(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Deep, dark brown colour. Faint nutty, slightly fruity nose. Soft, roasty, coffee flavour, - but with a dissapointingly thin/short finish, and watery mouthfeel. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
Cask. Very dark brown colour. No head. Thin fruity flavour. Not my idea of a porter, but it is not bad. harrisoni (19336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2005

Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Almost black, with a large creamy light brown head. Vague aroma of coffee beans and vanilla. Smooth flavout of coffeebeans, cocoa with notes of sweat. Light aftertaste of coffee, almond and hay. A very laid-back porter. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2005
Cask conditioned at The Rover, Göteborg..
My first glance at this porter - I found it very good. Almost black, if not totally. Super smooth mouthfeel. Plain chocolatey but not overly. Very long flavour. No roastiness. Only slight slight bitter. The caramel is there. I noticed acetaldehyd(green apples) but found it very fitting. Long long finish. Solid porter. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2005
Cask @ Oliver Twist, StockholmSilkTork (5855) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Thin body but a dense off white head. Dusty burnt aroma. Strange loying sweetness. Like very cheap chocolate ersatz. Plus a slight acidity.

Dec, 2003: The Alexandra, Chatham - a Sheps pub. Woah! What a difference a cask makes! Steady deep black with nut brown & scarlet hues on the fringes - very light off white ring. Good medium bodied mouthfeel - constant, filling, but not clinging or fatty. Vague dirty malt up front which clears into a refreshing blackcurrant fruit leading into a licorice tinged finish. Flavours are soft and subtle, though intensity builds toward the front of the finish. A very pleasant flavour profile - satisfactory, refreshing and engaging. Top quality from middle onwards. Smokey aroma with damp coffee grounds and a touch of black chocolate. Very yummy indeed! [4.3]chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2004
Dec, 2004: <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/63/637 Tavern, Kings Cross - a Shep’s pub. Wow! Perfect mouthfeel. Exciting and comforting. Bags of spunky dark beer flavours - coffee, chocolate, licorice - all wrapped up in one funky blanket of pure pleasure. My mouth sure loved this one! London Xmas Crawl. [4.2]
Dec, 2005. <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/37/376 Dr Butler’s Head, The City - a Sheps pub. Celebrated Piers’ graduation with lashings of the Porter. And a good time was had by all. A fine beer. [4.0]
Appealing dark brown colour with a reddish tinge. Roast malt, chocolate and caramel in the aroma. More of the same in the flavour, with licorice too and a sweetish edge. Quite soft mouthfeel. Not the most full bodied porter, but rather nice. Good balance. Cask (handpump), Mabels Tavern, Kings Cross, London.
