john44 (3041) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle. Very dark brown to black in colour. Very malty (espresso coffee, dusty dark chocolate, roast malts). Fruity (dark fruits, raisins). Full-bodied beer with intense dry tangy chocolaty character. Sweetish, ending in a slight hop bitterness. Very drinkable. Lovely Porter. (2011-07-20)

Bottle. Black with a shade of brown. Small head. Aroma of barley and roasted malts. Minimal vinous and fruity. Taste is malts, dark chocolate, cocoa and a hint of coffee. Sweet. Dry. Some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Oily and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Well done and balanced.

BeerViking (4619) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2016
Draught at the Cheshire Cheese, looks like Guinness but tastes like a creamy Schwarzbier - ashy with red fruit, over a rich creamy-dry texture.

ajnepple (6313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2016
12 oz single bottle from Mollys Spirits. Black appearance with a lacy tan head. Aroma of roasted grain, light caramel malt, vanilla, chocolate and light coffee. Similar flavor, rich, dark and malty with a lingering bittersweet finish. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Solid porter overall.

aleigator (945) - GERMANY - NOV 13, 2016
Pours pitch black with a big, fluffy beige head. Smells of milk chocolate, fudge, earth and dried raisins. Roasted hazelnuts mingle into a pleasant malt foundation, which produces a nice sweetness. Has a soft carbonation, together with a very light, slighty metallic mouthfeel among a good amount of fluffy cream and chocolate. Tastes of rustic bread dough, earth and toffee malts with a glazed caramel topping, soothed by cream and a metallic carbonation. Finishes with even more cream and a subtle tartness among scented wood. Very light, creamy and chocolate driven with a strange metallic carbonation.
