330ml bottle. Pours almost black with a thick tan head, good retention. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, moderately bitter hops, hint of fruit. Medium body and carbonation, slick mouthfeel, dryish finish. Solid porter though nothing outstanding.

CraftBeerNick (2274) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle at home, 28th January 17. Black, little carbonation. Aroma is cocoa, roasted malts. Taste is smooth, palate robust, for the extreme low ABV. Cocoa, bitter hops, coffee persist and linger to deliver a good porter.

ddrab (39) - WALES - JAN 12, 2017
A lovely drinkable porter. Plenty of dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma and taste without the associated harshness. Personally I felt it was too carbonated for the style, but still a very nice beer.

invinoveritas (148) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours thick and black with a chocolate, raisin and coffee nose. Full and rich to taste, hitting all the right notes. Truly excellent but so rich (despite the fairly low ABV) perhaps not a session drink.

Cask I think at a pub in Edinburgh. Black color. Simple, but good palate. Low carbonation, roasted malt and a little chocolate. Good porter, it not offering anything new.
