From tap. Pours pitch black with a dense, creamy and tan head. Aroma is roasted malty, breadish. Dry, roasted, alcohol and dark roasted malty. Bitter, dry and slight herbal. Dark roasted far finish. Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2005
[Sampled 2 and 2½ years old] A dark red-brown beer with a huge chocolate-brown head. The aroma is sweet and slightly acidic with notes of chocolate, coffee, malt, and alcohol - nice - but a little too much alcohol for my liking. The flavor is sweet with lots of roated malt combined notes of chocolate, and coffee, as well hints of alcohol - which is more present in the mouthfeel, where it burns the tongue. The end is pretty hoppy which together with the roasted malt and coffee gives it a bitter end, though with the alchol making a clear presence. Surprisingly this is a bit over the top giving it some sour hints - but still a solid brew. joergen (28102) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2016

On tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush as Stone 6th Anniversary Porter. Black beer lasting tan head. Big dark chocolate aroma. It’s a porter with chocolate then a bit thin as it goes on then a lot of dryness and bitterness. Not sure what to make of it. I like the aroma and mouthfeel amd the poise of the beer but it’s weird as well. Oily tarry. Too intense maybe. Too tight. It needs to relax. Finish lacks finesse. mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
On tap at Bailey’s, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a lot of tart vinous notes, a little perfume and some peated malt - strange nose. Flavour reveals a ton of peated malt upfront - mixed with the barrels, it gives off a weird perfumey, varnish-like quality which isn’t pleasing. Some stale coffee grounds as well. I’m surprised at the high ratings for this; either that, or this keg is off. Not a fan. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2003
Very dark burgundy. Aroma shows roast, coffee, hazelnuts, light smoke. Palate also has some subtle smoke, lots of dry hoppiness, good roast character. Light creaminess comes in late but there's another flurry of hops as well. A few less of those would do well. More of a foreign stout IMO.
