquorice and soy sauce. Malty, roasted taste with liquorice, soy sauce, prunes and raisins. Slightly vinous, but in perfect balance. Lovely beer!
