Not what I was hoping for. This was my first Porterhouse, and I guess after their claims of being better than Guinness, I had my hopes up. Sorry....give me a Guiness, anyday. This taste like an amatures attempt at a stout. Its a little rough, has an alcohol bite, and a yeasty peat flavor.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2011
From tab. Small Guinness like caf late like colored head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was cold coffee, roasted malty notes, chocolate and light hoppy notes. Very drinkable. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry filling texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Coffee and light roasted malty bitter finish. Quite nice.

NosirIwont (2409) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle. About 1 month past best before. Pours a dark ruby/brown with a beige/light brown head. Sweet, roasted aroma with a faint metallic overtone. Flavour is roasted and a bit tart with a metallic note. Feels a bit watery though. Bitter, roasted finish with the bitterness lingering, accompanied by notes of hops and grass. Remote coffee note develops as it warms. Overall a good, solid light stout with a good drinkability. 20.09.11.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
August 15, 2011 - on draught at Porterhouse (Covent Garden). Deep clear ruby with a tan/light brown creamy head, doesnt diminish at all - looks like it should be a dessert topping. Beautiful simple light porter aroma - non-acidic roast, dry, a bit of mineral and cocoa - vague . Taste follows - simple, smooth, light body, mild carbonation, quick-finishing with no real aftertaste, just some dry grainy roast and light herbal bitterness. So good, and I love how there is no sweetness or syrup to it. Nice one.

Sigmund (6950) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2011
330 ml bottle with tear-off cap, from lkonsortiet, Aalborg. ABV is 5%. Very dark brown to black colour, large beige head. Roasty aroma with notes of mild coffee and dark chocolate, a hint of wood and bonfires, also hints of hops. Very nice roasty flavour, fairly dry, notes of coffee, hints of dark bitter chocolate and wood, decent hops throughout. Not extreme in any way, just well balanced and highly drinkable.
