50 cL bottle. Pours black with a dense light brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Promise of a roasted and hops bitter flavour. Flavour is mild tar, light smoked, roasted malt and smooth chocolate following. Very smooth with liqourice added along the way. Light roasted bitterness following into a chocolate and roasted malt bitter finish. Very nice. One of the pre-RB beers I finally get to rate. Perfect for boiling vegetables in the owen, carrots for instance. Seriously! Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2004
A pitch black beer with a small chocolate brown disappearing head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of roasted bread and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted bread, alcohol, and chocolate, but the body is a little thin. joergen (29624) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
Dark beer with a low brown head.
Intensive aroma of malt and liquorice.
The taste is powerful but dominated by english liquorice.
A very good porter, especially on a cold day. anders37 (27635) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2006

Opaque black beer. Palate slightly crisp. Even dark malt. not bitter or roasty but tangy and with some minerals. Finishes semi dry with a touch of hop fruit and bitterness. Inoffensive.
Best beer of the night at the Publick House near Boston. Deep ruby-red medium-bodied porter with flavors of toffee and coffee, and a slightly smoky finish. It tasted like a true British porter, whereas most American porters taste like stouts. cgarvieuk (26387) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2007

Bottled. Black, rich head. Aroma of coffee and plums. Sweet, rich, salty and very burnt with notes of dates. Quite chocolatey. The mouthfeel is a bit less gentle than their Havre Stout, and it is cleaner and harder. Coffee and syrup in the finish.
