Bottle at home, as 6.3%. Pours very dark, a bit overconditioned and came out of bottle. Very fizzy. Better to leave for a while. Nose is cocoa, dryish chocolate, roast. Taste is quite rich, chocolate, dark fruits, light treacle. Stuu666 (13395) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 26, 2014

Bottle at home from aleselajamestulloch (4109) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2013
dark murky peat brown with thin dark beige lacing. Biggest gusher since the Leeds bruichladdich aged special 2 years ago, lost 2/3 of the bottle. Rich fruity tobacco and licorice on the nose. Lively carbonation, full bodied, blackcurrant, treacle toffee. Fairly brief dry warming finish.
Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a huge tan head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, plum and cappuccino. Straightforward flavour of coffee and milk chocolate. Medium to full body with a creamy, almost chewable mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A robust Porter indeed. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2013
500ml bottle from Alesela. Gusher! Lost a bit on opening, even though it was damned cold. Murky dark brown with a massive rocky head. Metallic aromas, but chocolate and toffee underneath. Nice creamy texture, bitter roasty finish. Carbonation way too high! Would like to try as a cask beer.

[500ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine, Edinburgh] Pours like a Coke float, huge spuming earthy brown bubbles, enormous head atop a brownish-black liquid. Aroma is rich; liquorice, chocolate, something slightly perfumed in there as well. Massively corbonated, on the palate, each sip flutters in the mouth. But the flavours are full-on, lots of dark roasted chocolate, bitter coffee and liquorice. Covers the mouth on the aftertaste. Pull up a seat, son  mr_h (5528) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2013

500ml bottle shared with mr_h. Almost black, massive foamy head, bottle exploded on opening. Chocolate coffee malt aroma. Sweet toffee chocolate flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Somewhere between a porter & Scottish Ale. cgarvieuk (24479) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013

Bottle (7.5%) from Dunnottar Wines. It pours near black with a thick beige head. The nose is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, earth, hint of smoke, caramelised banana and burnt toffee. The taste is rich, roasted malt, toast, earth, chocolate, dark fruit, touch of alcohol, light bitterness and ash with a dry, roasty finish. Fullsome body and moderate+ carbonation. Flavoursome and well integrated. A rather well-made porter. Perhaps a touch too much carbonation, but other than that its rather good.
