ManVsBeer (10452) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Clear dark brown, no head. Has a nice, light roasted malt aroma and taste with its strength undistinguishable from its character. Has a gentle sweetness. Brandon1989 (661) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours a dark brown and ruby color with a small beige head. The aroma was mostly chocolate and roasted caramel. The taste was very similar with a light/medium mouth feel and also some coffee notes as well. This beer may be a novelty beer but it is definitely worth a try! malrubius (2896) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Novelty beer received as a gift. Brown with lasting head. Toasted caramel and bready aroma. Sweet toasted bready caramel and nuts and some fruit. Mild English bitterness. Lingering mild chocolate. Some cloy. Medium full body. Not very good but not as bad as I thought. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2015
16.9 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, roasty, woody, and nutty, with hints of burned caramel, lactose, molasses, toffee, and bug spray. Taste/Palate: sweet and crisp; finishes astringent. julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Has a nice chestnut color. Aroma isn’t anything noteworthy other than roasty. The flavor is dry, roasty and a bit smokey. There is a slight bitterness and astringency to it. Was much easier on the palate when it warmed.

Some people are saying this is flat, and "unbalanced" - I think it’s a great example of a British Porter...something with a lighter body. It’s not what I would go for if I was looking for a more modern porter with "bigger" notes to it...but it’s nice and easy drinking. I enjoyed it. stephencoxy (1) - - JAN 2, 2015 does not count
Poor tasting beer for 6%, felt a bit watery, like flat coke. Lacked balance as mentioned in another comment. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
12/24/2010. From bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate aromas. Seem a bit watery and unbalanced. Sweet malty finish finol (3385) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle at Amaranten.
Pours dark brown with a little brown head.
Drinkable and simple chocolate taste. lstorie3 (23) - Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Not a bad beer. Easy drinker. Nothing terribly Christmas-y about it, but I didn’t really count off for that. I wouldn’t seek it out, but I wouldn’t refuse it if offered.
