UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 330mL bottle from Boozebud, $5. Undated.
Appearance: Dark brown/black. Small tan head which immediately faded to a broken cap. 2
Aroma: Toasted malt, supported by chocolate and coffee. Either this bottle from Boozebud is old or the beer's aroma is restrained. 5
Taste: Sweet malt, toasty malt, coffee. Didn't get roast malt. Low bitterness, slight sourness. Brief aftertaste. 7
Palate: Moderate carbonation. Nice creamy texture with small sized bubbles. 4
Overall: Not bad but nothing makes me want to buy it again. 13 CurlyJoe (305) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2017 Not much aroma, a little coffee and hops. Big coffee hit and taste though. Quite refreshing for a porter. E_leap (13) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2016
A beer which is all about the after taste, chocolate and coffee ever lasting aromas after every sip, a beautiful dark color, amazing head, sourness that compliments and confirms the coffee aromas, texture is perfect to represent a porter and sets it aside from Stouts, small bubble carbonation that collapses in the palate to create a creamy mouth feel, this is a PORTER !
It should not be compared or mistaken for a dark ale, or a stout !! Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
Medium brown, has a chocolatey nose that’s a bit one-dimensional. Goes through a sweeter chocolatey taste. Has light toffee..in the dark mild style but way bigger. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 6, 2015

From 330 ml bottle. Pours a solid dark brown/black with a sudsy tan head that subsides to a cap. Aromas of milk chocolate, raisins, prunes and coffee. Taste shows dark fruit at the front before a coffee bean and dark chocolate bitterness leading into a smoky note at the end. Smooth finish with a chocolatey aftertaste. Good stuff.

From a 330ml bottle on 17/7/2015. Pours not far off black with a small to medium tan head. Has quite a strong chocolate aroma. Sweet chocolate dominates the flavour too, but there’s also a good dash of coffee, and some vanilla, against a light roasty background. It displays a decent bitter kick, which sets off the sweetness nicely. Medium to full body with average carbonation. This is a very tasty, well made porter. Tried two from this brewer so far and they’re both winners. TedE (1424) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2015

On tap at The Archive. Pours thick and dark with a tightly bubbled tan head, laces well, smooth with strong chocolate running through the roasted flavours. Mild coffee on the aftertaste, I liked it a lot.
