Fantastic caramel and chocolate nutty finish. I keep this beer around and use it to braise my ribs. Best porter I have found for cooking with. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Some caramel and roasted notes to the nose. Very smooth and easy taste - nice roasted flavors and so tasty. mike5326 (1744) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Nice dark coffee brown with a short lived head. It smells of roasted coco beans. Nice roasted taste with a mild bitter accent.

deep black pour, nice thick crewamy beige head. Huger aroma of chocolate, and coffee, a superb porter. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottled, pour is dark black. aroma is a bit weak. Taste is the best taste in a porter I have tasted. It is fairly strong of coffee and also some chocolate flavors, backed with those dark roasty malts. The beer finishes with what is a very smooth silky finish, Very enjoyable beer Alusmamuts (1904) - LATVIA - DEC 27, 2012

650ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines.This poured almost black with a good sized brown head which diminished quite quickly.Aromas of chocolate malts and dark chocolate.Lovely smooth flavour of roast malt and chocolate with hints of coffee and toffee.Last part of the bottle and on warming a little a lovely blend of caramel and chocolate.Very satisfying and enjoyable.
