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 (6197) - 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 (4366) - CROATIA - OCT 23, 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. GregMooreNH (121) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 15, 2017
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.
