Black as my ex’s heart. Coffee, dark chocolate, hops. Drinkable indeed, would like more alcohol but can’t have everything or my missus would be a big titted, peachy arsed filthpot. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2008

Bottle picked up from Westholme, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, had this 11-05-08 Pours deepest darkest brown with a small beige head. Good fruity roasted taste, marvellously flavoursome with a great punchy bitterness. There is just a smidgen of toffeeness in this but this is soon beaten back by the roasted bitter assault. A quite lovely porter that even allowing for some hoppiness seems to be a very good example of the style, I for one loved this. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008

This is what a porter should be. Coffee dryness but with malty sweetness to balance it. Hop bitterness and flavor is low but present thewolf (12800) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 14, 2008

Pour deep black with a small creamy beige film head. Aroma is really amazing, coffee, roasted, chocolate - all very composed. Fine carbonation. Flavour is lovely too, rather dry, a little hops, good coffee, chocolate and cocoa. Very nice porter!
Cask in Blackfriers. Looks great in the glass. Aroma from cask in floural citrus hops, from pint has hints but dominated by chocolate malts. Taste is also packed with choc malts, quite hoppy for the style, but tasty and even me the hater of dark beers had a pint after work. cgarvieuk (25987) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2007
