Deep ruby pour with a soapy brown grey head. Powdered cappuccino on the nose with a lactic sweetness. Dry ashy hops. In the mouth, it’s very much on the instant coffee and liquorice side of things, but quite one toned and cheap. Finishes on that lactic sweetness, which makes this one drink a bit like a milk stout. Overly sweet, forced carbonation seal the deal and it’s not one I’m planning on taking up again. MrBishop (79) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2016

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 330ml bottle. Reddish tinged dark brown colour with a creamy beige foam head leaving alittle lacing. Rich chocolatey & vanilla nose. Taste is malty, toffee, powdered dark chocolate, vanilla, some coffee and with earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter chocolate finish. Quite drinkable. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle @home, The I can’t believe they voted for Trump tasting (Nov 8th). Pours black with a biggish tan head. Nose is chocolate, big milk chocolate, slight coca-cola. Taste is more of the same with a bigger chocolete kick if that was possible than the nose. Drank this many times before ratebeer.com, i liked it then and i like it now. zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - NOV 5, 2016

Bottle in Whetherspoons last night. Pours very dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma is quite interesting, chocolate (obviously), coffee, slight roasty notes and a slight hoppiness. Medium to strong sweet taste, quite smooth and noticable chocolatey flavour. A decent beer but not the best of the style Bijl (882) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2016
Heel donker/Amberrood.. net nog licht doorlatend, crèmekleurige schuimkraag...snel weg, iets koolzuur zichtbaar.
Aroma: Veel Chocolade, donker geroosterde mouten, vanille, mokka.
Smaak: Eerste slok is heel veel donkere en bittere chocolade die langzaam overgaat in mokka en koffie. Bij de tweede slok komen de donkere mouten, vanille en fruitige noten naar voren.... maar licht. Deze porter draait om choco, koffie en geroosterde mout.
Medium body, medium koolzuur, licht bitter en droge afdronk.
