Draft @ Borefts. Aroma is roast, coffee, caramel. Flavour is creamy somewhat watery coffee, roast, caramel, liquorice. Nice. leaparsons (10655) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are chocolate and coffee with liquorice. Cherry cola with marzipan nuttiness and light funkiness. Flavours are coffee and dark berries with woody notes. Spritzy lemony yeast with dark chocolate bitterness. Cola with earthy and herbal notes. A little bit thin bodied but decent nonetheless.

Buena porter, suave en sabor y en aroma, muy fácil de beber. themightyjag (590) - - APR 14, 2014
330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Bubbly tan head disappears quickly, a little lacing. Very dark body. Nose full of coffee and roasted nuts, a little chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is creamy coffee, dark berries and dark chocolate on the finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin but still manages to have richness. Medium carbonation. This is a great beer, well balanced and ridiculously drinkable - no hint of the 6.9% in the taste. McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 9, 2014
Tan head pitch black colour and a solid viscousity. Noses of coffe, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and dark toffee notes with hints of dark sugar syrup. Slick texture with a faint livelyness fading quickly into a full body with some well balanced sweetness and bitter roastyness. The finish is a short but harmonic coffee/chocolate bitterness fading into a lasting pleasant roastyness. Christos (5862) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter, ABV 6.9%. Thanks to Lonick for this!
Totally black pour on the body, brown head, bigger than one finger, with good retention. A foam island along with big bubbles remains on the surface after the head has collapsed, plus some light lacing around the glass.
Aroma is mainly of liquorice and coffee but there are some nice chocolate notes as well.
Taste also of liquorice, light chocolate, a weird acidity, roasted malts and a very bitter aftertaste.
Medium body, good carbonation that you feel, quite dry palate.
Overall a good porter. KyotoLefty (10523) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Nice chocolate and dark malt nose. Rather light in body, easy drinking, nice flavors but for the abv not a whole lot of punch. Decent.
