Bottle at BrewDog. Massive gushing pour, about 4in of foam! Nose is good though, massive funky liquorice, slightly vegetal, milk chocolate. Chocolate front, crazy fizzy, nice roast malts, hot chocolate powder, liquorice, slight roasty ashy finish. Nice beer, massively over-carbonated :(

badgerben (5373) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Very dark brown color with a towering head, like an over-carbonated Saison. Aroma of dry chocolate with some dried fruit. Dry, chalky mouthfeel. Light chocolate flavor. Some earthy/spicy hops. Way, way over-carbonated, like violent Champagne. I have no idea how long this bottle was sitting on the shelf where I got it, so I would be happy to give this another go some day. The effervescence really wrecked it.

Absolutely terrific porter. Black with record lasting head. The pleasant roast yields to a rich roasted flavour that seems to get better with each sip. Full mouthfeel, bittersweet chocolate

Mdsurveyor (46) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Nice dark pour with a creme colored 1/2" head. Very little aroma. Bubbly on the tongue with a very subtle chocolate flavor. Pairs well with spicy food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (2532) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 11, 2012
28/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (500ml bottle). Nera, intensa, con riflessi bruni, buona schiuma bianco sporca abbastanza persistente. Aroma intensissimo di malti tostati e luppolo, meravigliosamente ben bilanciati tra loro. In bocca ha un esordio dolciastro, in cui si riconoscono note di malti tostati, cioccolato e caffè, e un ben finale amaro intenso ma assolutamente non invadente. Copro medio, carbonazione corretta. Una delle migliori porter mai assaggiate finora.
