Opaque black - brown beer. Good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and semi dry. Mild dark malts with some cereal character. Traces of roast and bubblegum ester. Finishes soft with very mellow hops. Quite an engaging porter.
Bottle at home in London. Pours a very clear brown with a fine, foamy beige head. Aroma holds dry, toasted brown bread, some chalky cocoa, hints of tangy earth. Light sweet flavor with hints of tangy, semi-dark malts, a bit of cocoa, earth, light ash, burnt wood. Light to medium bodied with soft, fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, more toasty bread, some mellow earthy bitterness, dirt, baking cocoa. There’s some good character here, but the body is a bit thin. I actually have a tough time believing this beer is 6.8%. But the lack of oomph does make it pretty easy drinking.

Pours mahogony brown witha thin tan head that soon dissipates entirely leaving no edgeing, just the odd little pools of bubbles atop the glass.
Nose is roast malts, dark fruits, coffee tones, treacle toffee, touch of smoke, light medicinal notes. At first I thought there wasn’t a lot doing with the aroma of this beer, but it does have some complexity, just pretty subtle and not a nasal assault.
Tastes of light roast malt, dark fruits, prunes, dates, coffee, light hops, pinch of chocolate.
Light to medium body - a touch watery even, surprisingly light for 6.8% with light spritzy carbonation leading to a roasty finish.
Ok - but I wouldn’t go out of my way for this again! harrisoni (19348) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
33cl bottle from the Sainsbury’s Beer Hunt 2013 range. Drunk listening to Shelby Lynne. Mellow. Friday evening. Last beer of the day. And it’s been a good day. I’ve travelled and done stuff. Had experiences. Enjoyed myself. Black beer, lasting thick dark beige head. Obviously a lot of carbonation which I’m hoping will have calmed down with the vigorous pour into a Duvel glass. Aroma of liquorice and chocolate and some coffee. I’m not keen on liquorice and this has it all the way through the beer. There is some decent mocha flavour there as well. Funnily enough just a little watery in the mouth, not as malty beefy as I expected. It’s fine, if you like liquorice, which I don’t. Mocha coffee is fine. But as I say, a little watery and could be fuller on the swallow. Scopey (15753) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Cask at CASK. It pours darkest brown with a tiny beige head. The nose is roasted malt, light smoke, earth and toast. The taste is roasty, toast, treacle, earth, cola, berry, light jamminess and coffee with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and light stickiness. Pretty tasty stuff. imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Black with cream head. Initially a fairly tangy, prickly beer, fruity, fullish on the palate. From there a fruity sweetness shows through, some caramel, milky chocolate. A pretty decent beer. Stuu666 (14916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours black, nose is roasted chocolate, taste is rich sweet chocolate.
