Bottle: Chouffe glass: Creamy tan head. Blackish brown body. Aromas of tobacco, dried herbs, wood roast, manure, laurel Flavour of tobacco, toast, malts, some bitters, light tints of dried herbs/leaves and caramel... Aftertaste is bitter, toast/light roast, caramel, malts and tobacco... Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, watery texture. Flavour and aroma are light, watery and not that inviting. But the aftertaste seems to be the strongest part of this beer. jercraigs (11264) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2018
2018-02-18. Black body, modest frothy tan head. 3++ Aroma is relatively mild but pleasant. Lighty dusty dark malt, light cocoa, muted roast, and a whisper of a nutty accent. Flavour is similarly subtle, lightly bitter throughout, light roast malt, hints at accents of caramel, treacle and nutty notes. Lightly bitter nutty toasty malt lingers in the finish. Smooth average bodied palate. On the subtle side at times but well balanced and flavourful, very nice. 7/4/7/3-4/16+ Bottle as Tempest Elemental Dark Ale from the LCBO via online order, Toronto.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 0,33 cl. Robe brune quasi noire. Nez : café, chocolat noir, malt grillé. Bouche : idem et légère amertume. Le tout est plutôt léger pour la catégorie, mais bien équilibré et agréable. gunnfryd (15652) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2018

bottle from Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Black pour with a swiftly retreating tan head. Nose of coffee, licorice, raisin, plum pudding. Lots more coffee in the taste complemented by notes of chocolate nut and raisin. Good stuff. hauxe (1093) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2018
Pours dark brown from the bottle. The thin, frothy tan head soon fades. Aroma is an intriguing chocolate and coffee mix. And coffee in a pleasant way—roasted and fresh. Not the notes of yesterday’s used up coffee grounds that plague a lot coffee additive porters—of which this is not. Taste is sweet with a roasted bitterness. There is a light berry tang at the finish. Pretty damn complex for a beer of such modest body and ABV. Nice! evergreen0199 (3663) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle purchased from Oddbins, Baker Street store, London. A very dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate on the nose. Taste is similar, roasty, malty, fruity, chocolate and a hint of coffee with a bitter finale. Decent enough porter.
