3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Into my nonic, it pours just like as its name says leaving the same color body. A gentle foamy one inch tan/off-white head appears and settles into the top of the body leaving some small paper thin hills on top. The smell is roasty and bold with nice chocolate and coffee notes. The taste is the same yet offering a bit of a woodiness in it as well. The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, and fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a pretty good beer for its style and one that I would come back to.
Pours a nice near black from a bottle. Big roasted malt aroma, hint of chocolate. Flavor is a bitter cola, again chocolate, finishes dry and bitter. Okay beer. DutchDrebus (6191) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2017

Very similar to a Sweet Stout.
I usually don't like Sweet Stouts, but this has enough bitterniss to balance out the high sweetness. Iznogud (4312) - CROATIA - OCT 23, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml from Pivoljub. Shared with Max, JFK10000, Simon. Pours black with beige head. Roasted malts, dried fruit, chocolate, sweetish. Dry bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. angoradad (12) - USA - OCT 16, 2017
A good British porter is always a treat, so I was delighted to pick up a can of this beer. Pours black and smooth, with limited lacing on the glass. Aroma was of caramel with a hint of sweetness. Taste was chocolate with a bitter, hoppy aftertaste. Not one I'd recommend, based on my expectation of the style.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Pours black with foamy head. Aroma is deep chocolate. Flavor starts as chocolate, but quickly transforms into a bitty hoppiness, reminiscent of an IPA. Bitter flavor lingers through finish. Not what I was expecting. brunopbraga (12) - Fortaleza, BRAZIL - OCT 15, 2017

Pours dark black with a thin tan head and thick lacing.
Aroma is coffee, chocolate, ash, candied orange, plum and mint. Taste is sweet with a medium bitter finish. Nice mouthfeel but a touch thin.
Another 1% on the ABV and this would be very decent, just falls a little short. lokis333 (572) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 15, 2017
Jet black colour with decent frothy brown foam. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee with milky notes and a touch of sweet dried fruit like figs and plums as well as a slight earthy touch. Palate, full body with smooth creamy texture leaving slight bitter finish. Taste bitter of chocolate, and coffee with a touch of cocoa. Overall, the nice rich texture just could be a tad thicker but none the less still an awesome beer.
