A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Nodrog (13) - - APR 30, 2013
Acidic aroma. Decent colour and head. Flavour is a total mess, acrid bitterness and over-the-top coffee notes. Far too much going on and not blended well at all. Unpleasant bitter finish. Classic example of trying too hard. very poor.

Borresteijn (7602) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2017
On tap at Euston Tap East. Almost black colour, no head. Aroma of hard-roasted malts, caramel, coffee, smells bold. Flavour is watery, roasted malts, raisins, caramel, light fruity and coffee sourness, bitter finish. Light bodied. Smells promising but doesn’t deliver.

Handpump at Craft Beer Co - Covent Garden, London. Black pour with reddish highlights, brownish foam (retention). Nose: burnt coffee, cocoa powder, crazy. Mouth: raw porter, very extreme in some way. Rustic burnt malt feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
A nice smell of malt and milk chocolate, light amout of roasted malt. The medium large beige creamy head has a long duration. The body is black. At first a taste of chocolate, later on it gets more dry. The body is light to medium strong, creamy and dry with a normal carbonation.

Cask at Euston Tap, London. Dark brown, beige head. Fruity, chocolatey, some ashtray. Medium bodied, light to medium carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness.
