This beer is divine, an English porter cannot get any better than this. it pours a luxuriously textured dark brown color with very little light coming in. the head is about two inches tall, and super creamy, light mocha in color. the nose is fantastically enticing, with a lot of milk chocolate notes from the malt, a bitterness from the roasted barley, and a hint of tartness to it as well from the hopping. the flavor is packed full with roasted malts, and is heavy on both the sweet and bitter chocolate components. this is even better than their acclaimed oatmeal stout, something about those stone fermenters really lets the yeast shine in all of their beers, and its an excellent complement to the dark bittersweet complexion of this porter. very little sweetness in the finish though, as the hops and burnt grains bitter it right up. full bodied and smooth as anything, I love the feel of this beer too. my only complaint is that its sold in four packs instead of six packs, I always seem to be wanting another one or two at the end of a session. wow this is just a splendid porter, an example to be followed on both sides of the atlantic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (831) - 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.

I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in Zrich and I drank it after the job yesterday at home like a dessert. In my point of view, it is a decent porter, all the things that you could expect. The body is a powerful brown and black chocolate, thin foam, average carbonation. The taste is with notes of roasted malt, coffee, hop, decent bitterness, overall well balanced and classical.

labeerinthum (608) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 9, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova il caff. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta ed il bicchiere si contorna di una schiuma di un pizzo che ti invita ad essere un compagno complice di bevute. Le bollicine soni fini e medie. La carbonazione abbondante. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione abbondante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo strutturato. Il dolce medio, come lamaro. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa buona. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale lungo, pulito, complesso ed asciutto. Il retrogusto persistente. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, cioccolato, caff e frutta secca.
