Bottle sainsburys. Black red decent tan head. Aroma is milk choc roasted malts taste same some spice liquorice smoke bitter finish. Medium body. Good stuff. Cimbasso (889) - - SEP 15, 2014
Black colour and amber head. Strong aroma of roasted malts. The taste is of coffee and liquorice with a good level of bitterness to balance the sweetness of the roasted malts. Nice long finish. A little watery - I would have liked a more mouth-filling quality. A well-made porter, but not as good as some examples. undercurrent25 (2131) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Pours a dark colour with a thin head, taste is of liquorice and burnt sugars, quite rich, not my kind of thing ManVsBeer (10281) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Salford. Despite the clear glass bottle (and spending a year in the personal beer cellar), the taste and texture does not seem to have been compromised and this is a punchy porter with a milky roasted malt nose and a slightly grittier than this taste. Almost black with a bubbly head. Nisse666 (7328) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014

Mild caramel aroma. Pure black with a slight creamy head. Very bitter and sharp taste. Mild coffee undertones.

500ml bottle at home. Pours near-black, big bubbly beige head. Light roast and chocolate aromas. Taste has a little more chocolate, slight metallic note. Sweet finish. Quite light bodied and thin. Not bad, not great. booldawg (70) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Quite effervescent for the style. Good mix of malt/hops. Thin tan head. Quite fizzy on the tongue. MaartenRF10 (1949) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Clear black, light tan head, fading. Mostly roasted malts and coffee this one. Rather watery. Miss the chocolate, so I will just eat that with the beer.
