Black with lasting tan head.
Roast, soy, smoke. Fulle body, medium carbonation, long roasted finish. This is really good. Scopey (15663) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Keg at Fermentoren. It pours jet black with a thick, dense tan head. The nose is roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits and salted liquorice. The taste is rich, roasty, dark, light coffee, liquorice, mild acidity, sharpness, salted caramel and a touch of alcohol towards the finish. Fullsome body and moderate carbonation. Nice depth to it. The balance is pretty brilliant. Very tasty indeed. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014

Jan 2014 - Keg at Craft Clapham. Black with a small beige head. Smell - cheesy hops, caramel, soft dark malts. Body is medium, carbonation is pretty high initially but calms down over time. Taste - caramel, lemon, lime, ash, dark chocolate, roasted barley. Good, hoppy porter that comes across a bit like a black IPA. (3.8)
Feb 2014 - Keg at Cask P&K. I had to try this again because of the high ratings from other Ratebeerians - just to make sure. Black with a slowly dissipating brown head. Aroma - toned down - some liquorice, rye and caramel coming through. Body is medium, foamy. Taste is lemon peel and rye up front, rounded off with some dark malts, a nice level of sweetness. It’s like a dark chocolate and lemon tart. Background calpol. Very similar impression to last time, although maybe it’s in slightly better condition here. Good. (3.9)
On tap at Biercab. Black colour with beige head. Chocolate, roasted, coffee aroma. Chocolate taste, slightly sweet, also some roastiness and coffee, maybe some caramel. Full body.
