evergreen0199 (3503) - 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.

Deep brown, beige head. Chocolate, light cramele, light winey notes. Robust yet easy drinking, chocolate, coffee, burnt grains, firm hoppy bitterness. Very nice.

rodsquad (351) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. Looks black with a nice light tan fluffy head. Very appealing. Looking forward to this. Aromas have a dark roast blending with a whiff of smoked cask. There's a smoothness like vanilla against a berry-fruit sharpness. The flavours have a lovely smooth chocolateyness offset with a sharp fruitiness and lingering roasted bitterness. A lovely feel to the beer with a medium to full body and dry mild sparkle. It says it's robust and robust it is. Lovely rich roast and fruity beer for warming fireside satisfaction. Winter is here.

Holmen1 (6563) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2017
Jeg går planken på True North Stavanger på deres 1-årsdag, nov-17: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Deilig røstet aroma og smak med mørke sjokolader, luksuskaffe og lekker humleprofil. Tørr, lang og god ettersmak.

From tap at True North, Stavanger, with OGJ 13.11.17. Ebony. Dense and persistent brown head and lacing. Fine aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla and cigar box. Similarly fine taste, with hints of smoke and pine. Well balanced bitterness and moderate sweetness. Good drinkability.

Bottle, Oddbins West Hampstead. Nice dark brown colour, almost black, white foam. Interesting one this, with a nice spicy and fruity twang to it which sat nicely along with chocolate and a hint of roast malt. Not overly bitter. Good one.
