Nice malty aroma on this nearly black liquid. Smooth taste, I would prefer some more chocolate on this. Rather good brew with a suitable name, plain porter!

jjsint (2834) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Keg tap at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Dark brown, translucent, with a Guinnessy beige head. Roasted coffee, hazelnut, malt and nougat candy on the aroma. Bittersweet nutty taste with a strong hoppy bitter finish which stops just short of too much astringency. Espresso and black cherry in the aftertaste. Smooth palate. Too cold, but if you let it warm up a bit it allows the flavours to shine through. A decent keg porter.

TEJA (2937) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle from systembolaget sweden (the 5%). Big and lasting light brown head. Burnt caramell aroma with dark roasted malts. Big smooth malty taste wirh balanced bitterness and sweetness. Big body for such a low alcohole beer.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Pint pour from keg at brewpub in London. Dark and opaque. Great lacing; amazing creamy. Exactly what you hope in a nitro beer. Baking chocolate on the nose, with a similar taste. Taste is on the bitter side, but balanced. Tasty and easy to drink.

Ratto (132) - - DEC 12, 2015
Tap at Porterhouse. Very nice appearance with lasting nitro foam. Aroma coffee, some caramel malta. Taste is a combination of roasted malt and long herbal bitterness, some caramel notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
33cl bb23/10/2015, whew. Cold, but good quality whole bean filter coffee, woody red berry and blue grape in aroma. Trademark confident Porterhouse roast, going on char, bitter chocolate powder, ground berries, cold coffee. Easy drinking, especially compared to their masterpiece of a 4x Wrasslers Stout dark hole wallop.

11.2 oz. bottle thanks to David. Appearance: 2 fingers great tan head, dark brown color, clear, Aroma: heavy chocolate, light grassy hops, hint of roast. Palate: medium to full body, average to slightly less than average carbonation, slightly sticky, light dry finish, velvety smooth. Taste: sweet chocolate and caramel with a slight soapy and grassy bitter hop finish that peaks in a little bit, finishes with sweet. Overall, very pleasant beer, impressed. Nothing really to write home about, but very nice beer to have a few of.

ABV 5% St, rostad doft med toner av mrka torkade frukter. Svart brygd med aningen rdaktig ton. Kort skum. Smaken r halvst, ltt rostad med inslag av kaffe och med en torr avslutning. Ondigt myket kolsyra och lite tunn kropp.
